The Sunrise Latin Jazz Band arrives this Thursday in the McLemore Songwriters Series


McLemore’s Songwriter Series on August 11 will close out the summer with an evening of high-energy classic melodies from Cuba, Venezuela, Puerto Rico and Brazil.

The Sunrise Latin Jazz Band will bring the sounds of the Buena Vista Social Club to the mountain with music that will inspire salsa and merengue for those in attendance.

The quartet is led by Lorenzo Molina on trumpet and is made up of musicians from Cuba, Venezuela and Puerto Rico. The result is a musical connection that showcases the perfect end to an August evening: the warm summer air, the singing of a trumpet, the rhythm of a conga and perhaps even the faint smell of cigars.

With only three performances remaining in this year’s Songwriter Series, audiences are encouraged to book early to ensure seating in the intimate venue above McLemore Cove.

“Each month McLemore delivers a different flavor of performance to enjoy,” said IV Whitman of McLemore. “The Sunrise Latin Jazz Band is one of our favorites and we are pleased to offer music that offers such a rich history and perspective that transcends South America. . We are extremely grateful to have the support of FirstBank as presenting sponsor throughout the series.

Tickets are $55 each and can be purchased by visiting the Sunrise Latin Jazz Band Eventbrite page. Additionally, McLemore’s The Creag Restaurant is also open to provide food and drink options for the evening. To make a reservation, visit:
