Sammy Figueroa and his producer partner Rachel Faro, in cooperation with jazz radio station WDNA 88.9 FM, shall be curating a series of jazz concerts at the fabulous Faena Theatre in the Faena Hotel beginning March 2018. Artists will include pianist Christian Sands, Brazilian guitarist Chico Pinheiro, soul singer/songwriter Jarrod Lawson and Sammy's retro Cal Tjader tribute band Sally's Tomato.
This series originally began in September 2017 with the great young jazz vocalist Jazzmeia Horn but was cancelled due to Hurricane Irma and its subsequent damage to the theatre. Sammy, who will also m.c. the shows, is looking forward to returning to this luminous venue.
The Faena Hotel, which opened in 2015, is the hottest and most glamorous place in town. More than a hotel, the Faena District includes Faena Park, Faena Forum and Faena Bazaar. The hotel lobby, designed by Baz Luhrmannn, showcases art by Jeff Koons and Damien HIrst.
Inspired by Europe's grand opera houses and the glittering allure of Old Hollywood, the intimate gilded Faena Theatre provides a perfect venue for intimate showcases of jazz and dance artists. Please join Sammy if your are in town for this series of very special evenings.
