Millpond Kickoff at the Easthampton River Valley Co-op with the Salsa Train Orquestra

Come out for a free show with The Salsa Train Orquestra at the Easthampton River Valley Coop at 6:30 p.m. to celebrate the announcement of the line-up for this year’s Millpond Series happening September 15th, 16th, and 17th at Millside Park in Easthampton. River Valley will be offering a spread of tasty treats from their kitchen as well including grilled quesadillas (choose cheese, jack fruit, or pulled pork), grilled street corn, and Mexican orange vanilla conchas. Vegan and gluten free options available. 

The Salsa Train Orquestra was formed in Springfield, Massachusetts in 2016 by Carlos Clinton who started playing music as a child in New York City. Carlos’s first instrument was the trombone. Soon after, he discovered percussion and learned to play the Congas, Bongos, and anything else he could beat on. Growing up in Brooklyn in the 1960’s, Carlos listened to some of the greats of Salsa music including Willie Colon, Ray Barretto, LeBron Brothers, and the Fania All-Stars, as well as musicians from Puerto Rico and Cuba. He loved the rhythm and instrumentation and played in bands in New York, Puerto Rico, and in Western Massachusetts. The Salsa Train Orquestra specializes in New York style salsa and Latin Jazz music. All arrangements are written by well-known Trumpet Player and Musical Arranger, Tommy Villariny from Puerto Rico, a graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Salsa Train will perform on the patio at the Easthampton River Valley Coop for FREE, and you are invited to come and dance or just watch and groove in your own way!
