Event for mambo lovers


SUNY Potsdam will host a Latin dinner and pre-festival screening of “For the Love of the Mambo,” a documentary produced by Crane School of Music associate professor Marsha Baxter and co-directed by Doyle Dean, beginning at 6 p.m. April 21 in Thatcher Hall on campus.

The film features the Latin Grammy-nominated Mambo Legends Orchestra as its experienced members work alongside La Garza, a student Latin ensemble at Crane.

The documentary traces the Mambo Legends Orchestra — musicians who nightly shared the bandstand with the iconic bandleader and percussionist Tito Puente over the course of decades. The veterans are reaching out to a new generation of performers from Crane.

The event will kick off with a Latin buffet, followed by the film. Tickets to the dinner and screening are $10 for SUNY Potsdam students and $20 for the public. VIP tickets are $40. To reserve tickets, visit
