Latin Jazz in action!

ROLANDO OCHOA AND HIS FORMULA "8a"

ART IN THE PARK FESTIVAL OCTOBER 25, 2003 PLANTATION FLORIDA USA

Our musical group participated in this art festival as one of the many musical groups. We entertained the many visitors to this special venue event that is celebrated in the City of Plantation Florida. "Art in the Park was sponsored by "The Plantation Junior Women Club".

This was the 37th annual "Art in the Park" and it gathered more than 300 artists who showed their paintings, sculptures and various other crafts. This year it was also the golden anniversary celebration of the City of Plantation founded in 1953.

Formula "8a" was a hit with the crowd and provided a bit of "Latin" flavor to the event. Many participated in a "Conga Line' that ended the performance with a "bang".

Here are some of the pictures showing the different musicians that performed many Latin Jazz and Latin Favorites for the delight of all present.
