|LOS GU’ACHIS – MUSIC OF THE SOUTHWEST, MEXICO, EARLY CALIFORNIA AND OTHER PLACES|
Los Gu’achis will perform Music of the Southwest, Mexico, Early California and Other Places in the Helen Putnam Community Room at the Petaluma Library on Saturday, October 26, at 2:00. The program is being presented as part of Petaluma’s El Dia de los Muertos.
Los Gu’achis, who played for a standing-room-only audience at the Petaluma Library last year, return for another concert of their lively instrumental music of the Southwest, Mexico, Early California and other places. The Petaluma-based quartet has been busier than usual over the past year. Their “fall/winter 2012 tour” took them to six branches of the Sonoma County Library system, as well as restaurants, art galleries, supermarkets, festivals and store openings.
A recent story about Los Gu’achis in the Press Democrat highlighted their volunteer work at local senior centers, where they play their music to the delight of elders in the programs. “My seniors just love them,” said Pat Vachini, who runs the senior day program on Howard Street. “They are magic. You look around the room and every single one of them is tapping their feet.” Craig Mason, who runs the senior lunch program on Novak Drive, said, “It’s not every day you have a group of musicians who can mo¬tivate seniors in their 80s and 90s to get up and dance. They are an enlivening group.”
Los Gu’achis includes Barbara Arhon (violin), Steve Della Maggiora (accordion and lead guitar), Chris Samson (rhythm guitar) and Tracy Grisman (bass). Visit www.losguachis.com for more information about the group.
The Friends of the Petaluma Library are sponsoring the performance by Los Gu’achis. The public is invited to attend free of charge.
