Son Pa Ti (Latin Band) Playing at the Turquiose Bar - Sat. Jan 24th

Great news! We have a new band we can follow that plays son cubano, salsa, chachacha, Latin jazz and boleros. They have a regular slot at the Turquoise Bar in Pacific Beach. They are called Son Pa Ti. They have their own website. A group of us stumbled onto this band right after another live band event at the Turquoise Bar. If you haven't been to this place, you must put it on your bucket list to have a drink and listen to some great music. Here is a link to the Cafe Bar Europa Turquoise Bar. We found their music to be authentic and fun. Let's go and dance to our beloved son cubano music by Son Pa Ti.

Kimba Light will be playing at the Turquoise Bar/Cafe in Pacific Beach on January 31st. Come listen to the fun poly-rhythmic Cuban tunes of Kimba Light.  They play many Latin genres of music such as timba, chachacha, son Cubano, pop en Espanol, rock en Espanol and bachata night an they throw their own timba spin to many of the songs you hear that are not timba.  It appears they have a regular slot beginning February to play the 2nd Saturday of the month. Last time in between their breaks, they let us play some timba from my playlist. So there is more of an incentive to support this event more regularly.
