Come enjoy the rock/soul and reggae/blues of Soul Sauce on Sunday, August 7th at Rotary Centennial Park, located at 2625 South College Drive. This is the fifth concert of this summer’s Concerts in the Park Series hosted by the Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department and People for Leisure and Youth (PLAY), Inc.

Chet “CT” Hogoboom and Tommy Lee Nunes, a San Luis Obispo-based singer/songwriter duo, had started work on a new album of original material and were trying to find the right musicians to play on it. Looking for a live “in the studio” sound they tried different combinations of players until they rehearsed with Keenan Michael Vallone on drums and Bruce Sorensen on bass. This combination clicked so well and so quickly, not only did they record the new album “Soul Sauce” but started a new band of the same name. With four different singers, lead vocals are passed around and harmonies abound.

Concerts in the Park are free, fun, and family-friendly. Invite family and friends, and bring lawn chairs, throw blankets, and snacks. Concert times are 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. every Sunday through mid-September.
