THE FREE SUMMER CONCERT SERIES, SPONSORED BY INTEL, IS BACK!
Baby, it’s hot outside, but it’s cool at the CCA! Enjoy our air conditioning and start the weekend with music on the Main Stage at Chandler Center for the Arts. Rather experience our Summer Series from home? Join us for a live stream of this performance.
Cisco & The Racecars is all about bluegrass, folk, and old-time Americana music. Their energetic style, diverse arrangements and instrumentation create a unique blend of old and new. Under the management and vision of Francisco Briseno, Cisco & The Racecars has taken its place as one of the premier bluegrass bands in the Southwest.
The band is composed of Francisco Briseno on banjo, Mark Hickler on guitar, Giselle Lee on fiddle, Chester Carmer on mandolin, Katie Carmer on cello, and Joelle Tambe-Ebot on bass. Francisco, an Arizona State Banjo Champion, has gathered his band members over many years and together they’ve formed a highly unique and authentic sound. Although their roots are bluegrass, and they remain true to that tradition, they also play popular, country, and old-time music.
In addition to performing, Cisco & the Racecars mentors the young players of the Jam Pak Blues ‘N’ Grass Neighborhood Band, a local after-school music program that gave several of the band’s members their start. Jam Pak is a Chandler arts organization in the heart of the Galveston Neighborhood, organized with love by the amazing Anni Beach. Anni was recently recognized as one of the Women of Chandler 2022 in Chandler Lifestyle magazine.
