Janne Haavisto & The Shubie Brothers
Thu 24.8. 19:00
Latin Big Band Fun! The group headed by Sergio Mendoza delightfully fuses together music styles from both sides of the USA-Mexico border: merengue, rumba, ranchera and cumbia mix with tex mex and tejano.
Born in Mexico, Mendoza crossed the border at the age of 8 and is currently one of the biggest influences in Arizona’s versatile music scene. Mendoza has been a major figure in, for example, the state’s number one band Calexico’s desert noir style and Mexico’s throbbing indie scene, for example, as a background force in Mexrrissey, who charmed the audience last year at Huvila.
Mendoza labels his own band’s style as “indie mambo” and is famous for their wild Latin parties: Cuban rhythms, percussion, harmonicas and horns are, at times, boosted by the infectious beat from drum machines.
The evening kicks off with drummer Janne Haavisto and his new band The Shubie Brothers. Haavisto is best remembered from the cult band Laika & The Cosmonauts and for his long collaboration with J. Karjalainen.
The Shubie Brothers starts at 7 pm. Orkesta Mendoza starts at 8.45 pm.
Doors: 5.30 pm.
For this event you can purchase a snack by Restaurant Juuri beforehand!
