BIG THANKS

26 11 2019

BIG THANKS to EVERYONE who came on Saturday to support the Latin Quarter Charity night with the fantastic live band Son Sabroso @ The Friary. Special thanks to those that came from further afield too.. Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Manchester ! etc, there were about 125 people who attended.

We raised a total of £869 (after all outgoings) which is great, for the Azul Wasi project in Peru, home for former street children. Many thanks to the 2 sponsors of the evening, A&J Stephen (Builders) Ltd and Wilson Construction (Perth) Ltd, and big thanks to the Bepoke Bar Company who provided free bar hire. Big thanks to Audiowave, Mitch, Louise & Denni for sound, The Friary, SAS advertising for free run of advertising & Grouchos, Vanessa & Fiona for ticket sales. Many thanks to Patrick, Pawel & Pamela for doing the door on the night and to Pawel for printing the lovely table information and to Tom Jolly who couldn’t be with us but made up the lovely Azul Wasi courier update on the tables (attached).

MASSIVE thanks to Son Sabroso for bringing some latin spirit to warm us up on a rainy Dundee night with their great music & vocals and party atmosphere.

Would also like to thank those who helped on the night with the raffle and for all the raffle donations : thanks to Achray Farm Air bnb, The Peruvian Restaurant, V&A museam, Parcari Chocolates, Clara for the Balinese Massage & Johan for the massage vouchers, Sol y Sombra, Fiona M and to everyone else who gave donations. Next time there are lots of prizes we will pre draw & let you collect rather than call them all out, so more dancing time !

Hope to see you at the next social : Festive Mixed Latin Night- Dec 7th @ The Gate, Dundee.

BIG THANKS

2 10 2018

BIG thanks to everyone who came on Saturday to the Friary , it was a great night, very busy, just over 180 folks in the room I think including the band & bar staff.  We raised £1,241 ( including the donation of £100 from A & J Stephen Builders) for the Azul Wasi project in Peru ( after outgoings which are just under £1120 to put the event on).  This is a FANTASTIC amount to help towards the new shower and toilet block at Azul Wasi.

So big thanks to everyone who brought along friends/ family and to those who kindly donated all the raffle prizes too. Also thanks to all those who helped on the night and before the event with posters etc.

Information about Son al Son.

The band Son al Son was formed in 2008. Its line-up is made up of musicians from Latin America and Scotland.  As the name suggests, Son al Son play son, a style of music made popular in 1920’s Havana and more recently in the film “Buena Vista Social Club”. To this day, songs like Chan Chan, El Cuarto De Tula and Dos Gardenias are played in cafes and bars across Cuba.

Son al Son have added songs from La Excelencia, Cubanismo along with original compositions,Juanito,Cimarron and Morena bring  a more‘salsa dura’ (hard salsa!) feel to their set. Along with the ‘traditional’ songs (with a salsa twist!) and the modern salsa songs,we’re sure Son al Son will get your feet tapping and out of your seat in no time, Gozar! Enjoy!
