SUNDAY, JULY 31, 2022: Soulful SAMBA with BOCA DO RIO

Soulful & Funky Samba on the Oakland Waterfront!

Originally hailing from the San Francisco Mission and led by singer/songwriter KEVIN WELCH and percussionist ALEX CALATAYUD, Boca do Rio is a Brazilian-American soulful-samba-funk explosion! Born of the mixing of waters of Brazil and the San Francisco Bay, Boca do Rio has created engaging samba – music that developed through the rhythm of living and working between the Americas. After a decade performing all original material during the heyday of San Francisco’s live music scene, Boca do Rio has evolved into a multi-layered band with a sound that is fluid and edgy, adaptable and free.

NOTE: This show is a BENEFIT CONCERT for Boca do Rio's front man, KEVIN WELCH, whose home and land were burned to the ground in the June 28, 2022 wildfire that ripped through the North San Juan mountain above the Yuba river near Grass Valley, CA. ALL PROCEEDS from this uplifting concert will go to Kevin and his restoration efforts.
