Music is the soundtrack to our lives—from the ballad you slow-danced to at senior prom to the ballad you slowly walked home alone to. Remember the good times with this GrouponLive deal to see Grupo Niche at House of Blues Orlando. For $20, you get one G-Pass for general admission on Saturday, February 16, at 9 p.m. (up to a $41 value, including all fees). Doors open at 8 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
Grupo Niche, formed by the late Jairo Varela in 1978, was already one of the most successful bands in the “salsa capital of the world,” Cali, Colombia, when they made their United States debut at Madison Square Garden in 1986. Inciting dance parties wherever it goes, Grupo Niche brings fans to a fever pitch with its signature song, “Cali Pachanguero,” which pays a hip-swinging tribute to its rowdy hometown and its carnivals, raised streets, and mountains ringing with infectious horn lines. Other classics by the salsa-slinging superstars include “Han Cojido La Cosa,” a bright yet poignant tune about defiance in the face of racial mockery, and the nostalgic “Mi Pueblo Natal.”

House of Blues Orlando
Perched in Downtown Disney West Side, House of Blues Orlando resembles something of a backwoods theme park itself. Giant signs herald the venue from atop an old water tower taken from Mickey Mouse’s ancestral estate, and between trees wrapped entirely in twinkling lights stands a sprawling, neon-lit wooden roadhouse whose stage and lantern-strung patio bustle with boisterous entertainments nearly every night. A box of Delta Mississippi mud beneath its stage links it to its sister locations across the country.
