Orquesta GarDel, DJ Salsa Mike 

When: Sat., June 11, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $13-18

Motorco's terrazzo floor will take a shoe-leather polishing Saturday night when Orquesta GarDel, the Triangle's highest-octane salsa band, takes up residence. That is, if tonight's anything like the sold-out CD-release party held there in January for Lo Que Tú Querías, GarDel's fan-funded EP. Whether spinning out funky Havana timba or classic '70s Fania, the powerful sound of this 13-member outfit comes from fully loaded sections of horns, percussion and vocalists. "The name of the game is keeping our songs and covers fresh with surprise changes, transitions and solos, all in the name of interacting with our audience," says pianist and leader Eric Hirsh. With DJ Salsa Mike spinning tropical grooves between sets, this night is primed to give Durham the Latin dance party it deserves. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
