For Immediate Release: First Wednesdays Music Series Returns with a New Season!


Escondido, California — :

Experience the power of performance at First Wednesdays music series, a free community concert series that happens the first Wednesday of every month from September through June.

The first First Wednesdays brings Felix y Los Gatos on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 starting at 6pm.

Formed in 2004, Felix y Los Gatos is a nationally touring act with their roots planted firmly in the desert Southwest.

With 13+ years of stage experience, the Gato’s have an improvisational style that is uniquely their own. Their sound is crafted through the cultural influences of Zydeco, Tex-Mex, Blues, and Gypsy/Jazz (Think Django Reinhardt), Swing, a dash of Outlaw country, and the sometimes mystical, spiritual realm of Santana style Latino soul style playing.

The band is comprised of Felix Peralta (aka: Gato Malo) on vocals and guitar, D.B. Gomez on button accordion, Melvin “The Honey” Crisp on drums, and Norteño Tim on bass.

Together, they make up one of the most musically diverse and entertaining acts of the desert Southwest.

Tickets to the show are FREE and are handed out on a first-come, first-seated basis as you enter the venue. Doors open one hour prior to show time, and this year’s shows will be held in the Center’s Concert Hall starting at 6pm.

If you’d like to beat the line, reserved seats are also available for $12 ($10 for Center Members) and can be purchased below. Reserved seats must be purchased a minimum of 24 hours in advance.
