Destination Discounts Last Minute Pick: Susie Hansen Latin Band at Heritage Square Museum

The folks at the Heritage Square Museum are throwing a FREE concert Thursday evening featuring the Susie Hansen Latin Band – and they’re offering a free gift from their gift shop to Metro riders who attend.

Here’s more info from the event organizers:

Electric violinist Susie Hansen plays fiery Latin Jazz and Salsa, creating music that brings audiences to their feet, dancing in the aisles. Susie and her Los Angeles-based band have been acclaimed by many critics, such as Phil Elwood from the San Francisco Examiner who describes them this way: “It’s a sizzling, swinging Salsa band. Hansen can solo as if her bow was afire. The whole room was jumpin’ for joy.” Mark Holston wrote in JAZZIZ Magazine that Susie Hansen’s “violin speaks the language of Latin Jazz with total fluency.” A long-time favorite in Los Angeles, Susie and her band play 175-200 live performances per year, including such events as the Playboy Jazz Festival, Fiesta Broadway, San Jose Jazz Festival, LA Salsa Festival and Newport Beach Jazz Festival. She has toured nationally with her band, and has appeared with such big names as Tito Puente.

Again this event is FREE. Doors open to the public at 4pm. First act comes on at 5pm. Susie Hansen comes on at 6:15pm.

To get the free gift just show your valid Metro pass, Metro Rail ticket or TAP card at the Heritage Square Gift Shop.
