DeGrazia Spanish Guitar Band
March 5, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm UTC+0
Saturday, March 5th, the Sea Of Glass—Center For The Arts presents the DeGrazia Spanish Guitar Band! Creativity and artistry run deep in the veins of the band’s lead, On Domingo DeGrazia, son of renowned and beloved Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia.
Much will be made of Domingo’s paternal lineage, but the most that can truly be said about Ted DeGrazia’s influence on his youngest son is that Ted instilled within Domingo an astounding love for all that life has to offer. Domingo has demonstrated this enthusiasm for life from an early age, from teaching himself guitar at the age of 13 to receiving his pilot’s license a mere four years later. In addition to writing and performing his own distinctive blend of Spanish and Classical guitar music, Domingo has earned bachelor’s degrees in Aerospace and Aeronautical Science as well as a Juris Doctorate in Law. Experience is the muse of great art, and it is Domingo DeGrazia’s rich body of experience that provides his music the excitement and emotion that separates it from the rest.
Domingo’s latest musical project is the DeGrazia Spanish Guitar Band. Spanish guitar, very difficult to master, is also the most melodious and sweet sounding among all types of guitars. Domingo plays lead guitar, blending Spanish guitar passion with the flair of Flamenco music. His music couples dynamic rhythms with vibrant Latin, Salsa and rock drum beats.
Violinist Beth Daunis brings exotic and soulful violin to the mix. Beth has been playing the violin for 23 years and trained under the tutelage of renowned soloist and chamber musician Diane Pascal. Ms. Daunis draws from her diverse musical background and profound life experience to create a unique sound, infused with her personal brand of magic.
Bassist Mark Brugler toured internationally as a musician and was Assistant Director for Continental Singers and Orchestra’s Canadian tour. Mark has been composing original music for over three decades and was commissioned by Tucson Parks and Recreation in 2008 to create original music for Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and again this year for an upcoming production of Much Ado About Nothing.
Guitarist Rick Skowron has spent his life in Tucson and has made music a part of it. Growing up with the guitar, he involved himself in various music styles ranging from school jazz band to a world touring metal band.
