DJ Mauro’s Latin night tonight

By weeklyvolcano on September 1, 2007

Djmauroblog Nueva Era brings East Coast Latin, blues and R&B to Oh! Gallagher’s Saturday.

DJ Mauro has had a problem with his phone lately: it won’t stop ringing. People keep calling the DJ/Latin music promoter asking to be put on his VIP list for the show he’s bringing to Oh! Gallagher’s in Lakewood tonight.

But DJ Mauro’s fretting that there may not be enough space in the house for all those wanting tickets; the band is big enough that selling out of tickets seems imminent.

The band he’s bringing is East Coast band Nueva Era, and they’ll play the traditional Latin sound known as bachata live for the first time in Tacoma. Tradition is mixed with contemporary hip-hop sounds and Latin meringue beats, creating a melodic and rhythmic quality that makes them addictively easy to listen to.

Nueva Era will hit the Oh! Gallagher’s stage at midnight Saturday after DJ Mauro spins reggaeton, merengue, and salsa from 9 to 10 p.m., following which the band Miguelina Miguelina will play their merengue hip-hop blend from 11 p.m. to midnight, with Nueva Era hitting the stage at midnight. Tickets are $15, 9 to 10 p.m., and $20 from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.
