Please join us this evening for the second concert of our 26th Annual FREE Concert Series in City Park at the Band Shell on Ferril Lake from 6-8pm, rain or shine. Presented by Cornerstone Apartment Communities and Frontier Airlines, tonight's concert features Los Bohemios.
Los Bohemios is an acoustic ensemble composed of some of the best musicians in Colorado. They play Cuban Son, Salsa, and Boleros (ballads in Spanish with Afro-Cuban rhythms). They also cover other Latin styles such as Bossa Nova, Latin Rock, Latin Jazz and even Mexican Mariachi repertoire. Los Bohemios feature Ricardo Peņa on vocals and guitar or requinto, Amy Biondo on vocals and hand percussion, Ed Edwards on guitar and vocals, Mark Diamond on upright bass, and Jose Espino on congas and bongos. They feature great 3-part harmony, Spanish guitars, acoustic bass and Latin percussion to create danceable salsa rhythms in the style of Buena Vista Social Club or Gloria Estefan, and romantic ballads in the style of Los Panchos.
