On Saturday, April 10, 2010 from 1PM – 4PM, at the DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun, there will be an outdoor concert celebrating the CD release of “The Bluest Sky” by Spanish-guitarist Domingo DeGrazia and violinist Beth Daunis.
This amazing Tucson duo has created a collection of diverse and captivating songs, from haunting Celtic melodies to spicy Latin rhythms performed with passion and prowess.
Enjoy the performance, meet the musicians, and stroll through the Gallery in the Sun to see the art and architecture of Domingo’s father, the late Ted DeGrazia.
As part of Tohono Chul Park’s 2009 Fall Concert Series, the DeGrazia Guitar Band performed for Tucsonans on a beautiful fall evening last night. The concert area was covered by a canopy of slightly illuminated trees, and it seemed as though the crickets were brought in to compliment the atmosphere. They too made wonderul music in between songs.
Domingo DeGrazia, and the DeGrazia Spanish Guitar Band were outstanding. They all have great passion for their music and the crowd loved it. We will be back to see them play again and you can too, as their local performance schedule is listed on their site. Domingo’s Spanish, Latin and Flamenco guitar style is fantastic. He is also a very good story teller, and we enjoyed the story of how the band came to know Violinist, Beth Daunis. She makes beautiful empassioned music, dancing with the violin as she plays. The crowd really loved it. We know we did.
One of our favorite parts of the concert was Domingo talking about his father, and visiting the DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun each year and his father’s gravesite where he composes a song. He played one of those songs he wrote as a tribute to his father, Ted DeGrazia. He would have loved to hear him last night, and we think he did.
