They embrace the essence of old school record playing and socializing, and partner with venues, gather the records, and play for the people in a lively and sonically progressive manner while offering party-goers a safe space to enjoy expression, art, and dance.
johnny mambo & friends live at Daffodil Hill
Groove to the sizzling sounds of salsa performed by Bronx native Johnny Mambo and some of his close musical collaborators. Mambo’s band is propelled by energetic rhythms from hard-driving bongos, congas, and timbales, and punctuated by biting brass, transporting the listener to a San Juan dance club. Band lineup features Johnny Mambo (Bongo), Gilberto Velazquez (Vocals), Jesse Perez (Conga), Adan Perez (Piano), Jerry Madera (Bass) and Raul Navarrette (Trombone)

Join us at the Edible Academy for a play about our friend Gwendolyn. On a rainy day when electronic distractions have been removed, Gwendolyn spends her afternoon daydreaming, imagining her future as a member of an all-girl band. Get ready for her to create characters and puppeteer them right in front of your eyes! Written by Dante Albertie and Mary Ann McSweeney.
