Snowboy & The Latin Section
STANDING/DANCING ROOM ONLY. NO SEATING. The live band is followed by a 90-minute DJ session and a DJ will also be playing tunes to get you in the mood before the gig. Get your dancing shoes on for a whole evening of entertainment! With 15 albums behind them, Snowboy & The Latin Section are one of the UK’s best Afro-Cuban Jazz bands, loved by both the jazz fans and the salsa crowd, as well as being one of the few bands that Eddie Palmieri has written a song for. Snowboy himself is regarded as one of the UK’s top percussionists having worked with the likes of Lisa Stansfield, JTQ and Incognito. Herman Olivera Jr is considered one of the world’s greatest living salsa singers and one of the very few Soneros left in the true salsa genre. This dynamic vocalist is currently with the Eddie Palmieri Orchestra where he is featured on five CDs. This is a rare opportunity to hear two greats of the Latin scene together. SALSA WORKSHOP 5.30-6.30PM REHEARSAL HALL, MUSIC DEPARTMENT Beginners’ salsa workshop £6. Space limited, book early to avoid disappointment.
