#JackSala7 with Julieta Venegas in Miami.
Standing in a crowd of people at the #JackSala7 show in Miami, I stood enchanted by the figure on the stage. I could not believe that Julieta Venegas was just feet away from me singing the words I had sung so many times in my dorm room, my shower, the plane, the car… really anywhere I had been for the last five years. Singing those words so many times (and understanding more and more of what the words meant as I improved my Spanish), it never crossed my mind once that I would get to see her live, but then again, who would have thought I’d end up in Miami?
Me impresionó demasiado su forma de ser, su performance, style and grace. During the show, she not only played piano, but accordion and guitar. Seamos honestas—she is the amiga we all want to have. I mean who wouldn’t want to be friends with Julieta Venegas?
La Roja y yo really had a great time at the show (the photo below fue tomada despues del show de Julieta Venegas—note the huge smile on my face.) In addition to Julieta, we also rocked out to the boricua duo Domino Saints who opened up the show…love those guys! They are full of so much energía. To close out the noche at #JackSala7, the masters of the Venezuelan gozadera, Los Amigos Invisibles brought down the casa with their funky rock. Love it!
A few days later, I’m still listening to the songs, smiling. Even though I don’t drink much Jack Daniels, I think I will always have a place for them in my heart for hosting the #JackSala7 tour.
