El Paseo Arts Foundation is delighted to partner with Lobo Del Mar to bring a brand new show to South Padre Island.

At the nightclub at 5908 Padre Blvd. on South Padre Island, the “End of Year Concert SPI” is set for Friday, Dec. 21.

“Lobo Del Mar is an all-family music and dance ensemble,” states a press release from JoAnn Evans of the El Paseo Arts Foundation.

The performance includes Celtic music, complete with bagpipes, bluegrass and Flamenco fusion, Irish step dancing, Mexican music, South Pacific Island tunes accompanied by Polynesian dances, and Middle Eastern-inspired medleys with belly dancing.

“One of the most unusual features of this band is its sheer size,” the El Paseo Arts Foundation press release states. “Four generations of musicians and dancers have gathered steps, rhythms and melodies from around and beyond North America, and named themselves Lobo del Mar — Spanish for ‘Sea Wolf,’ the clan’s boat.

“Band members describe how they developed a repertoire of world music and dance this way: ‘If we have an interest in a certain type of music or dance, chances are one of us will study and learn it; then we incorporate it into our shows. We really just love to play music and have a fun time trying new things...’”

The show is expected to be visually colorful. The dancers take the stage in costumes of the cultures represented by the music and dancing.

“The entire ensemble looks like they are having so much fun on stage that you can’t help but share in their excitement,” the press release said. “The intimate, night club setting, will provide the audience with a very personal experience of the performance.”

Doors open for the performance at 6 p.m., and the two-hour show begins at 7 p.m.

A cash bar will be available for patrons.

All tickets for this special event are priced at $30 per person. Tickets may be purchased at Paragraphs Book Store, Lobo Del Mar Café, or online at www.elpaseoarts.org. As this is a special event, El Paseo Season Tickets or Sponsor tickets may not be used.

Seating is limited.
