The Easter Extravaganza – 3 promoters, 1 event & 1 vision – The Ultimate Easter Weekender

Back in 2000, we brought over our mentor and teacher, Mr Eddie Torres – The Mambo King himself, to the UK for acountrywide masterclass tour that would truly transform the UK scene from that point on. As part of the tour we factored in 14 dates at venues across the UK and, in London, we teamed up with Robert & Jean White of the newly formed Mambocity to lay on an event at Bootsy Brogans in Wembley.

Since then our companies have worked together on a number of events including the Salsa Showdown event in 2001 (where Descarga Latina, Santo Rico & Alma Y Sabor debuted what went on to become the globally famous LATIN MADNESS show). So, it was only fitting that we get together in our anniversary year, and rope in another colleague we have known for well over 10 years – Tony Lara of iLoveBachata, when we were thinking of organising something truly special. The result is THE LONDON LATIN EASTER EXTRAVAGANZA which will take place (guess when..) across the Easter weekend.
