Music in the Park series starts June 30 with Afro-Latin funk

The first free concert in the Music in the Park summer series at William Curtis Park will be from 6 to 8 p.m. June 30, featuring the Afro-Latin funk sounds of Sang Matiz.

The band has enlivened audiences for more than eight years with original compositions and covers that fuse high-energy World and Afro-Latin beats with contemporary rhythms such as pop, jazz and funk.

The combination of styles weaves catchy, syncopated melodies with flamenco-style finger picking.

This is a great way to relax with family, friends and neighbors on the last Sunday of the month. With a blanket and picnic basket, you can enjoy the music in a wonderful outdoor setting. There will be at least one food truck for each event – Kado’s Asian Grill on June 30.

Mr. Cooper will get the evening started and entertain the young at heart between sets.

Music in the Park concerts, hosted by SCNA, are held annually the last Sundays of June, July and August. Series sponsors are Cook Realty, SMUD and City Councilmember Jay Schenirer, who will again dish out Gunther’s Ice Cream throughout the evening.

The other performers in the concert series will be Dr. Rock and The Stuff on July 28; and On Air on Aug. 25, following Curtis Fest.
