A Water Tower Turned Music Venue

In Colorado, a uniquely resonant performance space.




Alive Inside The Tank, last year’s standout recording by Mysteries of the Night, continues to receive its accolades.  Music critic Lloyd Barde has just proclaimed it the #1 Healing Arts and Yoga Music Album of the Year.  The album features James Marienthal on world flutes with vocal harmonies by Sarah Gibbons.  Plus royalties benefit The TANK Center for Sonic Arts.   Click here to buy the album.
