KevLex kicks off pop culture series at L’Auberge amphitheater

Violin and classical guitar duo KevLex opened the Pop Culture series in the L’Auberge Amphitheater on April 4. Crowds gathered in lawn chairs and on the amphitheater steps to enjoy Renaissance, classical, and traditional music with a youthful spin.

Pop entertainment events, sponsored by the Del Mar Village Association, will continue every Saturday evening in the L’Auberge Amphitheater from 5-7 p.m. through May 30. Upcoming performances will feature Kizomba (Saturday, April 18), a popular genre of dance and music originating in Angola. It has emerged as a more modern music style with a sensual touch mixed with African rhythm and compas music from the French Caribbean Islands.

On April 25, the Jazz Pigs will share their high-energy approach to Mainstream and Latin jazz. Formed by vibraphonist and native San Diegan Carlos X. Pena in 1991, the Jazz Pigs have entertained locally and at Jazz festivals abroad.

The events are free, and all are welcome to bring a picnic basket, beach chairs or a blanket and enjoy the line up of talented performers. For information, visit
