The Susie Hansen Latin Band will headline the next edition of the Valencia Jazz & Blues Concert Series at Westfield Valencia Town Center on Friday, July 5, carrying on the Fourth of July weekend celebration.
Electric violinist and vocalist Susie Hansen plays fiery Latin jazz and salsa, creating music that brings audiences to their feet, dancing in the aisles. Hansen can solo as if her bow was afire.
“It’s a sizzling, swinging salsa band that you don’t want to miss,” said Barbara Myler, owner/producer of the Valencia Jazz & Blues Concert Series.
In addition to great music, the concert series’ dance sponsors, D’Wilfri Dance & Entertainment, will bring their talented Latin Dance troupe to perform, followed by informal dancing instruction with our audience.
Admission to all series concerts is free.
