Jimmy Jorge & The Latin Express bring Latin Flair to Yardley

On January 23, 2016, 7:30pm, at the Yardley Community Centre, 64 S. Main St., Yardley, PA 19067, prepare to be swept away by the hot Latin rhythms of ‘Jimmy Jorge and The Latin Express’.  If you would like to learn a new dance, come with your dancing shoes and be prepared to have a great time! There will be 4 dancers that will be teaching Latin dances and also performing during the concert.

A Chicago native, Jimmy Jorge was a youngster when he moved to Philadelphia, where he still resides. By the time high school ended, his musical abilities included playing violin, Caribbean steel drums, trumpet, and conga. Expounding on his growing salsa music skills, Jimmy also learned to play bongo, timbal, and tambora. He would eventually play with various salsa groups and is now the proud leader and musical director of ‘Jimmy Jorge and The Latin Express’, which started as a six-piece latin jazz band in 1995. They have since evolved into a twelve-piece salsa band.
