Rest in Peace: A Tribute to Johnny Polanco

Wednesday, June 3, 2015

Johnny Polanco, a beloved salsa artist well known in Southern California and in the salsa dance world, died June 2nd 2015 from complications stemming from a recent heart attack.

He was a regular performer in San Diego and had some great shows as you can see from one of his past events in San Diego:

I had the opportunity to interview Johnny a few years ago (you can see it here) and I’m still in shock regarding his passing.  He was a great person with a real passion for salsa music.

Please pray for Johnny’s soul and his surviving family as they cope with his loss.

7th Annual All White Boat Party Presented by Sabor on the Bay Sets Sail June 13th!

Thursday, March 5, 2015

The 7th Annual All White Boat Party is set to launch on June 13, 2015 and if you’ve been on the cruise in the past you know what fun is in store for you again this year.

If you are new to the event,though, I can try to paint a picture of what you can expect.  The Inspiration Yacht (the largest of the vessels provided by Hornblower Cruises) will be jammed pack with 1,000 dancers ready to party the night away. Three dance floors will be available on the yacht with live salsa/bachata music, top 40 DJ’s spinning the best dance music and belly dance music as well.  The event has a dress in all white theme which in my opinion adds a touch of elegance to the affair, especially when most folks show up in really nice white suits or beautiful white dresses.

If you want to catch a glimpse of what this all looks like this video does a good job of giving you a brief preview:

Tickets always sell out for this event so it would be a good idea to buy your tickets now to avoid being left at the dock.

The San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup Group along with RitmoBello.com will be hosting a VIP table and we encourage you to visit us at the event.

For more information and find out how to purchase your tickets please visit the event page for the All White Boat Party (click here).

Thanks and see you all at the All White Boat Party!
