AmadorLive hosts ‘Amador Dayz’ April 30-May 8


Owner Max Bower is bringing live entertainment back to Las Cruces in a big – but safe – way with the introduction of Amador Dayz in April and May.

Amador Dayz will begin Friday, April 30, and continue through Saturday, May 8, with seven major events in seven days on the main stage and event lawn at the AmadorLive Eatery and Entertainment District, 302 S. Main St. in downtown Las Cruces.

As Las Cruces is “slowly but surely coming out of this (the pandemic),” Amador Dayz will “kick off late spring and early summer for the whole town,” Bower said. “What could be better?”

With sound and light systems already set up on site for the April 29 banquet celebrating the premiere of “Walking With Herb,” Bower said a series of events for the entire community to enjoy was the perfect follow up.

Here is the lineup:

  • Friday, April 30: All Jazz’d Up, with special guest Latin Funktion, with music beginning at 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 1: The Ghetto Blaster, “Celebrating Six Years of Rocking Las Cruces,” with music beginning at 7:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, May 4: Ultimate College Night/DJ Night, beginning at 7 p.m., and featuring DJ Alpha Prime, Cykloid, DJ Johnny Kage, Neokiddd, DJ Mischievous and DJ Rob-E.
  • Wednesday, May 5: Mega Trivia Night on the main stage, beginning at 7 p.m., with DJ Mike G and DJ Viyez celebrating Cinco de Mayo.
  • Thursday, May 6: Super Fresco, beginning at 7 p.m., co-hosted by local musicians and featuring a broad range of music, including rock, country and jazz. “It’s all the hosts, all the bands, all at once,” Bower said.
  • Friday, May 7: Baby Bash Live with Brown Boy, hosted by STX Cheech, with Rob-E and DJ Suana also performing.
  • Saturday, May 8: Five-time Grammy winner Little Joe y La Familia, seating begins at 5 p.m., featuring local favorites UnLyshed and Satisfied with Karlos Sauceda.

There are table charges for Baby Bash (May 7) and Little Joe y La Familia (May 8) only. There are no cover charges for the other events. 

Amador Dayz is “a way to pull together and get us all back to some sense of normal,” Bower said. With its mix of events, “there is something here for everyone,” he said.

State public health orders will be followed during all events.

All shows require advance reservations. Call 575-541-7417.
