Music Festival: Orquesta Chevere
March 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Put on your dancing shoes and enjoy a morning of salsa dance music with Randy Holmes and his band Orquesta Chevere. This 10-piece St. Louis-based band is comprised of singers, trumpets, trombones, piano, bass, congas, timbales, and Latin percussion.
Salsa is an umbrella term for a popular dance music genre that initially arose in New York City during the 1960s. It is the product of various Cuban musical genres including the Afro-Cuban montuno, guara-cha, cha cha chá, mambo, bolero, and the Puerto Rican plena and bomba. Latin jazz has also had a significant influence. Salsa is primarily Cuban itself and a fusion of Spanish folk songs with guitar and Afro- Cuban percussion, merged with North American jazz. Salsa also occasionally incorporates elements of rock, R&B, and funk.
Half of today’s *undesignated collection will be donated to the Kingdom House food pantry. (*Note: If you pay your membership pledge through the collection, write “pledge” on your check, and it will not be divided.)
