San Fermin is playing at The Park Theatre tonight and it’ll be quite the show.
No, there won’t be any ‘Running of the Bulls’ happening (San Fermin is the town in Spain where that happens), but the music may come close to giving you that kind of rush.
The Brooklyn-based group relies on its percussion, its jazzy alternative rock style (featuring a raspy, rustic baritone sax), and its eight members rocking in unison to deliver an outstanding show.
The music is the brainchild of Ellis Ludwig-Leone who doesn’t actually lend his voice to his music. He’s the composer, the arranger. He’s content to stand on the side and manipulate his synths while watching his two lead singers roll out the emotion in the vocals.
I had the pleasure of meeting the group last summer at the Winnipeg Folk Festival where they played on the stage I volunteered on. Talk about down-to-earth. The nicest group of musicians you’ll ever meet, and that’s what stood out to me. Their willingness to hang out, chat, and have a good time.
They’re on tour in support of their third studio album, Belong, which they released April 7 (listen on Spotify below).
So come out to The Park Theatre tonight and support a great group of musicians.
There are a few tickets left. Hope to see you there.
p.s. Low Roar is opening. A mellow, refreshing electronic artist from Iceland.
