Música en la Plaza favorite Manny Cepeda returns to the Center with his full orchestra for a live CD Release Party in our beautiful Lyric Court. Enjoy Manny’s 13-piece salsa band, in addition to special guests, and grab a drink or bite to eat while you dance the day away!
Performer percussionist, composer, singer and arranger Manny Cepeda has been making music all of his life. His cousin Modesto Cepeda got Manny his first drum at the age of five, and by the age of seven Manny was already performing professionally. Manny studied at the Puerto Rico’s “Escuela Libre de Musica”, the Pablo Casals Conservatory and attended under a scholarship to “Interlochen Music Camp” in Traverse City, Michigan. He graduated from Illinois State University, Ellington University in New Orleans and La Verne University in Naples, Italy.
Manny sings and performs with a fiery resonance that, combined with his catchy melodic songs and his classic salsa expressive vocals, capture his audiences whenever he performs. While he’s been compared to household names such as Hector LaVoe, Ray Ruiz, and Marc Anthony, Manny has the charismatic musical style all his own wherein his classic salsa genre and his distinct percussive “Soneo” style sparkle with memorable melodies.
Doors open at 2:45.
