About the amazing music for the evening:
The Chico Havana Orchestra, lead by Paul Asaro featuring The Flat Cats, Andy Schumm of the Fat Babies, Richie Santiago and many more will inspire you to dance, to sing, and to take a conga line trip around the magnificent dance floor at the Alhambra Palace, 1240 W. Randolph. This 12 piece orchestra was put together expressly to bring the sounds and feel of Caribbean and South American music into Chicago’s Riverwest neighborhood for this very special event. The music for the evening will range from traditional Mambo to quintessential Hot Jazz. You can try to stay in your seat, but your body is sure to take over and find you in the middle of the floor dancing the night away.
Guests are encourage to don classic vintage attire.
