Tito Puente Jr.
Event on 2018-06-28 20:00:00

The comparison is inevitable. How could it be otherwise? Tito Puente Jr. carries his father with him imprinted on his physical being and locked in his soul. Its in his looks, his joy, and his music. Tito, Jr. is on a passionate mission. The younger Puente is determined to nurture the musical legacy left by his father. He refuses to let his father become a distant memory. He was just too vibrant, too exciting. There was magic in the music my father made. It made people happy all over the world.He has found captive audiences who echo his passion. Crowds lured to a venue by the father are returning to see the son — and to once again participate in the high voltage celebration that takes place on stage.Tito Puente, Jr. has become an audience favorite in casinos, performing arts centers, symphony halls and jazz festivals worldwide, performing more than 300 shows over the past 5 years. His 2004 album, In My Fathers Shoes featured the classic Puente titles and was spun into a BET Jazz television special of the same name. He was seen in a tribute to his fathers music on NBCs two hour special–The Apollo at 70: A Hot Night in Harlem. He has also appeared on the ABC soap opera hit One Life to Live in performance with his big band.Symphony appearances include Dallas, San Antonio, Colorado, South Bend, and upcoming performances with the Palm Desert Symphony and the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marvin Hamlisch.Tito, Jr.s new CD release, Got Mambo? is a mixture of the old and the new as he takes a musical departure into some powerful new music he can truly call his own. Guest artists Bobby Cruz and Hansel & Raul help make this a coming of age project for Puente, Jr. and the album is receiving heavy praise from Tropical and Latin Jazz critics alike. Tito Jr. reveres the magnificent, lasting impact his father had on our musical lives. People who dont know anything about Latin music know my father and people always, always smile when they say my fathers name, he confides. That is a very special gift I have been given. Tito, Jr. lives in South Florida and has two children, Miranda and Antonio.

Ray Prim: Ray Prim is a Singer Soulwriter based in Austin, Texas. His music takes you back to the days when songs were inspiring, meaningful and thought provoking. His tunes are melody-based short stories that anyone can related to and identify with. It only takes one of his many songs to be instantly hooked. Five words sums it up – Ear Candy for the Soul..

“the artist Prim has most reminded me of since I first saw him and his group a year ago is Alejandro Escovedo, the longtime Austin performer who moved to Dallas last year. That’s not to say their music is anything alike, really: Prim is his own artist, in the same way indie-rock great Spoon is different than 1980s local alt-rockers the Reivers who preceded them, and Gary Clark Jr. is more than a modern blues-rock version of Stevie Ray Vaughan.” – Peter Blackstock, Austin 360 (Sep 17, 2017)

American Dreamer: American Dreamer is an orchestral folk ensemble from Austin, TX. While stepped in both folk and classical music, we strive to create a sound that is not precisely either; in hopes of exploring the space in between them. American Dreamer’s music offers layered harmonies, stirring textures, and rich counterpoint.

““Open Your Eyes” is an orchestral folk gem that begs you to do just that; the song starts slow and washes you over with waves of strings and acoustic guitar that are will make you swoon. The vocals are breathy and delicate as the instrumentation, soft and welcoming as the track starts to warm up. All in all, it’s a gorgeous number and I’m going to be getting lost in it for the rest of the day at the very least.” Nicole Baumann – Austin Town Hall

A few nice radio station images I found:

Best Wishes Scoopy

Scoopy History

On Sept. 4 1943, Bee readers were greeted by two cartoon figures on Page 1. One was a bee waving a newspaper, the other a bee talking into a radio microphone. In between was a photo of the world famous animator Walt Disney.

Anxious "to lend personality and a familiar identity to all the products" of the McClatchy company, an accompanying article explained, Eleanor had approached Disney about creating some logos. Disney, who did not ordinarily accept commercial work outside his own studio, agreed to take on the assignment if the company would donate ,500 to the Army Relief Fund.

Eleanor agreed, and thus was born Scoopy (the newspaper bee) and Gaby (the radio bee). Scoopy would come to adorn the frontpage mastheads of all three papers, while Gaby was used on radio station promotional material.

Over the years, staff artists added – with Disney’s permission — Flutey (for the company’s FM stations), and Teevy, (for the television stations.) At least eight other variations of the character have appeared periodically over the years to celebrate various holidays or mark company promotions, or been used on company merchandise.

Each of the Bee newspapers also owns a life-size Scoopy costume which is donned to make public appearances.
