Wow this gig was a great example of how to host a terrific event in spite of and in the face of…horrific weather, and in a marquee !
And what’s more a gig in which mid way through, half of the guests get up and dance impeccably coordinated Salsa dance routines to one of our Latin favorites. The hostess was very kind :
“John’s trio was absolutely superb, playing a terrific selection of Jazz, Latin, and Salsa. It was lovely background while we ate and then really got the party going, guests just couldn’t wait to get on their feet. I can’t recommend them enough!“
Azur Band performs great vocal Latin Jazz …. Azur is also the name of a cool bar on a (very) nice beach…. Ipanema !
