Rumba Kings will perform at the Kirkland Performance Center on Aug. 25.

The show features mostly instrumental nylon-guitar driven music, influenced by such artists as Yanni and The Gipsy Kings.

“If it isn’t beautiful, it doesn’t make the cut,” said lead guitarists and co-founder George Stevens in a press release. “We want to put on a show that really moves people, that gives them a feeling they can’t get anywhere else.”

Co-founder and bassist Johnny Bacolas added, “We wanted to create a show that we would love to sit through every song and get chills watching and listening to. That hasn’t happened to me in a long time. I feel we accomplished this with this show. Two words to describe our show and music would be ‘passionate’ and ‘beautiful.’”

Rumba Kings will perform two 45-minute sets, with a 15-minute intermission in between sets. Doors open at 7 p.m., with the all-ages show beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Snacks, beer and wine will be sold in the lobby.
