On Saturday, February 4th we are very excited to announce that the live music will be provided by Sabor De Mi Cuba.

At each monthly party we want to celebrate the birthdays of everyone born in that month. Contact us in advance if your birthday is in February and we’ll put you on the guest list (just be sure to bring your ID).

The venue is the main ballroom at the Lake Merritt Dance Center which is a PERFECT venue for dancing — an amazing hardwood dance floor with lots of space to dance, beautiful decor, and a stage for live music.



A protégé of Cuban conga legend Luis “Changuito” Quintana, Havana-born Carlitos Medrano has played an important role on the Bay Area’s Latin music scene over the past decade.

After several years as a sought-after sideman, he launched Sabor De Mi Cuba, a band dedicated to playing original Cuban Dance Music.

The band’s debut album, released in 2012, boasts a book of Medrano’s finely wrought original tunes, and the talent-packed Sabor De Mi Cuba features many of the Bay Area’s best Cuban musicians — Sulkary Valverde (vocal), Julio de la Cruz (piano), Ernesto Mazar (bass), Colin Douglass (drums), Carlos McCoy (sax & flute), Mayombe Cruz (güiro), Carlitos Medrano (percussion).
