ENGLISH: Yes, I know, a lot of authorities want you to stay indoors right now, but this is a rare opportunity to see Alaín Pérez live in the United States.  His resume is massive - his own bands, Habana Abierta, Jerry González in Spain, Paco de Lucia to name but a few - and in addition to being an excellent bassist, vocalist and bandleader he is also a supremely entertaining showman.  Since returning to Cuba from Spain a few years ago, he has been setting concert halls on fire there, and he will be in a setting in the United States where the concert will be produced well.  He will be backed by the Julio Montalvo Orchestra. If you are withing driving distance of Miami, you should see this. 
Jorge Luis Pacheco is an excellent pianist and is also very much worth seeing.  He has the mixed blessing of coming from an island that has produced so many but also does excellent shows.  

Time/Date:  Saturday, March 14 8-11 p.m. (doors open at 7 p.m.)
Where:  Miami Dade County Auditorium, 2901 W. Flagler, Miami
Tickets available through Ticketmaster and at the Miami Dade County Auditorium  box office
For more information, visit Fundarte's Website

ESPAÑOL: Sí, lo sé, muchas autoridades quieren que se quede en casa ahora mismo, pero es una rara oportunidad de ver a Alaín Pérez en vivo en los Estados Unidos. Su currículum es enorme: sus propias bandas, Habana Abierta, Jerry González en España, Paco de Lucía, por nombrar solo algunas, y además de ser un excelente bajista, vocalista y director de bandas, también es un showman sumamente entretenido. Desde que regresó a Cuba desde España hace unos años, ha estado incendiando salas de conciertos allí, y estará en un escenario en los Estados Unidos donde el concierto se producirá bien. Estará respaldado por la Orquesta de Julio Montalvo. Si se encuentra a poca distancia en automóvil de Miami, debería ver esto.
Jorge Luis Pacheco es un excelente pianista y también vale la pena ver. Él tiene la bendición mixta de venir de una isla que ha producido tantos pero también hace excelentes espectáculos.

Hora / fecha: sábado 14 de marzo 8-11 p.m. (puertas abiertas a las 7 p.m.)
Dónde: Auditorio del condado de Miami Dade, 2901 W. Flagler, Miami
Boletos disponibles a través de Ticketmaster y en la taquilla del Auditorio del Condado de Miami Dade
