Celebrating the golden voice of Héctor Lavoe
A Night of Live Salsa

Saturday 12th December

*This show was postponed from Friday 27 March 2020, tickets from the previous date remain valid*

Join us this March to celebrate the life and music of the Golden Voice of Salsa, Héctor Lavoe at The Jazz Cafe.

Vince Vella leads an all star band of London’s finest players in the salsa tradition to pay homage to one of the most tragic and glittering careers in the history of Latin music, featuring the unrivalled vocal talents of one of London’s standout performers Rene Alvarez Portuondo.

Lavoe’s decades of recording earned him global star-status and, paired with trombonist Willie Colón, he began one of the most productive and lasting collaborations in Salsa. The pair would produce 14 albums. Lavoe’s articulate voice, talent for improvisation, and wit complemented Colón’s brash New York City trombone-driven sound.

Following his duo partnership with Colón, Lavoe’s solo efforts cemented his standing as a superstar. Heading the Colón orchestra, he travelled the world over and was a frequent guest singer with the Fania All-Stars before his death in 1993.
