Celebrating Puerto Rico
August 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Searching for some hot and spicy musical entertainment in the heat of August? Interested in the highly syncopated rhythm of the Plena, the double and triple time of the Merengue, and the incorporation of jazz and rock in the Salsa? Or how about the Rumba, the Bomba and the Merengue? Then come listen and swing to the sounds of the Carribean during the JEMS’ “Celebrating Puerto Rico” program.
This JEMS’ “Celebrating Puerto Rico” event will be held on Saturday, August 12th beginning at 7 PM at the Main Street Events Stage, 4912 Main Street, Jeffersonville. This program will mark the sixth international day sponsored and created by Jeffersonville JEMS.
The featured attraction will be Cuboricua, a group of eight Hudson Valley musicians that plays music of the Carribean. These veteran musicians have performed and recorded with such renown artists as Celia Cruz, Pete “El Conde” Rodriguez, Eddie Palmieri, Monguito “el unico”, Los Kimbos and the New Swing Sextet, to name a few.
Spice Café located at 4889 State Route 52 (Main Street) and Samba Restaurant at 4893 State Route 52 (Main Street) will feature Puerto Rican cuisine throughout the day. Patrons will be glad they tried the scrumptious culinary delights of either or both of these restaurants.
Suggested donations for the performance are $5 for students and $10 for adults. Children age 12 and under are free. Our seating is limited so please remember to bring a chair. For “Celebrating Puerto Rico” JEMS hopes to surpass the 150 guests who enjoyed our concert last month.
