COURTESY PHOTO - Lucky Diaz and Alisha Gaddis will bring their high-energy pop music to the Forest Grove Library Wednesday, July 20. They won a Latin Grammy award in the childrens album category in 2013.Latin Grammy winners Lucky Diaz and Alisha Gaddis, a married couple, create indie music sounds that are rooted in their child-friendly imaginations.

The songs on their five award-winning recordings are aimed at exploring all the joyous wonder of a young person’s life.

The duo will perform their bilingual sounds as Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band at the Forest Grove Library, 2114 Pacific Ave., on Wednesday, July 20, at 11 a.m.

The band is on top of all things kids’ music and brings smart, crafty lyrics with irresistible pop beats.

They were the very first Americans to ever win a Latin Grammy — in the children’s album category in 2013. Eventgoers should prepare for a hip-shaking, head bopping dance party explosion of indie fresh pop rock.

The duo has logged thousands of miles touring the country and performed in sold-out venues such as the Smithsonian, Los Angeles Book Festival Target Stage, Skirball Cultural Center and Madison Square Park.

They’ve been featured in publications such as The New York Times, The Washington Post and E! TV.

The performance is free and open to the public.

Dancing is encouraged.
