Sparta Headlines ‘El Paso Forever’ with Frontera Bugalu, Nalgadas Tuesday Night

It’s not everyday that a board member of a major community foundation headlines a big outdoor benefit concert. Then again, Jim Ward is not your average board member.

Jim will lead his internationally known band Sparta in the much-anticipated El Paso Forever concert — a benefit for the El Paso Community Foundation — at 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 20 outside on Oregon Street, between the Mills Building and San Jacinto Plaza.

Frequent Sparta tour mates Frontera Bugalu and Nalgadas, both highly regarded El Paso bands, will open the show.

Jim, in case you didn’t know, is on the board of the El Paso Community Foundation, whose motto is “For Good. For El Paso. Forever.”

When Sparta reconvened last year after a four-year break, it kicked off nearly a year’s worth of touring with a benefit for EPCF. Tuesday’s show bookends those 11 months of shows by the band, which includes bassist Matt Miller, guitarist Gabriel Gonzalez and drummer Cully Symington.

Admission is a $10 donation at the door, or you may donate in advance online (just print out your receipt).

All proceeds go to the El Paso Community Foundation, which will use the funds to update classrooms in the Borderplex region with computer labs. Additional donations also will be accepted during the show.

The El Paso Forever concert is generously sponsored by Microsoft TechSpark, a national civic program designed to expand economic opportunity and job creation through digital initiatives, including computer science education programs.
