Santa Mamba will perform a free concert at the Killington Resort’s K-1 Base Area on Saturday, Aug. 2 from 3:30 to 6 p.m. The free concert is part of the Town of Killington’s Cooler in the Mountains summer concert series, presented by Long Trail Brewing Co.
Santa Mamba is best described as a mix-up of musical styles and personalities. Rock, salsa, reggaeton, funk, bachata, disco, bolero… all these elements can be found in Santa Mamba’s Latin Rock sounds. While many bands that fall under the broad classification of “Latin” consist of musicians with a shared ethnic heritage, Santa Mamba’s story is radically different. Formed in the small state of Rhode Island, members of the band come from diverse backgrounds, from small American towns to Latin American nations. The members have little in common, except for the fact that each and every one of them was born with a passion for music. Between the band’s 2012 studio album “Mother Culture” and their high energy shows, they have gained a loyal multicultural following throughout the country and beyond.
Cooler in the Mountains performances are scheduled every Saturday afternoon, through Aug. 30. The concerts are free and guests are encouraged to bring lawn blankets and chairs to enjoy the scenic views. The events also feature specialty Long Trail beer tastings along with a BBQ at Killington Resort’s Roaring Brook Umbrella Bars, lawn games and outdoor fun. All in attendance will have the chance to win a 2014-2015 Killington Season Pass, which will be given away at the conclusion of the concert series. The next concert on August 9 features Entrain.
The Cooler in the Mountains summer concert series is produced by the Town of Killington, presented by Long Trail Brewing, and hosted at Killington Resort. Key sponsors of the series include Casella Waste Management, Farrell Distributing, and Catamount Radio.
