Mr. Vallenato at Commerce Casino – September 10, 2010

Commerce Casino was on fire when Mr Vallenato took over on the night of September 10th. What a treat to see Los Angeles City’s King of the Accordion. What a treat it was to see Mr. Vallenato master the keys of an instrument that he played with more soul that I’ve ever beared witness to.

This fantastic cumbia party left everyone with aching feet and sore hips from an endless night of dancing and grooving to such an amazing group of musicians. Mr. Vallenato was surrounded by four beautiful accordions with which he played his remarkable solos creating surges of applause and cheers from the crowd.

I look forward to seeing Mr. Vallenato again, I don’t think I could ever get enough of his delicious rhythms.
