¡VAYA! 63 Led by renowned percussionist, composer, arranger, and educator Bobby Sanabria, the 21-piece multi-Grammy-nominated Multiverse Big Band has been hailed by DownBeat magazine as a “force of nature.” Uniquely known for its versatility, the orchestra can seamlessly transition from complex concert repertoire to swinging big-band dance music. On the heels of the Grammy-nominated West Side Story Reimagined double CD, Bobby Sanabria and his Multiverse Big Band will pay tribute to the mecca of all Latin dance halls, the legendary Palladium Ballroom, where the fusion of big-band mambo and jazz reigned supreme. Kick off the fifth season of ¡VAYA! 63, the Atrium’s popular Latin dance party, with this stellar band.
