Ska Cubano downtown, Saturday 7/8, 8:00

Free, but they are holding a fundraiser, $5 parking. Link

Click here for sample music clips.

The music is a meld of Jamaican and Cuban, but the stagecraft of Ska Cubano seems more like Desi Arnaz - or Ricky Ricardo even. I keep waiting for Lucy to come out from the wings. In trying to crib a little from online reviews, I had a hard time finding one that did not use the word "infectious." Dancing is optional, but smiling will be unavoidable.

It's at California Plaza as part of the Grand Performances series. Their new album comes out Tuesday.
