On Saturday June 22nd 2019 there was a unique Salsa Music performance experience at the Normandy Fountain Miami Beach with world known Artist/Musician/Timbal Player Tito Puente Jr. , Miami’s own DJLeomiami and Salsa Instructor Fernando Garcia
Introducing an original musical concept of having a Live Percussionist performing along side a DJ Mixing your favorite Salsa music accompanied by Salsa dance Instructor Fitness by Fernando.
It’s a blend that gives you that Live performance feeling with a live Dj mixing playing all your favorite Salsa music. The weather was perfect, the music was great and the people (specially the Salsa dancers) were great.
It was fun to have the instructor in front of you teaching all the great salsa steps. He created some good routines while everyone followed along. It was a perfect opportunity to burn some calories. The music was on point and having Tito Puente Jr. performing live on stage just gave it a special live musician element and helped you stay on beat.
Adult beverages were provided by new neighborhood bar, Bob’s Your Uncle with food by Capris Italian and Casa Marina. Free Art activities for the kids was provided by Painting with a Twist. The fiesta lasted until 9:30 p.m. They had a Couple Salsa Dance Competition with $100 for first place, $50 for second place and $25 for third. Tito Puente Jr. was one of the judges with some local celebrity like Ray Guell and special guests.
The idea emerged in 2019 thanks to the joint efforts of KCC Productions and David Sexton.
