Tito Puente Scholarship Boat Ride
New York City, 1998
Part 1

The King, Tito Puente, proud to be hosting the 18th annual Scholarship Fund dinner/dance cruise on the Hudson River on July 25, 1998. Besides performing with his band, Johnny Almendra's Jovenes del Barrio were performing.


Tito performed on his custom timbales from LP.
He returned from a European tour hours before the cruise set sail.


Tito hams it up for the camera.


After a month-long tour of Europe
and little sleep, the King looks
marvelous before performing.
