Join us at the Webb Barn on Friday, July 29, for a hot night of Latin jazz and salsa with Nelson Bello & Friends!

Bring your friends, lawn chairs, picnic dinner (or take-out from your favorite local restaurant), and DANCE!

Nelson Bello, a well-known Connecticut-based percussionist and Hartford native, began his musical studies at the Hartford Conservatory Jazz Summer Program at age 13 and the Performing Arts Academy in Hartford Connecticut. At 15, he traveled to Cuba for the International Jazz Festival (with Latin Flavor, now better known as INSIGHT) and invited guest Pianist Chucho Valdez. Nelson is co-founder of the Latin Jazz band TROMBEATZ, which is working on their first recording titled “A Caribbean Thing.” Over the years, Nelson performed with Andy Gonzalez, Cheo Feliciano, Ismael Miranda, Tony Vega, Charles Flores, Zaccai and Luques Curtis, among others.
