The 25th Annual Summer Series of live music, dinners, cocktails, picnics, dancing, Kid Zone, and fun continues on Saturday, July 22 with Oakland’s own Grammy-winning band: PACIFIC MAMBO ORCHESTRA.
This 2014 Grammy® Award-winning 19-piece Latin Big Band plays Salsa, Mambo, Latin Jazz, and Cha Cha Cha along with a fusion of sounds that incorporate more modern genres. They deliver original music and clever, modern arrangements of hit songs, paving the way to a bold new sound designed to reach the next generation of Big Band listeners.
Get ready to dance! The wooden dance floor will be set on the turf and under the bistro lights to add to the night of fun, and Dance Arts Studio of San Rafael instructors will be there pre-concert to teach you a few mambo moves to keep you moving through the night.

A children’s hands-on art project will be provided by Marin Community Clinics and festival shopping from Good Will Industries’ Georgi & Willow store.
