Come to a night of great salsa music at B.B. King Blues Club, featuring the sounds of Pequeno Johnny & The NY Cartel, Boricua Legends, and Son de Tikizia!

Little Johnny Rivero is a legendary conguero, percussionist, producer, songwriter, and bandleader who performed with La Sonora Poncena for 16 years, traveling the world and making 18 highly respected albums with the band. Rivero currently plays with nine-time Grammy winner Eddie Palmieri and heads up the NY Cartel. His performance is guaranteed to bring home the driving force of nothing but hardcore salsa. Dancers get ready!

Boricua Legends, featuring master timbalero Endel Dueno direct from Puerto Rico, round out tonight's performance. It will be a true delight to have this legendary "Encyclopedia of the Timbales" onstage with this group. Under the musical guidance of Pedro "Pocholo" Segundo and vocalist Luisito Ayala, Boricua Legends have been a force since the release of their first single "Que Humanidad" in 2011.

Direct from Costa Rica comes Son De Tikizia. Under the musical direction of Walter Flores, who has won four Grammy Awards producing with Ruben Blades and Alfredo Poveda, this powerhouse young and vibrant group brings its brand of hardcore salsa to the mecca of salsa music: New York City. Having toured Europe with Ruben Blades and Cheo Feliciano, Jimmy Bosch, and many more, these youngsters have set their sights on the world. With two albums titled Salsa Retro and Pa' los pies under its belt, this group has shown its determination to make its mark on the scene.

Venue Description: A throwback to the fabled days of New York nightclubs, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill features top-caliber music stars and an American Continental menu with a Southern flair. The Showcase Room has video screens and state-of-the-art sound, table seating, a bar where you can snack and listen, and a dance floor.
