Get up and dance or just relax and listen to gorgeous traditional Cuban music by Pepito Gomez, called one of Cuba's best singers of all time by Omara Portuondo of the Buena Vista Social Club. His sextet will perform a true homage to this beautiful style of music!


Called "another order of performer" by The New York Times, "Pepito" Gómez has taken the world by storm.  His soulful tenor voice, both beautiful and strong, has a unique timbre rarely found. His authentic Cuban sound has caught the attention of fans, critics and fellow musicians. 


His popularity is worldwide; he has sold out venues like Italy's 5,000-capacity La Tropical. Joe's Pub Theatre. Recent awards include Fiestacubana.net's Best Male Singer and an award in Cuba for his touching song on environmental awareness, "Tiempo Dificiles." Recent shows include famed venues such as Carnegie Hall, The Fillmore, Jackie Gleason Theatre in Miami, Yoshi's in Oakland, Calif., and the Havana Film Festival in New York. Gomez is also now a founding member of Guasabara with 9 time Grammy-winning producer Jose Lugo.

Pepito Gómez's is ... another order of performer." --The New York Times


Pepito Gomez is the best young singer from Cuba today- Omara Portuondo/Buena Vista Social Club  

 

DROM is one of Manhattan's most sought after venues for world music and international sounds. Voted by Village Voice as "Best New Dance Club" last month in their Best of NYC issue, the club has a live stage for performances, a restaurant, bar and lounge. Here is an excerpt from the Voice

 

“The basement dancerie Drom celebrated its reopening in the spring after quietly shutting down more than a year ago. The time off did the space a service. Once just another bar hidden among the dives of the East Village, Drom has now fully embraced its original aim of bringing global dance music to NYC. The club hosts a cozy lounge that leads way into a gorgeous dance floor backlit by the warm flicker of bar lights and a Turkish chandelier that looms above.”


Full Bar Available, Drinks are available for purchase.
