Friday Night Live welcomes Pacific Mambo Orchestra
Friday Night Live, Cloverdale’s free outdoor summer concert series, continues the 2014 season this Friday, July 27, with the Pacific Mambo Orchestra.
This Grammy Award-winning Latin big band has changed the salsa landscape of the San Francisco Bay Area, playinig salsa, mambo, bolero and cha-cha witha unique and full sound.
The 19-piece ensemble, led by pianist Christian Tumalan and trumpeter Steffen Kuehn, rejuvenates the Latin big band sounds of the 1940s through 1960s. With a repertoire of mostly original scores, the selections move with a frenetic mammoth pace, producing palpable sounds, rhythms and beats in a way only a true big band can.
Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. in the 100 block of N. Cloverdale Blvd. with the Certified Farmers Market, which also offers a variety of craft vendors and food booths. Craft beer, local wines and nonalcoholic beverages are available for purchase during the evening. Local restaurants are open for early bird and late night specials. Music begins on the Downtown Plaza stage at 6:30 p.m.
Friday Night Live is produced by the Cloverdale Arts Alliance. Visit online or call 894-4410 for more information.
