It’s been a minute since we’ve had a giveaway here on VivirLatino and I’m happy to offer this one up from one of my favorite hot spots in my home city of NYC, SOB’s (that stands for Sounds of Brazil malpensados).
The former All-Stars of the Tito Puente Orchestra, now performing as The Mambo Legends Orchestra, will grace the S.O.B.’s Salsa Groove series on Friday, November 16. And if you like that classic mambo sound from the 50′s and 60′s you’ll love hearing them and dancing to them.
VivirLatino is giving away a pair of tickets. Keep reading to find out how you can win.
Led by Tito Puente veterans, John ‘Dandy’ Rodriguez, Mitch Frohman and musically directed by Jose Madera, The Mambo Legends Orchestra will be performing the classic sounds of the “Palladium” era, with classics representing the bands of Tito Puente, Machito, Tito Rodriguez, and Mambo Legends originals. The Orchestra has successfully kept the sound of the Big 3 alive and well, while allowing for its progression by working with new musical concepts. Their latest album, “Watch Out/Ten Cuidao”, has been nominated for this year’s Best Salsa Album Latin Grammy Award in the Tropical Category.
Now I remember the Palladium before it was an NYU dorm. I was too young to dance there but my mom wasn’t I remember nights of her going out there to dance. I also by chance ended up hearing some of their Latin Grammy nominated album and it really does capture the essence of old school mambo/salsa but without feeling outdated. In other words, it made me want to move.
Wanna hear for yourself. SOB’s was kind enough to offer us a pair of tickets to give to you, VivirLatino readers. All we need from you is a comment below with a valid email address so we can gibe you the details if you win.
And apologies but you have to be over 21 to get into the club.
Suerte y que viva el mambo!
