Cuban-themed concert event Wednesday

DOWNEY – Downey’s rooftop concert series in Downtown Downey will draw to a close Wednesday with “Havana Nights,” a Cuban-themed concert that begins at 7 p.m. on the top floor of the downtown parking structure. La Charanga Cubana, a 10-piece Cuban band, will perform while accompanied by a salsa dance show. Professional salsa dancers will offer basic salsa lessons during intermission.

David Gonzalez, former radio personality on Radio Unica, will serve as master of ceremonies.

Porto’s Cafe and KMR Gourmet are catering the event, and Gavina brand products will be available for sampling, including Cafe La Llave Espresso-based drinks (cappucino, latte and espresso shots) and drip coffee.

There will also be a community art exhibit, a Cuban memorabilia vendor, and more.

The event is free and open to the public.
