 They’re Back  !!!!

I WANT TO PERSONALY THANK EVERYONE FOR MAKING SELENAS A SUCCESS LAST YEAR ! IN THE SPIRIT OF THINGS TO COME I HAVE INVITED SEXTETO TRADICUBA TO RETURN JAn 15th. I WAS IN CUBA LAST TIME THEY PLAYED AND I HEARD THEY WERE A GREAT SUCCESS. I will continue in 2011 to strive to keep Selenas the place you want to dance your ^%$@# off every Saturday  Night. For sure we have gotten the attention of the latin dance community here in Seattle and many of my friends/fellow dj’s/promoters have taken notice. Every Weekend I play for free – no cover so you can come and enjoy the sounds of Cuba. I expanded last year to invite the local bands to play for us every couple weeks so that we can keep the live musc alive here in our city. I hope that for everyone weather you come every week or once in a while that it continues to be an insperation and enjoyment for dancing to Cuban Music.  FYI – I’ve been talking to Julio in Vancouver and Mateo from Rock Salt and I helped them put together an event coming Friday Feb 4th with DJ Melao from Maimi here in Seattle @ Rock Salt. I am commited or .. better spoken smitten .. by Cuban Music and Dancing and for those of you who enjoy the same we are going to have a great year. !! Thanks again for your support.
