Salsa Saint Lucia unveils premier annual Jazz event
The event planning has switched to high gear as Salsa Saint Lucia prepares to host yet another of its highly popular annual signature events dubbed “The Latin Jazz Party” at the apex of the island’s Jazz season.
The yearly event was created by Salsa Saint Lucia’s CEO and founder Dr. Peter St. Rose to infuse some vibrant and pulsating Latin beats into the melodic, rhythmic and soulful Jazz music offering that is featured in Saint Lucia during this time of year. This magnetic combination packaged as “The Latin Jazz Party” quickly gained the recognition of the St. Lucia Tourist Board as well as tremendous support from the public.
This year’s “Latin Jazz Party” will be held on Saturday May 7 at the Indies Night Club in Rodney Bay from 10 pm. Patrons can look forward to beverage and snack tastings as well as fantastic giveaways. The highlight of the night will be the vibrant and dynamic mix of Latin dance performances by dancers from Trinidad, Martinique and Saint Lucia mixed with an explosive Latin fusion dance party. The versed and talented event DJs: DJ Conejo from Martinique, DJ Bruce from Trinidad and our very own DJ Peter, are expected to both entertain and electrify the crowd all night with fiery Latin beats.
To celebrate and promote Marc Anthony and the St. Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival, Salsa Saint Lucia has been hosting a series of promotional parties which commenced in February this year on every second and last Friday of the month at Keebees Bar and Blu Hotel and continues right through the May 7th and 8th main stage Jazz weekend. The promotional events include bar parties, hotel parties, after parties and a cool-down party after Jazz.
St. Rose has expressed extreme appreciation to the many sponsors of “The Latin Jazz Party” including platinum sponsors: Digicel, St. Lucia Tourist Board, Devon Biscuits and Winward & Leeward Brewery; gold sponsors: St. Lucia Distillers and Radio Caribbean International; collateral sponsors: SMJ Beverages, Forest Springs Water, Glamour Art, Diamonds International, Charles Chocolates and Sunshine Snacks.
Tickets for “The Latin Jazz Party” can be purchased at the Cell Outlets (Castries & Baywalk Mall), Keebees Bar in Rodney Bay, Ziggys Hair Salon at the Rodney Bay Mall and from Salsa Saint Lucia.
