Aguanko's Latin Jazz Christmas in Havana - Jazz @ The Point

  • Tipping Point Theatre 361 East Cady Street Northville, MI, 48167 United States (map)


After nearly selling out all four Kittens & Crooners shows, we're excited to present our second live music series at the Tipping Point Theatre in downtown Northville -- Jazz @ The Point, presented by Financial Architects, Inc.

We've added a fifth show, kicking it all off with a special holiday event -- Latin Jazz Christmas in Havana with Aguanko -- on Wednesday, Dec. 21.

Conga player and composer Alberto Nacif and the superlative musicians who make up the sizzling Latin Jazz septet Aguanko are working on a new Latin Jazz recording which will be available in the Spring of 2017!  This recording will feature the core group, along with guest artists from the incredibly rich Detroit and Ann Arbor area Jazz scene performing original music which will further the trajectory of this exciting group.

These tasteful musicians’ interpretation of Alberto Nacif’s original music is evocative and sensuous, and true to its Cuban roots. Aguanko has received local and national attention, and their live concerts have dazzled capacity crowds at the multiple venues where they have performed. They are also able to offer educational lecture-demonstrations and instructional seminars.

Aguanko’s first recording, “Elemental“, released in 2013 was on the Jazzweek national charts for 32 weeks, their second release (“Invisible“) in 2015 was on the charts for 20 weeks!  The last release “Latin Jazz Christmas in Havana” which creatively turned Christmas standards into traditional Cuban music jewels.

The event features a wine tasting and appetizers from 7-7:45 p.m. and a two-set (8-9 p.m. and 9:20-10 p.m.) concert. Doors open at 7 p.m. (Due to licensing/insurance costs and to keep ticket prices the same, alcohol will not be for sale this series.)

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased by phone (248-347-0003); online here; or at the theatre box office (361 E. Cady Street, Northville, 48167).
