An Afternoon of Music

In keeping with the tradition of providing a creative, relaxed environment to create music that could also become a laboratory for product development and improvement for Latin Percussion, I hosted an Afternoon Of Music on July 2nd at my home.

Featured in this gathering was Samuel Torres, musical director, arranger and percussionist; Little Johnny Rivero percussionist on LP Giovanni Compact Congas & Djembe; Ernesto Simpson, drummer on LP Tito Puente Timbales; Robert Rodriguez, pianist; Arturo Romay, guitarist; Panagiotis Andreou, bassist; Ivan Renta, saxophonist; Anthony Alvarez, percussionist on LP Pro Merengue Güiro and Tambora; and Julie Dollarson, vocalist.

As always, my wife Vivianne provided a feast for the hungry musicians. After a day and evening of music it was into the swimming pool for a game of volleyball.
