The best concert series in Central Iowa is in Valley Junction!

Since forming in Iowa City in 2007, The Uniphonics performed in more than 15 states, played at notable festivals, and opened for platinum selling artists. They’ve released 3 albums: Truth Be Told (2009), Crawl (2010), and The Uniphonics (2020). “Crawl” and “The Uniphonics” featured collaborations with internationally known artists, including Grammy Award winning jazz legend Robin Eubanks, Twin Cities vocal phenom Heatbox, and Iowa guitar legend Dennis “Daddy-O” McMurrin.

Their self titled album includes 12 songs that draw from hip hop, funk, soul, jazz, reggae, and latin traditions. They’ve been described as “taking the jam-band approach to hip hop,” with virtuosic live band instrumentation and improvisation.

The Uniphonics are a who’s who of the Eastern Iowa music scene. The band shares members with other regional and national acts, including Diplomats of Solid Sound, The Candymakers, The Channel Cats, BEEs, Plastic Relations, The Swampland Jewels, Jumbies, and dozens more. The Uniphonics are Iowa Public Radio’s 2023 April Artist of the Month.

Music in the Junction is the place to be in central Iowa on Thursday nights May through September. Railroad Park and the beverage garden opens at 5:00 pm with live music from 6:00-8:30 pm. Join us for a great season in Historic Valley Junction!

All Historic Valley Junction Foundation community events are free to attend, all ages, and with food and beverage available throughout.
