Marcel Portilla Band

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Peace Center presents the Marcel Portilla Band in a free concert for the community on the TD Stage Thursday, Sept. 27, at 7:30 p.m., in collaboration with the Hispanic Alliance.

The Marcel Portilla Band plays a fusion of new Latin, tropical and reggae music. Hailing from Colombia, Ecuador, Puerto Rico and the United States, they blend sultry Latin rhythms with modern pop tunes, rhythm and blues riffs and quaking rock arrangements into a must-see high energy performance.

Led by South American singer/songwriter Marcel Portilla, the band uses music to spread a message of diversity, love and peace. They perform originals like "Amor Electronico" and "Amarte a Ti" and blend classic dance and club covers from hit artists such as Juanes, Carlos Vives, Oscar de Leon, Marc Anthony and Ricky Martin.

Tickets for the Thursday, Sept. 27, 7:30 p.m. performance by the Marcel Portilla Band are free and must be reserved by calling (864) 467-3000 or (800) 888-7768, in person at the Peace Center Box Office or online at http://www.peace

Tickets are available to Peacekeepers beginning now and will be available to the public on Wednesday, July 18, at 10 a.m. There is a limit of four tickets per household.
