¡Viva! Lerryn Creek

June 2nd

"I was there"

What a night, has Lerryn ever seen anything quite like it? KABASA! A six piece high octane Salsa band, about 80 plus guests boogying all night, valuable volunteers helping all the way. Eight 1950s standard lamps strategically placed around Lerryn Memorial Hall with the neon ceiling lights cut out completely to give some special ambience to a special evening.

A well-stocked bar that ran out and had to replenish, homemade pizzas and tasty nibbles, they too sold out. This was a night to remember, ‘I was there’ I hear you shout.

Two high energy sets of hot Latin Jazz straight from Cuba, Colombia, Costa Rica and Nicaragua and so well performed and arranged, it was as if Carlos Santana were in the room.

At times the dance area was choked with some excellent and sometimes naughty Salsa moves. Wild applause followed each number, at the end after a major encore they had and to go and journey back home to Penzance. Here’s looking forward to July 15th at The Duchy.

Lots of money raised and donated to The Lama Bus and The Lerryn Memorial Hall.

Comments from the Viva Lerryn Creek:

“What a wonderful night”

“Please don’t stop putting on Jazz Café”

“When’s the next one”

“This room is just right for Jazz Café.”

“Where did you find KABASA!”

“And all this for just £12”

“Far out”

“I guess it's back to The Duchy for the next gig then

“What no beer”



And the winner is... John Pegg who wins two complimentary tickets to JAZZMIN SUMMER on July 15th. Well done John.
