AT the club called Havana Nights, in Ajax outside Toronto, they used to hire small bands… mostly Cuban band leaders… who used musicians mostly out of the talent pool of Cuban musicians around the GTA. The Saturday Latin nights were quite popular.
Then they tried changing hats, to become a pure restaurant dropping the dance club role… hiring a notable chef… and renaming themselves “South Restaurant“. But… now they are back to dance music, alternate Saturdays for now. Orlando Cardoso’s 5 man band is holding the job right now.
NEW: every Thursday night, Cuban pianist and bandleader Orlando Cardoso and friends will be playing at the club’s Latin night, same place.
