Twilight Dancing on the Santa Monica Pier – Summertime 2010

Jun 21, 2010 by Lisa Newton

It’s that time of year again; time to put on your dancing shoes.

The Twilight Dance Series on the Santa Monica Pier, which is in its 27th, year, will be starting on July 8th. If I didn’t mention it the concerts on the Santa Monica Pier are Free!

Kicking off the Thursday nights festivities will be Konono No. 1, a band founded over 25 years ago with a definite and unique sound called “Congotronics.”

Intrigued?

Here’s a short clip to hear exactly what I’m referring to when I’m talking about the Konono No. 1 Congotronics sound:

The July 8th, concert is just the first of nine planned concerts, each starting at 7:00pm every Thursday night until September 2nd. After the opening concert, each subsequent concert will feature artists from Italy, Australia, India, New Orleans, with an eclectic mix of jazz, hip-hop, folk, plus a former Rolling Stone and of course, the Beatles.

So be sure to mark your calendars and synchronize it with ours below:
