Little Johnny Rivero at Carnegie Hall

Little Johnny Rivero was with La Sonora Poncena, the famous band from Puerto Rico, for fifteen years. His last performance with them was in 1991.

On Saturday night, June 23, 2001, Johnny had the chance to perform with this band again -- at the famed Carnegie Hall. Once invited to the stage by bandleader, Papo Luca, Little Johnny gave an amazing performance that just tore the place up, and was showered with praise by past and present fans.
