We had a fun return to the DLV Lounge in Montclair on Fri. March 27... with special guest Rico on bass... and we celebrated the Return of Spring. It was a triumphant night and we were joined by world-renowned Cumbia dancer Jacqueline Jimenez who was on her way to perform in Washington DC! She taught Felipe a few cumbia moves and the traditional dance with lit candles... a special night for all who witnessed it... Colombia was in the house!
Our Brooklyn debut was at The Way Station on March 7! It took us a while to get there... we should film a reality show of what goes on behind the scenes as we travel to a gig... but it was worth the trip! What a crowd of wild dancers! The energy never let up during our 1 hour whirlwind set on that tiny stage, and we had a guest percussionist from Mar Salå sit in with us too. What a blast!! We'll be back there for TWO SETS at The Way Station on Saturday June 13! 10 pm to midnite. No cover!
Thanks to all who braved the recent freezing weather to see us! The Viva Vallenato Trio played quieter gigs at churches in Lincroft and East Brunswick NJ.... In January, the full band had two really fun gigs at the cozy DLV Lounge in Montclair NJ. Then there was the ecstatic debut at Harlem's Silvana on Feb. 7! Special Gracias to our Jersey peeps who came out to party with us! And Sal's Dad took some video which you can see on this site. We'll be back at Silvana on Saturday May 16, 10 pm to midnight, Two sets and NO COVER :)
