Que bola, mi gente? It's about that time yet again to proudly don some Cubaneo. What? You know you love it. Even if you're not Cuban, there's no denying that we make some great grooves for shakin' your ass to.
Providing an immediate opportunity for you to partake in some of that very ass shakin', Conjunto Progreso and Transit Lounge. The Grammy Award nominees, led by Johnny Aguilo, have been dubbed the Buena Vista Social Club of America. What they lack in legendary names like Compay Segundo, Eliades Ochoa and Ibrahim Ferrer, they make up for with the dead on son straight from the motherland.
Conjunto Progreso performs at Transit Lounge (729 SW 1 Ave) tonight. No cover.
