On January 14 at 8 p.m., be ready to salsa, merengue, and mambo! Tito Puente Jr. promises to have the Danbury Palace audience on their feet with his hot jazz and passionate Latin beats. The Danbury Palace Theater is located on 165 Main Street just minutes off I-84.
By birthright and by virtue of his own talent, Puente has helped bring the Latin sound to a new generation of listeners. While nurturing the musical legacy left by his percussion superstar father, known as the "King of Latin Music," Puente has put his own modern spin on salsa, merengue, and mambo.
The comparison is inevitable. It's in his looks, his joy, his music. No doubt, every time Tito Jr. walks on stage - he walks in his father's footsteps.
When Tito Puente Sr died in 2000, his son launched a mission to preserve and promote the music by performing original Puente arrangements, with his own flavor added in. "There was magic in the music my father made. It made people happy, all over the world. My goal is to keep it alive, and in doing so, expose it to a whole new generation."
Crowds once lured to a venue by the father's magic have returned to enjoy the son -- participating once again in the high voltage celebration that takes place on stage. This vibrant entertainer wows audiences with his unique musical style and passionate performance.
