Annon & The Late Show will play a free show at the Oro Valley Marketplace. 

Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance

The town of Oro Valley and the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance present a free town concert series the second Thursday of each month.

Tonight’s concert, at 6 p.m., will feature Annon & The Late Show. The group covers songs such as “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers and “Evil Ways” by Santana.

The free show takes place at the Oro Valley Marketplace, located at the southwest corner of North Oracle and East Tangerine roads in the Century Theatres Courtyard.

Annon & The Late Show is the creation of Roderick Annon. Based out of Tucson, the band plays smooth, Latin-style R&B as well as blues and classic music. It also plays original music written by Annon.

“The music I write has a direct connection with things that have taken place in my life, and the people through the years that I have come in contact with, good or bad. Every event has a place in my memory,” Annon said.

“For me as an artist, this is what it’s all about. Some of my music is in the form of instrumentals and some songs are with lyrics that tell a story.”

Oro Valley and SAACA have presented the town’s free music series for two years.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs to the shows.

Performances support local musicians in steel drums, guitar, Latin and classic jazz, boogie woogie piano, blues, country and more.
