Are you hungry some more of that free downtown live music? We sure are. Don’t forget that the Levitt AMP Springfield Music Series is an ongoing thing throughout the summer: and tonight is free concert #4 in the series bringing you some of the hottest Latin pop music in the whole entire nation. Tonight is the Latin dance musician – Oro Solido performing for free out on the block! The opener for tonight is Jerry Palacios. Here’s a description of Oro Solido from the Levitt website:
Blending folksy percussion, fast-paced rhythms and catchy chorus melodies, it’s easy for audiences to fall in love with Oro Solido’s infectious merengue grooves. Fronted by charismatic bandleader Raul Acosta, Oro Solido has become one of the most popular outfits to introduce mainstream American audiences to merengue music. Born in the Dominican Republic, but raised in New Jersey, Acosta played bass in the Latin Jazz group Caribe Band, before forming his own path. Comprised entirely of Puerto Rican and Dominican musicians, Oro Solido officially came to life in March 1994. The same year, the group issued their self-titled debut, featuring the smash single “Esta Cache,” that became an immediate hit with the merengue crowd.
Once again it is looking like the weather is going to cooperate and it is going to be another lovely night in the big city for this free outdoor concert. It starts at 6:00 pm with the opener and goes until 8:30 pm. Out on the Y-Block between 4th and 5th streets between Capitol Avenue and the Governor’s Mansion. Find a facebook event right here.
