City’s Summer Concert Series to Heat Up with Los Pinguos’ Latin Spice

Free weekly music at Chase Palm Park begins June 28

It’s one of Santa Barbara’s best summer traditions: the city’s free summer concert series from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Thursdays at Chase Palm Park!

Every year, more than 5,000 fans dust off their dancing shoes, pack up a picnic dinner, and join friends and family to celebrate summer with free music concerts in Santa Barbara’s beautiful Chase Palm Park, located on Cabrillo Boulevard along the gorgeous Santa Barbara waterfront.

This season will kick off at 6 p.m. June 28 with Los Pinquos from Buenos Aires, Argentina. They will perform an exciting mixture of Latin rhythms, with Spanish guitars, a Cuban Tres, Peruvian Cajón and harmonizing vocals. Vivacious and infectious, the sound of Los Pinguos has claimed fans worldwide, from Buenos Aires to the streets of Los Angeles.

Concertgoers are reminded to bring lawn chairs, blankets and a picnic, keeping in mind that blanket or chair setup will not be permitted before noon on the day of the concert. While dogs are welcome on leashes, alcoholic beverages are not permitted in the park.

Future concerts run the gamut from Cajun to Caribbean, rock to gypsy jazz. Click here or a complete concert schedule.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
