Upcoming Events

In most of Latin America, if you’re by the sea, there is bound to be a place called Miramar very close by. It will typically have a postcard view of the sea – and if music is playing, chances are that it will be boleros: the romantic ballads that originated in Cuba at the turn of the 20th century.

When Puerto Rican singer Rei Alvarez was looking to name a new Bolero project he searched for something simple that would be familiar to Spanish speakers; a name that would reflect the humble poetry of everyday life. Miramar seemed perfect: a romantic snapshot of a place both close and far away from home.

Miramar, the group, aims to capture that poetry through their music. Using a somewhat traditional instrumentation that includes organ, piano, guitar, bass, percussion and an occasional string quartet the group’s arrangements distill the essence of the golden age of boleros while adding touches that reveal the band’s scope and diversity.

While most of the members of Miramar have Puerto Rican roots, Marlysse Simmons Argandoña is a first generation Chilean American who brings a distinct South American flavor to her writing and arranging and singer Laura Ann Singh, although born in Tennessee, contributes a Brazilian flavor she owes to her years spent in Brazil singing mostly bossa nova.

Join us on February 22, 2018 for a fabulous performance by Miramar at In Your Ear Music and Recording Studio.  Miramar will be accompanied by a string section from members of Classical Revolution RVA.  First set will be Miramar alone, and second set they will be joined by Classical Revolution RVA string section.

 

Doors at 6:30PM, show at 7:30PM

  1. The Moore Brothers Band are amazing I saw them at IBMA and was blown away by the incredible job they did. It was a huge crowd and everyone loved it. This is a great venue to see them small and intimate with awesome sound. You don’t want to miss this show.

  2. So, I just purchased 2 tix for Yeni Nostaliji. What are the details as far as time and location?

  3. Hi Tom! The show will be held at In Your Ear Recording Studio (1813 East Broad St.). Potluck starts around 6:30PM and show at 7:30. Please go to our “Concert FAQ” page for more information on what to expect! Enjoy and thank you for supporting great music!

  4. I purchased tickets through the link above, and I did not receive any official email that I have secured the tickets. Your Concert FAQs page states that shows are free and only require me to bring food for a potluck. Do I also need to bring food in addition to having bought tickets? There’s conflicting information here. Can you provide some clarity?

  5. Hi Bret…you should have proof of purchase from PayPal. If you do not, please let us know and we will be sure to check your name (which we do at the door anyway). The show is not free, but the potluck is free to those who bring a dish. Sorry that was confusing. Please let ya know if you have any other questions and THANK YOU for supporting JAMinc!
