Lookie Lookie Friday Special, Featuring Vicente's Magic Soup

Doors open at 7:30
Sets at 8:30 and 10:15

It will be the latter part of August, and you may be thinking about that weekend at the beach. So we're having our Lookie Lookie bugalú party on Friday instead of the usual Saturday.

Those who know our conguero Vicente Lebron, know how he loves to cook. One of his specialties is soup – fish soup, meat soup. We're not sure what goes in there but it is incredibly sabroso and packed with juju. It's good and good for you, as the ads used to say. We'll be featuring his chef's choice soup at this Friday special party.

The crowds have been getting bigger, so we strongly recommend that you buy tickets in advance because soon we're going to have to limit admission. It also helps us estimate the amount of food we'll need to take care of y'all.

As always, basic admission of $20 gets you in for a seven piece band, beer, wine and food. You are heartily encouraged to BYO and help the cause, and there are opportunities for you to ante up a little more loot onliine or in person if you can afford it. The eight members of the band and the "venue operator" appreciate every penny. The more we collect, the more of these parties we'll throw!

Only 50 tickets available at $20 price point, 30 at $30. Buy now!

Doors open at 7:30
Sets at 8:30 and 10:15

Bugalú para el siglo XXI (the 21st Century)

Lookie Lookie revives great 1960's songs by Richie Ray, Joe Cuba, George Guzman, Pete Rodriquez, Eddie Palmieri, Jimi Hendrix. Bugalú pollinates mambo with elements of soul and American pop; with strong soloists and deep, complex grooves, Lookie brings an element of jazz exploration to the mix.

Four percussionists, three horns and a bass, with everybody singing, means waves of rhythm and melody.

And remember, you don't need to know the first thing about Latin dancing to shake your booty to Lookie Lookie. But if you are an expert, that'll work too. And it ain't no crime just to listen: with eight fine musicians going at it, there is plenty for the ears to enjoy.
