All ages are welcome to this casual get-together and mini-jam session with David Maldonado. His latest work, DAVICAS, explores the roots and branches of the flamenco tree, serving up flamenco rhythms and melodies with a twist coming deep from his flamenco roots and knowledge. DAVICAS is a storytelling event where David shares his soul, passion, and pain that can be heard in each piece on the album, which incorporates a wide array of Flamenco guitars, Classical guitars, and his La Bella Strings, and features an incredible rhythm section.

Come meet David and hear his music, while enjoying light refreshments with fellow flamencos.
And if we go past 8:00 p.m...
who knows what will happen?
