The Valencia Jazz & Blues Concert Series returns to Valencia for its 20th year with a “Latin Dance Party” themed opening night this Friday, featuring The Delgado Brothers.

This free summer concert series runs every Friday night through Aug. 2 and features various national and international musicians with family-friendly activities, food vendors, such as Salt Creek Grille and Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que, as well as drink vendor Wolf Creek Brewery.

This week’s band, The Delgado Brothers, is a group of brothers who have been making music for over 45 years. The group also won the 2016 International Blues Challenge.

D’Wilfri Dance & Entertainment’s Latin dance troupe is also expected to perform, followed by an informal dance instruction with the audience.

“We want to throw a huge Latin dance party to open our 20th anniversary celebration,” Barbara Myler, owner and producer of the concert series, said in a prepared statement Wednesday. “Welcoming back The Delgado Brothers’ exciting Latin jazz and blues along with the D’Wilfri Dance troupe is the perfect combination.”

The Valencia Jazz & Blues Concert Series, which is free to attend, is scheduled 7 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. every Friday night June 14 through Aug. 2 at the Westfield Valencia Town Center located at 24250 Town Center Drive. Although you can bring your own chairs, outside food and beverages will not be allowed.
