Summer Concerts!

The Arboretum at Flagstaff presents Banditos on Saturday, July 5th, at 5:30pm! Banditos is a group of six operating out of Nashville bringing elements of '60s blues-fused acid rock, jangly boogie, and garage punk. Banditos recall many, but sound like no one but themselves. Bring your picnic blankets or chairs and enjoy the beautiful Flagstaff evenings with some great music here at the Arboretum. Get your tickets here!
