A new, intimate Latin & World Music Venue in New York’s Meatpacking District.

Preview Event With Jose “Pepito” Gomez on Friday, November 21.

José “Pepito” Gómez’s “ beneficent alarm” (The New York Times) of a voice has carried him on a fast track from playing with local bands in his hometown of Camagüey, Cuba to becoming lead singer of Maravilla de Florida, Charanga Latina Orchestra and Habana Ensemble, respectively. He’s toured with the late Compay Segundo of the Buena Vista Social Club and was a lead singer of the Cuban megaband, Pupy y Los Que Son Son, before moving to the U.S. Backed by a powerhouse ensemble of NYC’s Cuban all-stars, he moves from heart-wrenching romantic ballads to high-octane traditional ­arrangements, replete with torrents of improvisations and frenzy-inducing call-and-response. Gomez has performed at sold out venues worldwide including Carnegie Hall, The Fillmore, Jackie Gleason Theatre in Miami, Yoshi’s in Oakland, Calif., and the Havana Film Festival in New York. His sextet will perform a true homage to the Buena Vista Social Club’s beautiful music!
