Join us tonight at An Tua Nua as usual!  Scroll down for details.


Halloween falls on Wednesday this year and we're planning a big party at An Tua Nua of course, costume contest, cash prizes.  HOWEVER... it's also the scheduled night of game 6 of the World Series, so we've been told by management that we may not be open that night, depending on whether the Sox make it.  So stay tuned.  We may move the party if needed for that one night.




This Saturday is a benefit party for Fernando's Hideaway Show at Tabu ultra-lounge in Saugus.  Come out and support this show, which supports so many of Boston's Salsa events.  See mailbag for details.




Big party coming up!  Yes, Fall is approaching and SalsaBoston will be hosting a series of events at the Hyatt Regency, Cambridge, after a long hiatus.  Stay tuned for details on the next gala edition of "Miami Club" on Saturday Nov. 17!  Featuring an expanded dance floor, complementary eats, great entertainment, "Salsa for Gringos" lessons, all ages welcome, and Boston's largest indoor Salsa Parties!  If you'd like to be involved (performers, volunteers, sponsors, bands, etc.) let us know.  Email laf@salsaboston.com">olaf@salsaboston.com

Close to the green line (St. Mary's on the C train, Fenway on the D, Kenmore on the B), plenty of street and lot parking.


Irish/America/Bar food available until 10pm.  I have eaten there regularly, it is very tasty and modestly priced.


Note: they have Karaoke with my man Kev-Mac Daddy in the front portion of the bar when you walk in, but don't let that scare you... Salsa is in the back room!  Full Bar.  Please check your coat.

A concert dedicated to Cuba’s music and dance traditions from the ancestral

Boston, MA – La Casa de La Cultura / Center for Latino Arts, is pleased to

announce the Boston premiere presentation of NOCHE CUBANA/CUBAN NIGHT, as

best Cuban music and dance practitioners from New York and New England to

take us on a journey through some of the numerous styles of Cuban music and

dance, from the ancestral religious music and dance from the Lucumí, Abakuá

and Palo traditions, to the secular Rumba Guaguancó and Columbia, to the

rural sounds of Son and Changüí, the sultry sounds of the

classically–influenced Danzón and Cha-Cha-Cha, to the Rock and

Funk-influenced Songo and Timba and more.  Hosted by Alberto Vasallo Jr. and

under the artistic direction of master dancer, drummer, singer and

choreographer Reynaldo González former member of one of Cuba’s most

respected traditional music and dance institutions Grupo Afrocuba de

Matanzas, Noche Cubana will offer a unique opportunity to witness and enjoy

some of the most representative music and dance expressions from Cuba, which

have left an imprint on the development of the contemporary music of Latin

America and the US. 


The participating artists will also offer a matinee performance for children

of the South End schools on Friday October 26th, as part of IBA’s efforts to

bring quality Latino arts to our youth.
