David Gonzalez with Poetic License Band

Venue Location: 
Date & Time: 
Saturday, October 15, 2016 - 7:30pm

Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month!

Free event. Presented by City of Jamestown Cultural Bridges Action Team.

Storyteller and singer, David Gonzalez will be joined by Poetic License Band for an engaging concert fill with multilingual lyrics, cultural tales, dancing and more. The Poetic License Band mixes the rhythms of Afro-Cuban music and modern jazz with poetry from the "now-moment" of contemporary American Latin culture. Gonzalez's poems and stories document his own personal odyssey while Bobby Sanabria keeps a powerful percussive backbeat, shifting from sacred Yoruba chants to mambo-flavored house grooves. Gonzalez performed at The Reg last May in a memorable concert for the public and area schools.
