For the third year, Jim Byers, host of WPFW 89.3 FM’s Latin Flavor, presents rare, live and unreleased recordings of Palladium Ballroom-era Latin music legends. Featuring archival gems from Tito Puente’s biographer Joe Conzo, Sr., the event culminates with an open dance floor and live Latin band.
Featuring a panel by the co-leaders of the Grammy-nominated Mambo Legends Orchestra: legendary percussionists Jose Madera and Johnny “Dandy” Rodriguez, both 30+ year veterans of the Tito Puente orchestra. The open dance floor kicks off with live Latin music by DC’s popular Sin Miedo band, featuring Madera and Rodriguez as special guests!
