It’s sure to be a “Fun City Shingaling” when San Juan–born, Bronx-raised salsa pioneer and “El Rey de la Pachanga” Joe Quijano takes charge of the dance floor. Over his seven-decade career, Quijano has played with Latin music all-stars Orlando Marín, Eddie Palmieri, Paquito Guzmán, Israel “Cachao” López, and many others. Whether it’s showing us how to pachanga, embodying son cubano, dipping into boogaloo, or throwing down some classic salsa, Quijano and his famous band do it all with flair and keep dancers working as hard as they are.
