While we were at dinner a university group of strolling musicians came into the restaurant. Little did we know it was a special ocassion. The older gentlemen who was at a table next to us with about 20 people was the founding member of this group nearly 40 years ago and the were quite popular around town. When the current members found out he was in town for a wedding (he lives in Puerto Rico now) they suprised him at the restaurant and "the Maestro" didn't waste any time getting into the performance and we had front row seats (literally we were backed into a corner and couldn't move if we tried). This guy is great!
We shut down the restaurant with this fantastic family and heard all their old stories, how the maestro met his wife and even played with the grandkids, it was truly very special.
On a side note, it may take the grand-kids some time to appreciate the music of their grandfather. When ever the group asked for requested they would yell "Waca Waca!" begging the group to play Shakira's World Cup anthem.
Who does it better?
