Dance Performances and Lessons from The Salsa Room
There is only one premier salsa venue in the D.C. area--The Salsa Room--where the best salsa bands, DJs, instructors and of course hottest salsa dancers gather.
Formerly known as Cecilia’s, the club consistently features live performances by international Latin artists. Since 1991, legendary salsa artists such as Marc Anthony, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Frankie Ruiz, Tito Rojas, Oscar D’León, Victor Manuelle and numerous others have performed on our stage.
In 2008, the club's name was changed to The Salsa Room (TSR) to reflect the growing demand from D.C.'s salsa community.
There will be salsa performances at 2:15PM by SAOCO, 3:15PM by Karen Aguilar and Antonio Williams, and 4:15PM by Cecilia Villalobos and Earl Rush with lessons to follow each performance.
Live Musical Performances
Marshall Keys Quartet:
Marshall Keys and his group represent as high a level of musicianship as can be found anywhere. They interpret music in many of it forms--from contemporary to funky and to some of the hardest swinging jazz you'll ever hear. He has worked with many of the world's best purveyors of jazz and blues including: Jimmy McGriff, Jimmy Scott, Lionel Hampton, Keter Betts, Clark Terry, Jimmy Heath, Groove Holmes, and Jimmy Witherspoon. He has played at festivals in the US, Germany, Ireland, Holland, Mexico, Indonesia, The Virgin Islands and was a featured performer on the 17th Annual Norway Jazz Cruise, the East Coast Jazz Festival and most recently the Duke Ellington Jazz Festival in Washington, DC.
Marshall has received a National Endowment for the Arts grant and was commissioned by the Smithsonian to perform the works of Wayne Shorter. He has enjoyed two collaborations with Mexican jazz pianist Juan Jose Calatayud at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington, DC and at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach California. He has toured Central and South American twice for the State Department as a Jazz Ambassador and in May of 2005 traveled to Guinea, West Africa to perform and lecture on the history of jazz in the US.
Reginald Cyntje & the DC Jazz Collaborative:
Nasar Abadey - drums
Herman Burney - bass
Allyn Johnson - piano
Brian Settles - tenor sax
Victor Provost - steel pan
Reginald Cyntje - trombone
Reginald Cyntje absorbed the sounds of calypso, reggae, and other African influenced music which now give his trombone playing a personal approach to jazz. In 1993 he began to study jazz trombone at the Berklee College of Music and performed with well-know artists such as Roy Hargrove, Bill Pierce, Phil Wilson, and later at Howard University with Bobby McFerrin.
Reginald Cyntje leads his own groups to include the Reginald Cyntje Group and the DC Jazz Collaborative. He has performed and/or recorded with Nasar Abadey, Amiri Baraka, Ron Blake, Michael Bowie, Herman Burney, Marc Cary, George Duke, Illinois Jacquet Orchestra, Sean Jones, Todd Marcus Jazz Orchestra, Pedro Martinez, Rene' McLean, New Life Jazz Orchestra, Dion Parson and the 21st Century Band, Victor Provost, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Reuben Rogers, Vanessa Rubin, Terrell Stafford, Gary Thomas, Dr. Billy Taylor, Myron Walden, Andrew White, Bruce Williams, Larry Willis and other fine musicians. In addition to mentorship on the bandstand, Cyntje studied with many trombonists to include the great Steve Turre. In concert he paints a colorful musical landscape that takes you from drinking your favorite wine at an elegant jazz club to enjoying a daiquiri on a beautiful Caribbean beach.
Trio Caliente blends together various musical elements from traditional and modern Latin music with contemporary jazz arrangements. The trio produces music that seamlessly fuses together elements of Bossa Nova, gypsy rumba and contemporary flamenco with soothing jazz vocals and musical arrangements. Benner and Bard have previously been featured on several TV and radio shows (including NPR’s “All Things Considered”) and written up in the Washington Post and Jazz Times, as well as having toured extensively throughout South America, the Middle East, Spain and Portugal.
