Join your friends at WSLR Community Radio for a Family Friendly New’s Years Eve Party featuring Renesito Avich, the David Smash Band, and The Dram. Last year’s popular hat-making station will be back so all party-goers will be able to fashion a unique topper. Attendees are invited to bring their own noisemakers for the Midnight Kumquat Drop. Special guests from the Rhythm Inlet will perform to welcome in the New Year at midnight.
Cuban-born Renesito Avich is a world-class tres player. He was the guitarist for the legendary band of Salsa “Elito Revé y su Charangón”, touring in Europe and America. He was musical director of the renowned Troubadour Eduardo Sosa and also participated as arranger and performer of his latest album “Mañanitas Montañas “ which was nominated for a Cubadisco Award in 2014. He is among the members of the ALL STAR project, “Buena Vista troubadours”, where he developed a successful tour of Caribbean countries as French Guyana, Martinique, Guadeloupe and Surinam.
With a blend of violin, keyboard, and distorted guitar, The Dram is an Americana six-piece that walks the line between punk and southern rock.
David Smash is a 21-year-old musical sensation from Lithuania. In school he specialized in classical guitar and piano, but he can also play the bass guitar, drums, xylophone, and harmonica. He write songs in blues, rock and roll, gospel, rock, country and jazz styles.
