Bud Light Latin Music Series

Nine-time Grammy winner Eddie Palmieri, the Spanish Harlem-born granddaddy of salsa and Latin jazz piano, “at once the Miles Davis and James Brown of the genre,” (Minneapolis City Pages) returns to Celebrate Brooklyn with an orchestra in tow to ignite the dance floor. “This is music so vital and joyous…a totally celebratory sound, bouncing, shuffling, weaving and grooving along on a beat so mesmeric and soul-wrenchingly right that you want it to go on forever.” (Time Out London) The multi-lingual tropical grooves of the enchanting Banda Magda start the evening off on a sunny note.
