La Cubanita's Orchestra will be performing outside on the patio at the Martini Bar, Saturday, June 30, 7 p.m.

"We are looking forward to playing some fabulous Latin music, from Celia Cruz, Albita, La India, The Gypsy Kings, Buena Vista Social Club," said Mercy.

The little orchestra also will perform original songs written by Larry Czarnecki and Mercy.

The music has the infectious grooves and rhythm of the island, from Rumba and Merengue, to Boleros and Cha Cha Cha's.
