Colón Y Más
A Tribute to Willie Colón
Presented by Cafe Coda and La Junta
Willie Colón was a force in the latin music world and the trombone universe. Collaborating with iconic singers like Celia Cruz, Ruben Blades and most notably Hector Lavoe, Colón’s music is a staple in the salsa/latin/jazz music genre.
This collaboration will feature three of Madison’s best jazz trombonists: Nat McIntosh (Youngblood Brass Band), Darren Sterud (Mama Digdown’s Brass Band), and Steven Beda (Latin Pride Orchestra), playing the iconic parts that became synonymous with salsa music.
Joining them will be some of Madison’s most notable Latin/Salsa and Jazz musicians. Led by vocalists Betty Guerrero (La Combi) and Mario Mendoza (Grupo Candela), and driven by the rhythms of pianist Chris Rottmayer (Chris Rottmayer Quartet), Peter Dominguez (Professor of Bass at UW), Yorel Lashley (Drum Power), José Madera (Charanga Agoza) and Francisco Martínez (Rebulu).
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the show.
