Venue: Hotel Congress
Start Time: 8:00pm

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Carlos Arzate will not be able to perform tonight. All other Sonoran Restaurant Week festivities will continue as planned, and we hope to see you there!

Arizona Arts Live & Club Congress are proud to present two songwriters indispensable to the Tucson sound. Join us for troubadour and poet Salvador Duran’s weekly set on the plaza, followed by a special performance: the undismissable presence of Carlos Arzate joined by some extraordinary friends. 

The heart-warming and political poignancy of Ziggy Marley and Michael Franti, with a southwestern bent.

Come on down to the Club Congress plaza for Sonoran Restaurant week’s kickoff fundraising bash with Arizona Arts Live, Agave Heritage Festival, and Hotel Congress followed by a performance by some of the Old Pueblo’s most beloved musicians. Whether you join us for the VIP launch party in the tasting room, dinner at the cup, the music of Salvador Duran, or Carlos Arzate & Friends headlining performance, there’s something at the Sonoran Restaurant kickoff party for everyone. 

Tucson native Carlos Arzate has been a standout member of the Arizona music community since the 90’s, first known for leading bands like Innisfail and American Android with his huge voice. While those bands were known for their loud, confrontational sound and message, he nurtured a deep love of soul, folk, Norteno, and what is broadly called Americana, influences that finally found a home in his solo project, Carlos Arzate and The Kind Souls. The voice is still huge, but these songs also make space for a quiet, yearning, and at times sweet side, passionate stories about social inequity, border realities, family, struggle, and triumph.
