This is a past event.

Orquesta Gardel 

When: Sat., Aug. 3, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12
The monarch of Triangle salsa bands convenes for a final summer blowout before trombonist and co-leader Andy Kleindienst takes up his graduate studies. Classics of the salsa street meet high-concept originals within the repertoire of this 13-piece Latin big band, making for a vibrant trip through the "Caribbean" cities of Havana, Santo Domingo, New York and Miami. This orchestra deserves the handle La Concentida de los Bailadores (The Dancers' Favorite), but it's also a favorite among musicians and casual listeners who enjoy locked-in grooves and demanding solos. Expect the firepower of a real, Afro-Caribbean jam session. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
