I am enjoying an evening of exceptional peace and quiet. Everybody is off making music elsewhere.
Sara and Cadence are practicing with the salsa band "Fuego," preparing for their first performance with them tomorrow night. "Fuego" means "Fire." They play Caribbean, African and Latin music with two drummers, horns, keyboard, guitar and bass. S and C sing harmony and play percussion. I hope to get some photos of Fuego in action tomorrow.
If you are in the vicinity, please join us for some hot music on a cold night!
Friday, Feb 20th at the Blue Moon Ballroom (2030 Hwy 14 East, Rochester, MN)In the meanwhile, Rog is performing with Candy Freak tonight. It's a musical, based on the book "Candy Freak" by Steve Almond, which was selected as the Rochester Reads book for 2009. Rochester Reads is an annual winter event in our town where everyone is encouraged to read the same book and participate in events based on its theme. Our friend Bob Sanborn wrote and directed a musical adaptation of the book, complete with choreography. Rog is one of the musicians.
