There will be a dance
floor for dancing the sinuous, sensuous, boleros, merengues
and salsa. We are inviting the consulates from all the South American and Caribbean lands, the chambers of commerces, etc. etc.
We expect an international audience to join with an orquesta
from many nations. We are very much looking forward to having YOU with us for
this big party to celebrate. If you can help us bring your friends, as well, by
circulating a glitzy email announcement, we are already appreciating it from
the bottoms of our hearts!

being prepared and we will send it to you when the Regatta Bar is ready to sell
tickets. We hope you will be able to send it to many of your favorite people.
We look forward to playing smooth, sophisticated latin
music for you and sharing in the dynamic energy of the birth of a new band!..
We will let you know,
meanwhile. where we will be playing in other places in
January, February and early March . Hector Cuevas, Director, Janet Wiseman,
Manager, TheBoston Latin Band
hope the new logo will be the word Latin, in a sinuous, sensuous, curvaceous
line, with the i becoming a dancing salsero, jazzing up the name, so to speak!)
