Waterfront Warehouse Amphitheatre and Nena’s Mexican Restaurant will hosts the outdoor celebration for the Latin Magic Band’s 25th Anniversary on Saturday, September 20th at Waterfront Warehouse Amphitheatre, 445 W. Weber Avenue.
Percussionist Peter Castañon started the Latin Magic Band in 1989.
Castañon grew up in a family dedicated to musical entertainment. His mother, Lillian Martinez, performed with Perez Prado, Lino Rodriquez Orquestra, and numerous local artists. At ten years old, Peter had the opportunity to perform with his mother Lillian and stepfather Ernest Martinez in a hot Latino Band that was a 209 favorite. From that time on, he has performed locally and nationally with top name acts.
Latin Magic Band has opened for internationally acclaimed acts like Zapp, Teena Marie, War, Malo, Tito Puente, Gap Band, Tierra, Pete & Sheila Escovedo, and Con Funk Shun.
Latin Magic Band specializes in Cumbias, Oldies, Latin Rock, and Old School. Their music is energetic and moving and the band’s Latin spirit and soul literally moves people to the dance floor.
Doors open at 5pm with a comedy show beginning at 6pm followed by outdoor dancing, which will consist of a no-host bar and food
