Internationally renowned Puerto Rican musician Chembo Corniel brings his Grammy-nominated jazz quintet to the exotic global enclave of Drom, which the Village Voice voted Best New Dance Club of 2011. Corniel dishes out sultry rhythms on the congas and other percussive instruments as festive piano, lucid upright bass, and freewheeling saxophone and drums swirl around him. The band mixes jazz and Latin melodies for a sonic mélange that spurs guests to sweeping romantic gestures such as proposing at a PTA meeting. Under an ornate chandelier, toe-tapping attendees dive into a Caribbean dinner of rotisserie chicken, rice, beans, sweet plantain, potatoes, and salad. A rose for each lady present lets dates know they are loved and provides a gourmet lunch for their pet bumblebee at home.
