Latin Night with Lookie Lookie!
Lookie Lookie returns for a hot night of Latin music! Listeners who have heard Lookie play at the Dance Hall or elsewhere know that they put on an entertaining show full of irresistible melodies and rhythms, more than a dash of humor, and a warm, welcoming vibe. You don't need salsa skills to dance to BugalĂș - you can free form, rocknroll style, and  if you have them  use your best couple dancing moves.

Lookie Lookie plays Latin Bugalu, a crossover genre invented by Newyorican musicians in the 1960s. Incredibly fun and catchy, Bugalu lies somewhere between the stately Cuban sounds of the 50s and the manic high salsa of the 70s. Top artists included Pete Rodriguez, Joe Cuba and Ricardo Ray, whose tunes form the backbone of the band's repertoire. The band named for an early Ricardo Ray hit, "Lookie Lookie," which encapsulates some of the pan-American fusion that went into Bugalu.

Lookie is also delighted to have discovered the terminally obscure George Guzman, who made two LPs for the essential Latin record label Fania  and then disappeared. Lookie plays such Guzman gems as Banana Freak Out and Really Bad Scene."

Lookie Lookie is an all-star lineup of Boston music veterans. Music director Russ Gershon is a Grammy-nominated arranger for his work with the Either/Orchestra, and has played with Cab Calloway, the Four Tops, and Morphine among others; percussionist/vocalists Jorge Arce and Vicente Lebron are two of the grand men of Bostons Latin music scene; percussionist Rick Barry toured for years with Bim Skala Bim; percussionist Ken Winokur is one third of the Alloy Orchestra, world-reknowned silent film accompanists; saxophonist Ted DeColo has performed with Mighty Sam McLain and many others. Brand new bassist Edliio Bermudez has played with luminaries such Giovanni Hidalgo, Julio Iglesias and Celia Cruz; new trumpeter Eric Ortiz is a member of Boston RocknRoll Rumble winners Eddie Japan.

Along with playing, just about everybody in the band sings, in Spanish and English.
