Looking for a little spice to heat up these cool autumn nights? Get out of your dorm room and down to the UPB-sponsored Spot Night at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, September 30 to shake, shake, shake alongside the king and queen of Cleveland salsa! The first jazz night at the Spot is going to be in full swing, so grab a partner and get ready to mambo.
Both Sammy DeLeon y su Orquestra and The Jackie Warren Trio are known in Cleveland for throwing some exotic shindigs when they get together. Both have roots in latin jazz, and interpret salsa, merengue, and mambo with their own unique twist. Sammy and Jackie have been performing in the Cleveland jazz scene for over ten years respectively. DeLeon blends traditional Latin rhythms with aggressive drumming on timbales.
Headlining is Jackie Warren, who has an incredibly impressive resume when it comes to the breadth of styles she performs on the piano. She has played with the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra along with greats like Solomon Burke and Clark Terry. She now routinely plays with a trio including Peter Dominguez on bass and Ron Godale on drums. Expect mostly merengue and salsa from Cleveland's Queen of Jazz.
This Jazz Night is perfect if you want to learn some new steps or just jam to a new style of music for the night. It's an opportunity to learn from some local greats for students interested in jazz, or maybe majoring in Spanish. iTe veo allÍ!

In Case You Missed It:
BLK JKS played with local band Signals Midwest opening up the show. General consensus was that both bands played "raw" sets. The crowd was mostly composed of friends of Signals Midwest and fans of BLK JKS. Both crowds enjoyed each other's sets and were able to not only get into Signal's punk-pop melodies and Blink-182 cover, but BLK JKS' African inspired indie rock. We not only got to get a taste of what's happening in the Johannesburg alt-music scene, but what's cookin' in good old Cleveland.
