Summer is Swinging in Woodstock… and at Cobalt!

Summer is finally here and the Cobalt Team couldn’t be more excited to show new clients and old friends everything in Woodstock. 

We’re so busy with work that it can be hard to get to all of the happy events in the area, but that won’t stop us from telling you, dear friends and clients, about it ALL! That way you, your team, business partners, and talent can get out and explore everything Woodstock has to offer outside the stage!

Here’s just a small sample of some of the fun this summer ☀️

Cumbia Night with Son Rompe Pera at Opus 40

Born and raised in Naucalpan, the deep outskirts of Mexico City, the Gama brothers and their band Son Rompe Pera have thrashed through all preconceived notions of what a marimba-centered band is. They’ve rendered the instrument inseparable from their punk ethos. 

Their shows have become home to the now-infamous marimba mosh pit across the globe. Their music joins intergenerational audiences in moments of essential release and community around their hard-hitting, forward-thinking, unrelenting punk-infused cumbias.
