What can I say except that this was the perfect party.  It was one of those nights where the music was amazing, the atmosphere had a wonderful vibe, the people were in great spirits, and there was a perfect mix of dancers and spectators.  Also, a beautiful venue is always a plus. You would've had to be a total crab to be grouchy on a night like this. 

Orquesta Bravo set the place on fire with some of the best instrumental solos I've ever heard, and of course you know they can sing their butts off.  Speaking of which, I don't know how Juan Manuel gets that big voice out of that skinny frame, but he can blow.  And to all my handsome Latino brothas who ended the night with the impromptu Plena,  "Go on and do the darn thing" y'all tore it up.  Anyone who knows me knows how hard it was for me to stand by and film during this exceptional, percussionist's jam session. To read more about Plena,

Anyhow, I'll rap it up, because the video is long.  (I had so much amazing footage, it was hard to narrow it down).  I give this night a 5 out of 5.


Thanks for reading,
