A tribute to Cugat’s greatest

“…a show bursting with fully realized concepts and

magic.”
~ John Hoglund, After Dark Reviews
Join the conga line for a trip down Memory Lane to the
very roots of Latin music in America- the heyday of the
sizzling Xavier Cugat Orchestra is brought to life with
the original arrangements of the hits he introduced to
this country: “My Shawl,” “Brazil,” “La Cumparsita”
and “Miami Beach Rumba,”just to name a few.
Then it’s off to the Tropicana for an affectionate look
at the life and career of Cugat’s greatest protégé,
Desi Arnaz. Get out your straw hat and sing along to
“Cuban Pete,” “I Love Lucy,” “El Cumbanchero,”
“Tico Tico,” and of course, “Babalu.” These songs all
were featured in the award-winning show
“Babalu-cy! The Art of Desi Arnaz,” which had
New York critics shouting “Ole!”
