Event Navigation

Join us on the expanded, updated Playground Bar & Lounge ROOFTOP on Friday, June 8th from 6:00 p.m to 9:00 p.m. for a night of Latin music from local all-stars SANTA PACHITA LIVE–NO COVER!

Be sure to get here early to take advantage of our Happy Hour specials from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., featuring $2 off wells and $1 off wine & drafts AND for a great seat on the newly remodeled Playground rooftop! Renovated, yet still featuring those great views of downtown’s skyline, our famous sunsets & mountain ranges.

Fans of Buena Vista Social Club, Jarabe de Palo and Manu Chao will love Santa Pachita’s horn-infused blend of Rumba, Salsa, Ska, Cumbia & Bolero rhythms & vibes.

Santa Pachita is a 9-piece Tucson band that has been playing together since 2012. Guitarist, Miguel Reyes, and bass player, Victor Cruz, started the band after working together on other musical projects. They brought in talented musicians that have a variety of different musical backgrounds. The result is a danceable fusion of ska, cumbia, and rumba-salsa. The congas, flute, and trumpet add depth to the energetic music that is influenced by bands like Manu Chao.

The focus of the band is to explore and fuse rhythms like rumba, salsa and son and create an interactive musical experience for the audience.
