Tony made reservations for the Buena Vista Social Club the day before. We entered a charming high ceiling restaurant bar. To our delight we were taken right to the front of the room directly across from the band in our reserved seats. The famous band members entered the room to step in front of the microphones just inches from us and began to take us on a jazz journey like no other. Several of our tour members were seated around us as Tony and I sat mesmerized to the talented charismatic singers and players. Drums, trumpets, keyboards and backup singers belted out the traditional club music. A lovely female dancer appeared with a cute male dancer both costumed in dance outfits and began to salsa and sing. As they twirled around us the male dancer filled my hair up in a sassy move! We all started laughing and cheering. Maria and I were invited to jump up and dance and of course we did, we are seasoned dance partners now! Then we were all led around the room in a conga line singing and dancing to the beat. It was a memory making experience that I will dream of for years to come.
