Bring a chair or blanket to the Romanza Festivale of the Arts Opening Concert featuring Luis Mario Peral & his Rumba Kings as they bring their Latin-flavored music to the Plaza on the night of Cinco de Mayo. A singer and composer from Cuba, Luis Mario and his 5 band members have been playing in St. Augustine for the past 20 years, covering many city events and area restaurants. Peral’s Latin Jazz Band consists of very talented musicians who perform Rumba, Flamenco, Salsa, and Mambo. Luis Mario will have you dancing to his music which also includes a twist of English/Spanish rhythms. They’ll be performing from 5:30pm to 7:00pm.
Stick around…from 7:30pm to 9:00pm celebrate Cinco de Mayo with The Caribbean Salsa Band. They’ve been performing in the Orlando area for more than 10 years and have performed for some of the best salsa players in the world including Tito Nieves, Tony Vega, Andy Montanez, Tito Rojas, and Ismael Miranda.
These concerts are part of A Little Night Music Series, free concerts in the Plaza and colonial Quarter during the Romanza Festivale of the Arts that features a variety of regional bands.
