SG Blog Post for May 2018
Happy Spring! We have been buzzing with one of our busiest seasons of the year… Pedal power, performances, booking out the remainder of summer & fall, coordinating festivals and events, and traveling between the Bay and Sierras keeping up with all the fun events. Our Sierra foothills studio is coming along nicely, with the addition of sound panels this week. We are also excited to be getting closer and closer to the due date of our little one in early to mid-June! We want to thank our extended community for all of your support, love and sweet gifts on this journey! We have never seen so many epically, artistically decorated onesies!
We hope you enjoy our updates below. Please feel free to contact us to get involved, ask questions, inquire or refer to us for recording, booking, lessons, event coordination and more!
Fito Reinoso y su Ritmo Armonia
For over a thirty years, Fito Reinoso has made the Bay Area his home and is the only Cuban born based sonero in the area performing a variety of styles, from the most recent urban Havana grooves to “timba” to the classic son and cha-cha-cha, all with a voice reminiscent of the late and beloved legendary Cuban singer, Beny Moré.
We are stoked to have Fito and crew at this years’ annual Makers Faire, rock the bike Pedal Powered Stage. They always bring the quality, pro vibes, and often no one is left without the urge to dance! come by and check them out on Sunday, May 20th at 12pm and 2pm
