The Calico Band at Rancho Los Cerritos

Part of the richness of California History can still be experienced at any of the several Ranchos and Adobes that are still maintained throughout the State. Here at Rancho los Cerritos (in Long Beach), and as part of the Arts Council of Long Beach, the Calico Band performed under the giant fig tree that still stands for about a century.

They are fantastic musicians and song writers, inspired by the lore and history of the area, producing a western style bluegrass / folk music sound with a few rock-a-billy under currents.

I painted them while they were performing.  Afterword, the band really took an interest and a small crowd gathered to have a look.  It was a wonderful evening, being there and listening to the group.   Please take a moment to visit their website (https://www.calicotheband.com) and go see them live if you can.  They perform nationally and even internationally! They super nice people, too.
