The Eclectic Music Festival and Arts Crawl returns for its eleventh year on Saturday, April 27 with Grammy-nominated Gin Blossoms headlining the Eclectic at the Eclectic Stage. Their fusion of melodic rock, pop, folk and country elements has helped pave the way for the modern Rock of today.
Gin Blossoms hits have crossed over in five different formats, taking the airwaves by siege, and held the MTV playlist captive for most of the 90s. Boasting record sales of over 10 million, the band continues to burn up the road performing over 120 tour dates per year.
“We are thrilled to have The Gin Blossoms headline The Eclectic,” said Laurie Wheeler, president of the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce. “South Pasadena is a multicultural and multigenerational community and the band’s music reflects the spirit of the city. We’re very excited that their energetic live shows will be part of our festival, which is free and open to the public.”
Produced by the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with DeepMix Entertainment as well as the City of South Pasadena, The Eclectic is a collaboration with local organizations including Friends of the South Pasadena Library, South Pasadena Music Center & Conservatory, and SPARC – South Pasadena Arts Council. Donations to The Eclectic Friends of the Arts in South Pasadena, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, will help keep the festival free.
