8/20—Gin Creek
Gin Creek is one of Seattle’s busiest bands, playing regularly at leading music venues across Western Washington. Their music is rooted in the blues but draws on soul, swing, and New Orleans R&B, and their ability to play in a wide variety of rhythms makes them a favorite of dancers. They are happy to return to The Madison Park Summer Concert series.

Puerto Rico Saturday Night

MARCH 22, 2013 | EDITOR

Musical group Hijos de Agueybaná performs its new album Saturday night at the MLK Community Center. The Puerto Rican musicians and dancers perform in a style called “Bomba,” one of the island’s main genres that includes cultural influences from West Africa, Spain, and other Caribbean islands. Bomba is described as a dialogue between dancer and drummer and is a dance of elegance and deliberate steps.
