In celebration of “The Apache Collection,” more than 24 original Ted DeGrazia paintings on display throughout the 2015-16 season at the Superstition Mountain Museum’s exhibit gallery, the museum will host a free concert by Mr. DeGrazia’s youngest son, Domingo DeGrazia, and his Spanish Guitar Band on Friday, Oct. 23.

The concert will be performed in the museum amphitheater at 4 p.m. It will mark the band’s third performance at the museum. The previous two concerts by the group garnered rave reviews and many requests for the band’s return, according to a press release.

Domingo DeGrazia plays lead guitar, blending Spanish guitar passion with the flair of Flamenco music. His music couples dynamic rhythms with Latin, salsa and rock drum beats. Violinist Beth Daunis brings exotic and soulful violin to the mix, while Mark Brugler and Rick Skowron play bass and acoustic guitar.

Domingo DeGrazia and his band have performed all over Arizona, including the Phoenix Botanical Gardens in Phoenix and Boyce-Thompson Arboretum in Superior. A lawyer by profession, the guitarist’s chosen artistic outlet is music which he both plays and composes, like his father before him.

Domingo DeGrazia, solo and with his band, has recorded several CDs, some of which will be available for purchase after the concert. To hear the music of Domingo and his band, visit his website at www.degraziamusic.com.

Superstition Mountain Museum is at 4087 N. Apache Trail (Highway 88). For more information, visit its website or call 480-983-4888.
