Jazz Picks: June 23-June 29, 2017

My Jazz Picks This Week

Orquesta GarDel

Friday, June 23rd 6-8PM @ Durham Central Park

Durham Central Park debuts its NEW free 10-week concert series in June 23. Thoroughly multinational but uniquely North Carolinian, Orquesta GarDel thrills audiences with a high-energy Latin dance music experience. The monstrous thirteen-member lineup replicates the format of a classic Nuyorican salsa dura ensemble – a full deck of horn players, percussionists, and coro singers. Rooted in its own arrangements of songs from the great salsa, cumbia, and merengue artists, this is ultimately not a cover band. Food trucks and craft beer vendors to be announced.
