We are family! Memo Acevedo and his daughter Jacquelene have been making a buzz around the world and we’re excited to welcome their 10-piece band, Manhattan Bridges Orchestra, to Local 802. On drums and percussion, Memo combines the diversity of Latin styles with the classic sound of bebop, a mixture that he calls “global jazz.” Memo has performed with major artists and bands, including his mentor, the late Tito Puente, as well as Stephen Stills, Tom Scott, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Dave Valentin, Joss Stone, Frankie Valli, Moacir Santos, Mark Murphy, Cachao, Irakere and Klimax, and many others.

Join us on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 5 p.m. at Local 802 in the club room. Come relax between gigs and enjoy live music! Your donations will support the Local 802 Musicians’ Emergency Relief Fund, which helps musicians in need.
