The Delgado Brothers Band are, Joey Delgado on guitars and vocals, Steve Delgado on drums and vocals, Bobbie Delgado on bass, with David B. Kelly on keyboards.

As the afternoon sun filtered through the trees of Wrightwood Community Plaza Thursday, July 27, 2023, the third installment of Wrightwood’s “Music In The Pines” proudly presented the return of “The Delgado Brothers Band” to the delight of many familiar Wrightwood Fans. Claudia Campbell greeted her fellow concertgoers with the announcement of an opportunity drawing for an acoustic guitar and guitar lesson giveaway, with the winner to be announced at the next and final “Music In The Pines” concert at 6:00 pm Thursday, August 10, 2023. All donations will go towards securing the bands and essentials to keep the concert series entertaining the community and its guests in years to come.

The afternoon sun filters through the trees as the Delgado Brothers Band returns to Wrightwood to perform their “Roots Rock” style of music at “Music in the Pines.”

Providing smooth rock and classy popular Latin styles of music for three generations, The Delgado Brothers Band has taken their “Roots Rock” to the far reaches of Southern California and beyond. Enjoying a delicious street taco from the Mexico Lindo outdoor kitchen, bass-playing brother Bob Delgado mentioned the Blues Cruise gig they played, which took them to the West Indies. “We love playing Wrightwood!” he exclaimed, “The people are so nice up here!” With brothers Joey on guitar and vocals and Steve on drums also singing, the group is well balanced with David B. Kelly on keyboards, rounding out their sound with brother Bob on Bass.

Wrightwood honorary mayor Tina King and the Wrightwood Chamber of Commerce “Chamber Girls” (volunteers) present the Opportunity Drawing prizes including an acoustic guitar starter kit and lesson.

With a worldly repertoire of classic hit songs spanning generations of genres, The Delgado Brother Band also demonstrated their songwriting prowess with numbers like “Man Without A Plan,” an upbeat observation of the environment and where it is headed, and “Live For Today” a lively tune with a comforting beat written by drummer Steve Delgado. The mixed audience of a few hundred friends and neighbors armed with lawn chairs and ice chests were content sitting, eating, and enjoying the show. As a few too-cute children danced to the band, guitarist/singer Joey Delgado surprised the relaxed audience by saying, “The kids usually get the dancing started!” With some surprises herself, Claudia Campbell awarded her husband Dan with a commemorative plaque for his eighteen years of making Music In The Pines possible.

No open-air free concert would be complete without a tasty selection of food vendors to pacify those afternoon munchies. Rachel Wiley, owner of Mile High Pizza in Wrightwood, explained why she enjoys the open-air experience of selling her delicious pizza outside. “I love doing it! We provide a food option for everyone!” Linda from The Village Grind happily shared her booth’s wine and dessert samples while reminding guests of the upcoming “End Of Summer Fair” Saturday, August 5, 2023, at 5996 Cedar St. in Wrightwood.

Snowie California with “The Taste of Summer” snow cone stand was a welcome sight at this year’s “Music in the Pines.”

Love of great food, live music, and a sweet tooth is recommended for a good time during the Music In The Pines concert series. The Pine Needles Quilt Guild was on hand for the music, food and to promote their colorful craft to the neighborhood. Community participation was well represented at the Wrightwood Chamber of Commerce table, where newly crowned honorary Mayor Tina King parked her black top hat for a sparkly tiara and joined the chamber volunteers, also sporting tiaras, answering questions, and enjoying the festivities as well. Music In the Pines is a Mountain Music Production. For information on this or any of the fine events in Wrightwood, contact or (760) 249-4320 or
