Ottmar Liebert and Luna Negra, who perform what they call “new flamenco,” will be coming to the Coach House on Friday, Feb. 13 and Saturday, Feb 14, for Valentine’s Day weekend.
The band is touring California with new material and can’t wait to show the Coach House audiences what they have planned. Guitarist Ottmar Liebert, known for his new age Spanish guitar, says, “We’ll play some brand new stuff that hasn’t been recorded yet and, of course, we’ll dip into our catalog and play some of the old favorites.”
Liebert’s catalog stretches over 25 years of published music. An old favorite included in the repertoire will be the 1990 song, “Barcelona Nights.”
Members of Luna Negra include bass player Jon Gagan and percussion player Chris Steele. Liebert finds chemistry to be a very important element in his band, he says. “It’s been amazing to have a band together for several years because you get so much tighter. You can start trusting each other.”
The Coach House is the band’s second stop, out of five locations, on their California tour.
“It should be a fun little tour,” Liebert said.
Doors open at 6 p.m. The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $30 and dinner reservations with priority seating are also available.
The Coach House is located at 33157 Camino Capistrano in San Juan Capistrano. For tickets or more information, call 949.496.8930 or go to www.thecoachhouse.com.
