On Thursday, August 14th, the Santa Monica Pier hosts La Santa Cecilia. I’ll be honest with you … before seeing them scheduled as a featured artist, I knew nothing about them. After snooping the internet a little, I come to find out that they recently won a Grammy Award for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album in 2014. Hmm … maybe this is a band I should check out. lol.

This Los Angeles based band has been releasing albums since 2009, and their music fuses Latin elements like cumbia, bossa nova, bolero, etc. with, rock, jazz and ska. If there’s one thing that I’m looking forward to, it’s getting my “first taste” of this band at the pier. My only regret will be that I learned French instead of Spanish back in high school.

Also performing on the pier, opening for La Santa Cecilia, is Sergio Mendoza Y La Orkesta; “a mambo big-band like you’ve never experienced.” I’m excited to see how big the band will be for this performance (I’ve read that the orchestra can stretch to 19 pieces), but I’m sure the pier will be dancing to their sweet mambo and cumbia sounds.
