Eastwood has the poignant distinction of being the site of the last concert performed by a most beloved singer, Robert Goulet, who died this past Tuesday of pulmonary fibrosis. You may remember that he gave a concert, “The Man and His Music,” at the Palace Theatre on September 20. Continue reading Robert Goulet’s last concert: at the Palace Theatre

I’m biased about this group, I have to admit. Dave and I love Latin rhythms, we love to dance, and Grupo Pagán plays some of the hottest, most “danceable” music you’ll hear in Syracuse. They play most frequently at the Dinosaur these days, but you can catch them at many festivals and some other venues throughout the year. Now is your chance to hear them here in Eastwood, and maybe catch your walkable blogger dancing her feet off!
From the Grupo Pagán website:
The CD has been mastered by Rich Breen and is ready for release. We are very excited and feel very blessed. Rich has won Grammys for his engineering and has worked with The Yellowjackets, Nora Jones, Sheryl Crow, Michael Jackson, Bill Evans, and the Rolling Stones to name a few. The CD, which was produced by Legendary Yellowjackets bassist Jimmy Haslip, contains guest performances by world renowned artists Eric Marienthal, Katisse Buckingham, Mikanic, and Emedin Rivera.
Please come join Grupo Pagan and special guests Mikanic, The S.U. Brazilian Ensemble, and Brian Bromka’s La Familia Salsa Dancers for a fun-filled exciting evening of Latin, South African, and Brazilian rhythms as we hold a festival to celebrate the release of our debut recording ‘Save The World’.
