Description

Get up and dance or watch the views and listen to gorgeous traditional Cuban music by Pepito Gomez, called one of Cuba’s best singers of all time by Omara Portuondo of the Buena Vista Social Club.

Called “another order of performer” by The New York Times, “Pepito” Gómez has taken the U.S. by storm since his arrival from Cuba. His soulful tenor voice, both beautiful and strong, has a unique timbre rarely found. His authentic Cuban sound has caught the attention of fans, critics and fellow musicians.

His popularity is worldwide; he has sold out venues like Italy’s 5,000-capacity La Tropical. Joe’s Pub Theatre in New York debuted Pepito’s Evolution of Cuban Music project, and it sold out as well. Recent awards include Fiestacubana.net’s Best Male Singer and an award in Cuba for his touching song on environmental awareness, “Tiempo Dificiles.” Recent shows include famed venues such as Carnegie Hall, The Fillmore, Jackie Gleason Theatre in Miami, Yoshi’s in Oakland  and the Havana Film Festival in New York. Gomez is now recording with nine-time Grammy-winning producer Jose Lugo.

The evening includes a 3-hour skyline cruise around Manhattan, full dinner buffet of rice, beans, chicken, yuka and plantains and a free Salsa class. There is a cash bar.
