The 2019 Yerba Buena Gardens Festival begins on Saturday, May 4 at 1:00pm with Tribute to Charlie Palmieri by The Uprising All-Stars led by music director Jimmy Bosch, the definitive salsa trombonist of his generation.
Charlie Palmieri, the older brother of Latin music legend Eddie Palmieri, was a progressive force on the New York Latin music scene from the moment he joined Tito Puente’s band at the Copacabana in 1947 until his death at the age of 60 in 1988.
Featuring the Uprising All-Stars, the production combines New York’s finest purveyors of Latin dance music with world-class Bay Area talent including trombonist Doug Beavers, conguero Little Johnny Rivero, bongo master Karl Perrazo, and vocalist Frankie Vasquez.
From May 4 to October 27, the Yerba Buena Gardens Festival will present over 100 free music, theater, circus, dance, poetry, and children’s programs with artists from the Bay Area and around the world.
Yerba Buena Gardens is located between Mission Street and Howard Street and 3rd and 4th Streets in downtown San Francisco.
