Open air concerts with stars from Cuba and New Orleans
Summer Jazz Weekend at Fulham Palace, hosted on the Palace lawns in partnership with the renowned 606 Club
Now in its third year the weekend's line-up offers two remarkable artists performing under the stars – from Cuba, the Sugar Kings and from New Orleans, Ms. Lillian Boutté.
The Sugar Kings
Friday July 16, 7.30pm, Main Lawn
Driven by the spirit of 1950s Cuba, the Sugar Kings present old school salsa with a fiery modern sound. Band leader Flavio Correa and Musical Director Ray Crespo pave the way for their dynamic and talented team to entertain with the music of Latin America. A hugely experienced eight piece band featuring both timbales and congas as well as violin, flute and of course vocals, this steaming band plays music that brings Cuba to life right here on the main lawn of the Palace. Perfect for lovers of Latin and Jazz alike.
