Santa Clara, CA -- Celebrate Mexican Independence Day with the San Jose Earthquakes and some of the hottest Latin artists for a concert in the Redwood Amphitheater on Saturday Sept. 16 at Paramount's Great America.

Son by FourLatin Grammy-nominated Puerto-Rican quartet Son by Four bring their tropical sounds for an exciting performance of salsa, "soneros" and R&B. Already No. 1 on The Billboard Latin 50 album and Hot Latin Tracks charts for a record-breaking 17 consecutive weeks, Son by Four's latest album and single are quickly rising to the top of the U.S. pop charts and their song "Purest of Pain (A Puro Dolor)" is already a top forty hit on The Billboard Hot 100.

Taste the freestyle "flava" with hot Latin singer Angelina.
