Word has it reggae-ska fusion music is totally fun to listen to for most every listener (music tastes are personal, of course). Colorado based band ‘Contraband’ is super cool, has a ton of musicians and plays its own special brand of reggae-ska fusion that just makes the soul soar to new heights. For the Zia Diner the chance to bring the band in to play for patrons Saturday May 16, 2015 was just too good to be true and too good to pass up. Don’t miss this one. The band is set to play 6 – 9 p.m. and the night is shaping up to be truly amazing.
