Incendio plays at concerts in the park this Thursday
—On August 4 Incendio will play at Paso Robles Concets in the Park with food provided by Odyssey World Cafe.
Incendio, simply put, is instrumental world music. The primary “voice” of the band is the guitar, but to say the music of Incendio is solely guitar music would be an oversimplification. The guitar is certainly present, but other instruments such as the mandolin, bouzouki, violin, Celtic harp, piano, bass, synthesizer and various ethnic percussion instruments play a huge role in the ensemble’s sound.
2016 Paso Robles Concerts in the Park are Thursdays at 5:30 p.m.
The free concert series, presented by the City of Paso Robles in partnership with the Paso Robles REC Foundation, will happen every Thursday evening between June 16 and August 18. Wine by J Lohr, Firestone beer on tap, soda, bottled water and food from a different local restaurant will be available for purchase during each show.
Concert goers are encouraged to bring their blankets, lawn chairs and picnic baskets for this annual summer tradition.
The Paso Robles City Park is undergoing renovation this season with improvements to the park including a new playground, new landscaping, an updated entry plaza from 12th Street, and a renovated gazebo and horseshoe pit.
For the first time this season, Central Coast Live Radio will be broadcasting the concerts from City Park every Thursday evening. Those who can’t attend the shows can listen at CentralCoastLIVE.com or via Central Coast Live’s free mobile app.
Donations collected during Concerts in the Park through the Paso Robles REC Foundation support the City of Paso Robles Youth Scholarship fund. This scholarship program provides assistance for children who wish to participate in the city’s recreation programs but may not be able to afford the registration fees.

July 21: Ry Bradley
Ry Bradley is an award-winning entertainer and youth leadership advocate who brings his dynamic stage presence and rockin’ country sound with him as he makes positive changes in young peoples’ lives.
Known for being both a songwriter and a live-wire entertainer, Ry’s songs caught the attention of a master class of songwriters such as Victoria Shaw, Radney Foster, Doug Johnson, and blues superstar Keb Mo. These collaborations have pushed Ry into creating his own original rockin’ sound. Ry and his band are focused on great songs and great shows as they bring their music to new audiences.

Route 66 is a classic Rock and Roll Band from the Central Coast. Their play list goes from Elvis to Van Morrison, to the Eagles to Creedence, to the Beatles to the Stones and more.
July 7: Ricky Montijo and the Mojitos
Blending rock, classic soul, latin n reggae styles with his husky baritone bluesy voice, Ricky Montijo and the Mojitos have a style that is all their own.
June 30: Monte Mills
Mills is one of the last of the yodeling cowboys. A farrier and auctioneer by trade, he’s the “real deal.” But he’s more than just a singing cowboy, he’s part of life around these parts. He’s been instrumental in keeping traditional western swing country music alive introducing it to thousands of Cal Poly students and Central Coast residents each year.
June 23: The Small Kicks
The Small Kicks pack their shows with original songs inspired by Paso, life experiences, and of course love, but also mix in the occasional crowd favorites that pay tribute to their musical influences.
June 16 Truth about Seafood
With a modern rock feel the band is influenced by a variety of groups from the Beatles, Tom Petty, Foo Fighters and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their sets often feature songs from Genesis, Hall and Oates and Tom Petty with their own hard rock infusion. Known throughout the Central Coast as local favorites, the band is perhaps most notably recognized for opening for the Stone Temple Pilots during their Avila Beach show. According to band members what happens in between songs are “not to miss” events as well. Past performances have featured dancing dogs, earthworm races, wedding proposals, women’s arm wrestling, and levitating ponies.
