2015 Summer Concert Series
2015 Concert Dates are May 23, June 6, July 5, August 1, and September 5. Details on artists are coming soon!
We enjoyed the following performers in 2014 - Thank you for your support!
June 7th: Domingo DeGrazia Spanish Guitar Band
Domingo DeGrazia blends Spanish guitar passion with the flair of Flamenco music. His music couples dynamic rhythms with vibrant Latin, Salsa and rock drum beats. An Arizona native raised with the sounds and imagery of the desert southwest, Domingo’s guitar playing has charmed audiences with songs that are as rhythmic as they are percussive; moving from passionate to whimsical, elegant to sorrowful.
JuNE 21: Chris & Lena JÁcome - Flamenco Duet
Chris and Lena Jácome provide intimate, inviting and exceptionally exciting flamenco performances that only a perfectly matched pair can manifest. Chris and Lena’s strong partnership and artistic communication keeps audiences mesmerized as they witness an unforgettable flamenco performance and the profound connection of two kindred spirits sharing their love for each other through their art.
july 5th: Todo mundo
Todo Mundo (“All the World”), who’s Organic Fire was voted “Best World Music Album” at the 2011 San Diego Music Awards, blends the musical flavors of Rumba, Reggae, Samba, Gypsy, and other South American and Caribbean rhythms into an irresistible groove that has been moving dance floors and connecting with audiences throughout North America, South America, and Europe!
August 2nd: Jessica Fichot and Vincent Z
Los Angeles-based chanteuse/songwriter Jessica Fichot is a lot like her hometown of Paris: French at heart, but with a soul that’s truly international. Drawing from her multi-ethnic French / Chinese / American upbringing, her music fuses styles and languages, taking the listener on a twisting journey out of the French chanson tradition, into the lands of gypsy jazz, Chinese 1940's swing, international folk, and into the wilderness of her imagination.
September 6th: Traveler
Traveler’s sound is an innovative fusion of World Music and Rock. Using traditional ethnic instruments combined with all the power of a full blown rock band, their performances are intense, exotic and adrenaline-driven. The real magic of a Traveler show is in the connection they make with the audience. They give a high energy, passionate performance that draws the audience in.
