TGIF July 15: Johnny Polanco & His Band

by The Editors on July 11, 2011

Johnny PCarlsbadistan’s Jazz In The Park gets spicy as it moves West to Poinsettia Park with the big band salsa sounds of Johnny Polanco y Su Conjunto Amistad.

As the fearless leader of the ultimate West Coast Latin party band, Polanco, who hails from the Caribbean by way of New York, serves as multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger for his band, Conjunto Amistad. Over the years the group has solidified its reputation for a sound described by Latin music chronicler Lina Lecaro as “the kind of infectious, rhythmic, multilayered Latin music that makes even the most timid wallflower abandon all restraint and give it a whirl on the dance floor.”

Sounds like exactly what we need as a finish for the week.
