Global Arts Project and the Collins Park Neighborhood Association celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Tito Puente, Jr and His Latin Jazz Ensemble in a FREE performance in Collins Park September 29 from 4-7 PM. This is the fourth of five free concerts in the 2019 Artscape series. The park is at 2100 Collins Ave, behind the Bass Museum, which will have FREE admission for their Family Day program and children activities from 10am-5pm
Tito Puente Jr. is determined to nurture the musical legacy left by his father, Tito Puente, Sr., Latin jazz Mambo King, and he does so with charm and grace. The comparison is inevitable – in his looks, his joy, and his music. Crowds who were lured to venues by his father now return to see his son and to once again participate in the high voltage celebration that takes place on stage. Professional salsa dancers will perform during the set.
“A dazzling show filled with charisma, flair and all the right dance moves. His skill at playing, singing and dancing was undeniable… Tito Puente Jr. shined with a talent that was all his own.” -The Examiner
“Tito Puente Jr. heats things up” -Fox News
The concert opens at 4 PM with iconic Drag DJ Adora, who will spin as opening act for Salsa Class by Fitness by Fernando. Painting with a twist will also have children’s painting activities.
