It’s that time of year again where the biggest Latino artists get together to celebrate the biggest party of the year. The king of Latin radio Polito Vega knows how to throw a party and he has been the voice of New York radio for decades. This time he is getting together with the biggest of the biggest including none other than Mr. Worldwide Pitbull and the queen Jennifer Lopez.
Alongside these artists you will also get to see a reunion of Los Hermanos Rosario, Toño Rosario, Grupo Mania and Elvis Crespo. Salsa will be catered by the talented Victor Manuelle, La India and Domingo Quiñones. And of course the Party would not be jumping if we didn’t have un poquito de Reggaeton with big names like Ivy Queen, Tego Calderon, Wisin and Vico C. Three new artists to look out for are Puerto Rican Bachata Singer Jay Ruiz, along with Mozart la Para and Messiah.
These are just a few of the artists who will perform at the World’s Greatest Arena Madison Square Garden on Wednesday October 28, 2015.
TICKETS are going from as low as $21.00 – $300.00
The first thing Jay Z‘s Roc Nation seemed to grasp when they added the Roc Nation Sports division was the Latino demographic. Their first signings implied this, with Football Player Victor Cruz of the New York Giants, Rusney Castillo of the Boston Red Sox and Robinson Cano, first with the Yankees and now in Seattle. In the Boxing arena, Miguel Cotto was the chosen one.
It was apparent at the Barclay’s Center that Roc Nation Sports recognizes timing. By getting Miguel Cotto WBC 160 pound defense against Daniel Geale to be the official kickoff event for the Puerto Rican Day Parade festivities they were able to use it to aid in selling out the Brooklyn arena.
Roc Nation are also not afraid to unleash their top guns as well. They set up the main event with a performance of four songs from their Grammy-nominated artist Big Sean. They also brought in Angie Martinez “The Voice of New York” to host the event. On the DJ booth, we got Lobo from La Mega.
The draw of this quality event brought Latino celebrities like Bernie Williams, Residente from Calle 13 and Rosie Perez, a big boxing fan. Oscar De La Hoya was in attendance as well. Roc Nation deals in quality and as Roc Nation Sports, which has quite a few boxers signed, continues to put on events Latinos and Boxing will surely benefit from.

International superstar Pitbull met his match in Orlando, as he unveiled his new wax figure for Madame Tussauds in Orlando on Friday, May 29 at the attraction’s new location at I-Drive 360, the entertainment and dining destination on International Drive.
“I’m ready to see my figure! Looking back, it was a great experience to sit with the Madame Tussauds artists who worked hard to capture every detail,” said Pitbull. “Having been born and raised in Florida, it truly is an honor to have this figure in Orlando.”
The boy band known as Menudo that caught the imagination of young Puerto Rican girls on the island, and especially in New York City, when they would make their yearly appearance, could only be compared to that of The Beatles arriving.
There were usually five members and when their voices started to mature or they became of age they would be replaced for younger talent. The original five that put Menudo on the map were Ricky Melendez, Miguel Cancel, Rene Farrait, Johnny Lozada, Ray Reyes and Charlie Masso.
They reached their apex in the early 80’s with a cross-over English album and with the addition of Ricky Martin and later Robby Rosa, the first U.S. born Puerto Rican member. But it was the original five that caught the imagination of the home island.
They will be performing at the Beacon Theatre on July 17th of this year. This is a continuation of a series of comeback performances that started in 1998 when the first reunion of the originals took place.
This concert will mark the first New York City performance in 17 years. It will be a nostalgic evening as the band will sing past favorites like “Claridad”, “Por Amor”, “Quiero Ser”, “Voulez Vous”, “Fuego”, “Y Yo No Bailo”, “Subete a Mi Moto” and “Si Tu No Estas”. The songs that were personal anthems for pre-teen Puerto Ricans in the early 80’s will be revived for this one-time event.
