Arturo Sandoval brings a band to the Jefferson Center in Roanoke, Virginia, this Saturday night (1/24). The Jefferson Center is a multi-use arts facility uniquely renovated out of an old school (if my memory serves). Every year in January they add some caliente to the concert series with a top Latin music artist, followed by the annual Latin Dance Party.
Past headliners have included Eddie Palmieri, Spanish Harlem Orchestra and Pucho & His Latin Soul Brothers. I have not been able to find out yet who will be playing in Sandoval's group, but will update here after the show.
The Latin Dance Party (for a separate admission) directly follows Sandoval in a dancehall space in the same facility. D.C.-band Sin Miedo will entertain. Who knows, maybe some of the Miami Cubans will sit in...
