Boogaloo Assassins are a mix of contemporary music with the classic style of salsa of the 70’s. And they will be ending night at Playhouse Block Party in Pasadena Playhouse – Stage Theater at the corner of El Molino Avenue and Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena, California. Their presentation is scheduled for 9pm, but the party starts at 12pm this June 9th.
They are a fresh version of salsa music on the west coast with 9 musicians and more people invited. Their influence is Latin Soul, Boogaloo, Salsa, Latin Funk, Guajira, Cha-Cha, Pachanga, Cuban Jazz, and anothers rhythms. You must believe me when I tell you, they can transport you to the old New York or to some part of the Caribbean. Especially when they sing in Spanish and English at the same time.
The Pasadena Playhouse is commemorating three very important moments: the centenary of its foundation, the 90th anniversary of the founding of Playhouse College of Theater Arts and the 80th year of its designation as the official state theater of California. And to celebrate, they are inviting everyone to the FREE Playhouse Block party this Saturday, June 9th.
You can not miss more than twenty presentations in two different stages, a Main Stage and a Kids’ Stage, a “Silent Disco” headphone party for the kids, and so much more. Also you can also make tours of the theater, know who works there and learn how they organize and works. With all the access to the backstage, it promises to be a very interesting evening.
The event will feature different activities from Kidspace Children’s Museum, Armory for the Arts, Metaforyou, MUSE / IQUE, Pasadena Dance Theater, Pasadena Museum of California Art, Pasadena Museum of History, Pasadena Public Library, Pasadena Symphony & POPS, Pasadena Walking Tours, Rogue Artists Ensemble, Shumel Arts Council, Side Street Projects, Sierra Madre Playhouse, Akabeko Project, Surrogate Gallery Projects, and USC Pacific Asia Museum.
