Beat mail.

I have been living in central Florida for the past six years, since my husband's retirement. There are many retired former South-Bronxites here with a craving for the old Latin sounds, but we would settle for good new Latin sounds. My girlfriend and her husband called the other day announcing that Joe Cuba , Larry Harlow and Johnny Pacheco were to be playing at the Orlando Civic Center on August 31. She heard this on the radio with a number to call for reservations. Well, needless to say, I quickly called and made reservations charging it to my Visa. Well, I just received a call from the promoter saying he had to cancel due to poor sales and he would send out a check at the end of the month (keepin' my fingers crossed).

My friend and I got to talking, we sort of wished there was a link on line somewhere where we could find out about future dances with the old good bands or/ new good bands. We would be willing to fly where it might be, say for a weekend, as long as we could know ahead of time. Do you have any ideas? It is too un-Latin in central Florida. Would appreciate your help. Gracias.

La historia musical de Eddie Palmieri comienza en el Barrio, en el apartamento de su tio. A la edad de 11 anos, Eddie Palmieri ya estaba tomando clases de piano con su maestra Margaret Bonds en un estudio del Carnegie Hall, el resto es historia y parte de esa historia se puede apreciar en los dos volumenes de los meses junio/julio y agosto de este ano 2002 en la mejor revista a nivel mundial, "Latin Beat". Como ya lo saben, soy Efrain Donaldson, tengo 22 anos de edad y animo a todos los jovenes a que lean la revista, tambien los animo a estudiar, a empaparse historicamente con la musica del pasado que es el fundamento de la musica actual. A traves del tiempo a lo que hoy se le llama SALSA ha perdido la pureza, honestidad, cultura, clase, etc y la mayor parte de mi generacion no tienen idea alguna del valor de la musica latina y su historia. Por eso una vez mas, animo a todos los jovenes, sin importar nacionalidad, a leer y aprender de la unica revista que sabe lo que hace, LATIN BEAT.

Could you mention my Michael Stuart Fan Club in your magazine? I have started this myself with my own money and I'm really hoping it will be a success. I believe that Michael Stuart is an amazingly talented singer and will be a legend one day. I've been waiting for somebody to create a club like this for him for a long time so finally I got tired of waiting and decided to do it myself. Following is my fan club website and the address of the club.
