Moxi Theater 

Located in Greeley Colorado, the Moxi Theater is a beautiful music venue and concert hall that has been supporting local artists since 2013. What was once a dinner theater, this venue showcases everything from Rock, Blues, Indie Pop, Rap and so much more. Take a drive up to this college town, grab a bite to eat next door at Luna’s Tacos & Tequila then catch the local show upstairs. It’s sure to be a night to remember.
