For Fans Of Retro Salsa & Cumbia

Fellow Amoebite Ray Ricky Rivera & I are always talking about old Salsa & Cumbia records. We both spin at various clubs where we play a bit of Salsa & Cumbia in our sets but not throughout the night. One day we thought, "Why not have a night at a club where all we play is that?"  Thus, Anda was born.
This is our opening night. Ray and I will be spinning selections from the Discos Fuentes, Fania, Tico, SAR, and Allegre labels. Also we will play some great music from obscure South American, Mexican & Central American groups from the 70's & 80's.

We will have a performance by the best Cumbia/Vallenato group in L.A. right now, Buyepongo. On top of all that, there is no cover charge.

We hope to have that dance floor moving. I think we should enforce the Midnight Star "No Parking On The Dance Floor" rule that night. Maybe we could have someone in a cop uniform go up to someone who's not dancing and say:

Excuse me, madam
You’re standing still in a no parking zone
You don’t get a move on that body
I’ll be forced to give you a ticket
So get with it

Ok, I'm real tired, because that was really funny to me.
