Santa Lucia at the Waverly in Cumberland (again), Mar. 22nd
Another stellar show at the Waverly! These guys know how to do it.
I found out about Santa Lucia from cruising the Waverly’s event page, and I decided to check it out because nothing gets me more revved than a funky latin beat!
I ripped this from their website: “This addictive combination of Nuyorican Boogaloo, West Coast Funk and the ever present Cuban grooves engulfs the stage with monstrous horns and bass, funky breaks, polyrhythmic beats and furious lyrics in English and Spanish.” That about covers it!
Earlier that week my brand new camera finally arrived! I couldn’t wait to test it out, though I hardly knew a thing about all the settings for low lighting.
At one point the sax players fluidly played their way off the stage and onto the dance floor, proceeded to have a sax duel, then played their way up the stairs, onto a table, dueled some more, then headed back on stage. Such a good night!
During the break in between sets, German, the guitarist/lead singer, approached me, introduced himself and handed me his card, wondering if I could send him some of the pictures I had taken during the show. Why not :)
Viva live music!
