Mambo Kings

The Mambo Kings return to the Hochstein at High Falls stage with their infectious Latin jazz. 

The Hochstein at High Falls lunchtime summer concert series returns to the city’s High Falls District with the sounds of local music every Thursday, June 9 through August 10. The Mambo Kings perform on Thursday, August 4, 2022 at 12:10 p.m. at the Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge.

The concerts are hosted by WXXI Classical’s Mona Seghatoleslami. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch. Each performance will run approximately 40 minutes. 

Together since 1995, the Mambo Kings are enjoying great success as Upstate New York’s foremost Latin jazz ensemble, and have earned a national reputation for their explosive blend of Afro-Cuban rhythms and jazz improvisation. They have appeared in Pops concerts with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, at the Rochester International Jazz Festival, and with orchestras in Baltimore, Vancouver, Detroit, Dallas, Naples (FL), Portland (OR), Alabama, Chicago, Austin, Virginia, and Buffalo. The band consists of Mambo Kings’ musical director and pianist Richard DeLaney, percussionist Freddy ColĂłn, saxophonist John Viavattine, bassist Hector Diaz, and percussionist Tony Padilla. www.mambokingdom.com
