Tha Dirt Feelin brings its unique blend of hip hop and rock ‘n’ roll music to Picnic in the Park at 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 1.
The band — Colin Borges, left, rhythm guitar, flute and vocals; Chris Hunt, bass; Johnny Blaze, drums; Marque Cass, lead vocals; Martin Castillo, percussion and vocals; and Evan Daly, lead guitar and vocals — brings a positive and upbeat blend of soulful singing, thoughtful raps and music with a solid dance beat, ranging from jazz to funk to rock.
Tha Dirt Feelin has played Picnic Day, Davis Music Fest and Earth Day. Music starts at 5 pm and is sponsored and funded by our community partner, Davis Food Co-op. The Market is open 4:30 to 8:30 p.m., and overflowing with spring produce — asparagus, greens, lettuces, snap peas, avocados, kiwis and strawberries — plus local eggs, honey, wine, beef and lamb fill the market, with crafts at the north end.
Picnic in the Park’s International Food Faire offers a wide array of dinner choices from El Mariachi Taqueria, Raja’s Tandoor, Kathmandu Kitchen, Thai Recipes, and East West Gourmet. Other food vendors include: The Buckhorn, Ciocolat, Farmer’s Kitchen, Davis Creamery, Fat Face, The Hotdogger, Monticello Seasonal Cuisine, Original’s Steve’s Pizza, Upper Crust Bakery, Davis Bread & Desserts, OctoberFeast Bakery, Bare Juices, and Kettlepop. Or bring your own picnic. Davis Soroptimists bring their new Sudwerk beer cart and offer local beer and wine to raise money for local charities.
