S.O.B.'s Latin Concerts Presents:
Live In Concert!
"Traditional Cuban music mixed with New York style"
Grupo Irék mixes the sounds of Cuba - Son, Cha-Cha-Cha, Mambo - with New York City flavor into their original tunes. Featured on NBC TV and on WBAI 99.5 FM radio, they are quickly becoming a big name in the New York City music scene. Grupo Irék proves music comes from the soul with band members hailing from Cuba, Columbia, Germany, Israel and Brooklyn. Singer Chino Pons, whose dancing has been compared to Fred Astaire and Michael Jackson, has got to be seen in action! Don't miss this sure to be wonderful show and great Latin dance event.
“If you like your music hot, hot, hot, visit S.O.B.'s, the city's top world-music venue, specializing in Brazilian, Caribbean, and Latin sounds. The packed house dances and sings along nightly to calypso, samba, mambo, African drums, reggae, or other global grooves, united in the high-energy, feel-good vibe. Bookings include top-flight performers from around the globe; Astrud Gilberto, Mighty Sparrow, King Sunny Ade, Eddie Palmieri, Buckwheat Zydeco, Beausoleil, and Baaba Maal are only a few of the names who have graced this lively stage. The room's Tropicana Club style has island pizzazz that carries through to the Caribbean-influenced cooking and extensive tropical-drinks menu. This place is so popular that it's an excellent idea to book in advance, especially if you'd like table seating.”
