At Santa Ana’s Monthly Art Walk, Beautiful Pieces of Art Are On Display and Talented Musicians Can be Heard!
If you live in the Los Angeles area and are looking for something fun and new to do on a Saturday night, I highly recommend checking out the Santa Ana Art Walk located in downtown Santa Ana. It can be found on the 2nd Street Promenade from Broadway Avenue to Spurgeon Street. This Art Walk takes place on the first Saturday of every month from 7:00-10:00pm and the admission is free.
Not only is there incredible art to discover and great shopping, there is also awesome live entertainment throughout the night as well.
While I do enjoy viewing art, I went mainly for the music this past Saturday night. My friends and rockin’ 9 piece band Red Pony Clock were there and played for an hour in the middle of all the action. Yes, I said that right, there are a whopping 9 members in this eclectic band.
From the sun-kissed shores of San Diego, CA comes Red Pony Clock, an ever changing musical collection with a great love of jubilant horn arrangements, effervescent vocal harmonies, and confessional song-writing. Primarily a recording project based on the songs of Gabe Saucedo, the live Red Pony Clock lineup can often be in the double digits, with members switching back and forth between a wide variety of non-traditional instruments, such as trombone, banjo, accordion, & vibraphone. These guys will pretty much try to work with whatever they can get their hands on. The same goes for their song-writing, which has been known to take from such diverse influences as mariachi, disco, country, jazz, & R&B.
At first listen, the density of Red Pony Clock’s music can be overwhelming, even confusing but give it time. These talented musicians are anything but boring to watch perform. They really look like they are having fun and doing exactly what they love to do. Who doesn’t love seeing that?!
