Kenny Ellis is perfectly at home performing at a Catskill’s resort, The Copacabana, The Improv, the Miami Beach club scene, a kibbutz, army camp or the national radio in Israel – or the stage in any synagogue here or abroad. With early career years spent working his way through the New York performing arts scene, from Broadway to upstate, Ellis counts singing with Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach z”l at the Roosevelt Hotel as one of the highlights of his career.

Ellis is most well known for his 2005 Hanukkah Swings CD, still a consistent top seller in its category on Amazon Music. “Part of my life’s work has been discovering new entertaining avenues to show what Jewish life can be. [The CD] is a celebration of Jewish life and music, not just for people of our culture and faith, but for everybody,” Ellis says of this work.

When he’s not performing or teaching, the Philadelphia-born Ellis serves as the cantor at Temple Beth Ami in Santa Clarita, CA (Los Angeles area), where he has worked since 2010. Prior to Temple Beth Ami, he was the cantor at Temple Beth Haverim in Agoura Hills, CA for 15 years.

Newburgh, NY – Tito Puente Jr. carries his father with him – imprinted on his physical being and locked in his soul. It’s in his looks, his joy, his music. No doubt, every time Tito Jr. walks on stage – he walks in his father’s footsteps. Now, on Saturday, May 11, 2019, Tito takes the stage of the Historic Green Room in Newburgh’s Ritz Theater. 

The Tito Puente Jr. Latin Jazz Ensemble, with special guests the Mexican Dance Band Mariachi Aquila y Plata along with dancers from Beacon’s Dojo Dance Company, will be performing at a special benefit Dance Party/Concert on Saturday, May 11 at 8 p.m. in the Historic Green Room at Newburgh’s Ritz Theater (107 Broadway, Newburgh, NY 12550).  Proceeds benefit SAFE HARBORS OF THE HUDSON. Puente plans to shake up the audience with all the excitement of a night at the New York Palladium. The Puente name is synonymous with Latin music, especially in the dance-oriented sub-genres of mambo, cha-cha, and salsa, but also in the jazz world.
 “My father’s big band arrangements from the 1940s and 1950s brought the horn sections and combined them with the Afro-Cuban sounds of the conga, timbale and the bongo. For many listeners, the gateway into the musical world of Puente was through the song “Oye Como Va.” Originally released in 1963, it was picked up and recorded by guitarist Carlos Santana in 1970. The popularity of the song helped boost both his and Santana’s careers.
 
Now, the 45-year-old son is on a mission to bring his father’s music to the world, music that vibrates at the intersection of big-band jazz and Latin rhythms. To do this music justice, you can’t skimp on the horns: Puente’s orchestra includes baritone, tenor and alto sax, one or two trombones and two trumpets. “That’s something that’s lacking today,” he notes. “They don’t have that power of the brass section.” A five-piece rhythm section, with conga, timbales, bass, piano and trap set, completes the ensemble.

The Mexican Dance band Mariach Aquila y Plata is a crowd favorite, performing Mexican classics as well as dance favorites, while dancers from the Dojo Dance Company will be giving a pre-concert dance lesson in Mambo and Salsa and dancing during the concert as well with willing audience members.
