Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concert: Johnny Colon

June 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

FREE

El Museo del Barrio, in collaboration with Carnegie Hall’s Neighborhood Concerts, presents salsa royalty and Latino music legend, Johnny Colon. Leader of the legendary Johnny Colon Orchestra and founder of the East Harlem Music School, he ascended the throne with his 1967 album, Boogaloo Blues, which popularized a sultry and swinging blend of R&B, soul, and mambo. He continues in his reign at the helm of his band, with soulful singing and smoking stints on percussion, piano, and trombone. With his most recent album, Keeping It Real, he puts his own unique spin on the Great American Songbook.

FREE ADMISSION. Seats are first to come, first served. No RSVP required.

Lead Support for Neighborhood Concerts is provided by the Howard Gilman Foundation. Additional support is provided by the A.L. and Jennie L. Luria Foundation.
