Funky, Latin dance party for Salem Jazz and Soul Festival’s Spring Fundraiser at Ames Hall

The Salem Jazz and Soul Festival will throw a dance party in April featuring the band Combo Sabroso, a Latin band with reggae influences out of Boston. All proceeds will benefit the festival, a volunteer-run nonprofit celebrating its eighth season.

PRLog - Apr. 9, 2014 - SALEM, Mass. -- The fundraiser will take place at the recently refurbished Ames Hall -- in the Salem YMCA -- on Saturday, April 26 from 8 to 10:30 p.m. (doors open at 7:30 p.m.). It’s sponsored by Howling Wolf Taqueria, Ruby Wines and Salem Cycle.

The night will feature auctions and raffles featuring items donated by generous North Shore businesses and artists.

Tickets (available at salemjazzsoul.org, and Pamplemousse, In a Pig’s Eye, both in Salem) are $25 and proceeds will fund the Salem Jazz and Soul Festival’s non-profit mission of producing free concerts and supporting music education causes on the North Shore. This is SJSF’s only ticketed show of the year.

About Combo Sabroso: Combo Sabroso (tasty combo) presents soul cleansing Latin dance music and reggae. Lead by pianist Matt Jenson, the group is committed to the hard hitting “salsa dura” sound of the 1970s, playing hits from the likes of Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, Oscar D’leon and Sonora Poncena. The band also does salsa arrangements of American R&B hits from the likes of Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers and Santana. The group can turn on a dime and hit you with reggae versions of massive pop hits by artists such as Elton John, Steve Miller and The Police. The band’s members are from Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Saint Maarten, Venezuela and the United States.

In the coming months, the Salem Jazz and Soul Festival, a volunteer-run nonprofit, will put on:

·         The SJSF/Berklee Summer Series at Derby Square, Salem, with Berklee College of Music student bands, on May 10, June 14, July 12 and Aug. 9

·         The Salem Jazz and Soul Festival, a two-day concert at the Salem Willows, with 10 bands, a music-education tent, kids tent, 21-plus beer garden and artisans selling hand-made goods, Aug. 16-17
