Pacific Mambo Orchestra

Join us at the Osher Marin JCC for a multi-cultural night of great music, food, and dancing under the stars!

The Pacific Mambo Orchestra is a Latin flavored orchestra full of celebration and celebrity. Now in their tenth year, PMO finally gained well-overdue recognition in 2014, when their crowd-funded, self-titled, debut album took home the GRAMMY for Best Tropical Latin Album. No newcomer to the big band circuit, they have performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Montreux Jazz Festival, Stern Grove Jazz Jazz Festival, The Aspen Jazz Fest, and many more. They are a popular orchestra that recently sold out their run at Yoshi’s Jazz Club in Oakland, California. The 20-piece orchestra is comprised of the Bay Area’s top talent featured with iconic names like Poncho Sanchez, Pete Escovedo, Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock or Prince.

Start the evening at 6:30 with free salsa lessons, then strut your stuff on the outside dance floor, or just sit back, breathe in the fresh air, and enjoy the party and people watching!
