Escondido CA— The California Center for the Arts, Escondido continues the Levitt AMP Escondido Music Series on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 4pm-7pm!
Headlining the next festival is La Patronal, who will be performing at 5:30pm with the opener, Euphoria Brass Band starting everything off at 4pm!
La Patronal is a unique brass band from Lima, Peru. Rooted in the tradition of ‘fiestas populares’ or town fairs common in rural villages across Latin America, La Patronal honors these gatherings that celebrate tradition through fireworks, dancing, and religious images.
Euphoria Brass Band is a San Diego based musical collective that serves up a contemporary mix of old school New Orleans traditional brass band jazz, funky street beats and new school edginess with a West Coast feeling. Embracing the exciting spirit of improvisation with a hard funk edge, Euphoria Brass Band has become known for their incendiary high energy shows, guaranteed to get a crowd smiling, dancing and having a good time.
The Center was recently awarded the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Award to help transform their underused public spaces through the power of free, live music. While the program has been transforming cities across the nation since 2015, Escondido is the first city in California to be granted an award.
