Latin Jazz and Art Festival
World class Latin Jazz musicians Rico Monaco Band with Special Guest Star Tito Puente Jr. perform at the upcoming Latin Jazz and Art Festival on Saturday, September 28, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. at Lake Concord Park located at 95 Triplet Lake Drive behind Casselberry City Hall.
Rico is an award winning guitarist, songwriter, producer, and band leader. He has led his band (sometimes as large as 17 pieces) with great success to shows in Paris, France, New York City, San Francisco, Washington DC, Dallas, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and many other concert locations. Rico’s performance abilities, songwriting & production skills paved the way for his band to win numerous awards. Rico Monaco Band’s latest record release in 2019 with special guest star, Tito Puente Jr., features the title song "Hey Tito", as a tribute to the late great Tito Puente.
Special guest star and award winning musician, Tito Puente Jr. is leaving his own mark on the music world while still honoring the legacy of his father, Tito Puente. Tito Jr. carries the maestro’s name, infectious smile, larger than life spirit, bravura showmanship and passion for sharing Latin jazz with the world. His determination to continue his dad’s momentum exposes the big band mamba sounds to those who did not experience the essence of Latin music created by his father, Tito Puente.
A Latin Art Exhibit at City Hall titled "El Arte Eleva" (Art Elevates) will be available for viewing during the concert from 5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. This colorful exhibit will feature Florida's most renowned Latin artists.
Along with great Latin Jazz and Art, this event will feature savory cuisine, specialty vendors, Latin dance presentations, live art demonstrations, colorful artists booths and delightful children’s activities. Everyone is invited to bring blankets, chairs and all of their friends this the lakefront festive party.
