Sonora Santanera

La Sonora Santanera is, according to a press release statement, one of the most influential groups of the tropical Mexican Music. Their unique musical style is influenced by the dazon, the mambo, the rumba, the chachacha and the cumbia.

Sonora Santanera’s style was conceptualized and created by trumpet player and musician Carlos Coronel.

The band will open the evening’s concert beginning at 8:30 p.m.

Sonora Tropicana

Referred to by fans as the “Queen of the Sonoras,” Sonora Tropicana hails from Medellin, Colombia, and is known as being the best of the Columbian cumbia, according to the same statement.

Sonora Tropicana will headline the night playing some of their timeless songs such as “Que Bello,” “El Gran Baron,” “El Hombre Que Yo Amo,” ” El Chuponcito” and more.

The evening will end at 11 p.m. and guests are encouraged to come early to catch both bands.

CasaBlanca Showroom

Friday will mark the first time either band has visited the CasaBlanca Showroom, the resort’s more intimate entertainment venue, which has hosted everything from comedy acts to the Southern Nevada Symphony Orchestra, as well as hypnotists and the Osmonds.

“The showroom has things that people don’t typically expect but that are entertaining and high-quality,” Adderson said. “Whatever anyone’s taste in entertainment, they can come get that at the CasaBlanca Showroom.”
