San Diego County CA— The Peter Pupping Band will take the stage to play a variety of exciting Latin-inspired music this Sunday at the Visitor Center Theater at Mission Trails Regional Park. Show begins at 3:00pm Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor’s Center, 1 Father Junipero Serra Trail.
The set will feature a blend of musical genres, including flamenco, jazz, Spanish guitar, Latin Jazz, Brazilian music and more from the group’s four albums. The band was well received during its last concert in the park, where it received the venue’s first ever standing ovation from the entire audience.
Formed in 1996 in Encinitas, the Peter Pupping Band has established itself as a fixture of the San Diego music scene. After guitarists Peter Pupping and William Wilson received an overwhelming positive response to a planned one-time concert in 1996, they were joined by a percussionist and bass player to form the Peter Pupping Quartet. The quartet has since grown to a full six-piece band, now including Kevin Koch on the drums and Allan Phillips on keyboard.
The group released its first album, entitled Samba Nights, in 1996. Their sophomore album Embarcadero was released in 1998. The band continued a heavy touring schedule in the San Diego region for another ten years before releasing its next album, Sea Journey, which was nominated for Best World Music Album at the San Diego Music Awards. The band released its most recent album, Café Pacifico, in 2012.
The concert is part of the Park’s free concert series, designed to showcase Mission Trails Regional Park as San Diego’s premiere educational and recreational resources. Admission is free. More information about the free concert series at Mission Trails Regional Park, can be found at www.mtrp.org.
