Imperial Wharf Jazz Festival part 2.

As dusk fell over Imperial Wharf, YolanDa Brown started to play and a whole new crowd came in. She's a multi MOBO (Music Of Black Origin) award winner;

With an array of Saxophones and a radio mike, Yolanda filled the Wharf with her sound and a couple of times came out into the crowd as she played too.

Exciting stuff; if perhaps just a bit too smooth for me. The crowd loved her. And I mean they loved her. 
There'd been plenty of dancing during the day;

But by nightfall it was time for some real dancing.

It was time for Salsa;

I definitely couldn't get them all in, there really are twenty of them; the famed Roberto Plas and his twenty piece orchestra. 

This is the maestro himself on drums;

Leading his orchestra and singers from the front, it's very Latin;

Every so often he would be shouting, cajoling, pointing or poking with a drumstick;

Amazing sounds, absolutely amazing rhythms, did I mention there was dancing!

And suddenly it was all over. the end of a fabulous day.

Thank you Sharon for being there, for Manju and Girdeep and for all the boiled eggs and tuna salad sandwiches too!

And then I had this picture which I wasn't going to use because it didn't come out good (on my old pawn shop camera) but then I decided to use it any way.

It's YolanDa Brown's backing singers;
