No Way Jośe is set to bring their lively Latin dance party to the Sunshine Coast this May, with a series of high-energy performances that are guaranteed to get audiences up and dancing.
The band's unique blend of sensual salsa, irresistible bolero, and rich harmonies of Latin American jazz create an exhilarating show, featuring some of Queensland’s most talented Latin musicians.
Led by the stunning vocals of Australia’s own Salsa diva-in-waiting, Amila Sargeant, No Way José is a vibrant celebration of the rich history of Salsa, infused with a 21st-century sensibility.
Audiences in Pomona, Maleny, Coolum, and Eudlo can expect an unforgettable night of music and dancing as No Way Jośe takes the stage. Singler and co-founder Amilia Sargeant is joined on stage by pianist and co-founder Juan Manrique, with Fredy Uscategui on congas, cajón, and percussion; Adam Haks on Trombone; Zac Chambers on the trumpet; and bassist Jono Fraser.
“We are thrilled to be coming to the Sunshine Coast and sharing our music,” said Amilia Sargeant. “We love seeing the energy and passion of our audiences, and we can't wait to see everyone on the dance floor.”
“My dad lives in Kenilworth and I love visiting there, and the Glasshouse Mountains,” Amila shared. “THe area to me is some of the most beautiful nature in Australia and the world.
“The people I have met seem open-minded and grounded in nature, and very curious about other cultures and respecting Indigenous ways of life.”
The group seamlessly weaves together their original compositions with unearthed classics from the mid to late 20th century in Latin America, bringing the energy and passion of Latin music to Sunshine Coast audiences.
Don't miss your chance to experience their exhilarating Latin rhythms! The group will be at the Majestic Theatre, Pomona on May 20, Maleny Community Centre on May 26, Coolum Civic Centre May 27, and Eudlo Hall on May 28.
