Bobby Torres Ensemble at Jimmy Mak's

The Bobby Torres Ensemble will be performing at Jimmy Mak’s on Saturday November 3, 2012 at 8:00 pm. Featuring special guest Israel Annoh, Master Drummer from Ghana. Driving Afro-Cuban rhythms ignite this inspired blend of Latin, Jazz, and Rock-n-Roll to create Torres’ signature sound. Bobby’s 12– piece Ensemble features Latin polyrhythms, tasty piano licks, a synco-pulsating Latin bass, five fat horns, and 2 lead vocalists. NEW!! Included with your cover, join Julana Torres at 7:00 PM for Latin Salsa Dance Lessons. No partner and no experience necessary. For this event, Jimmy Mak clears a large area in front of the stage for dancing. There is plenty of room for party-go-ers to kick it with Bobby, the Ensemble and friends. Cover: $10.00.

Hey Strip clubs, Talk about who is dancing at your clubs as if they are an "act"!!! Then talk about all the different alcohol types you sell!!!! Save money on advertising and bring in paying customers, and claim it is a society event!!!

Hey KATU, is this just a sneaky way for someone to advertise their business? Are you going to let anyone use this forum to promote their for profit events? Just asking.......
