9PM - Spanglish Fly
SPANGLISH FLY is part band, part celebration: 11 musicians igniting a party that quickly spreads to the audience. They have been hailed for, "single-handedly reviving sixties bugalú in NYC" (NBC New York). Boogaloo! that mix of Latin and soul/R&B music that emerged from the clubs, the street corners, the transistor radios and the pool halls of 1960s Spanish Harlem. That irresistible groove that blends Afro-Caribbean rhythms with the passion and the harmonies of 60s-era soul. Paying tribute to the boogaloo genre while refreshing it for a new generation, SPANGLISH FLY "roars through covers, originals, and transformations of previously untouched soul hits" (Village Voice).
