Music at the Odyssey

We are delighted to announce that Music at the Odyssey curators John Snow and Gabriel Jimenez Montes will return in March for a series of lively, engaging and intimate evenings of music and song. They will be joined by musician Nelson Garcia Marquez an artist of Cuban descent who grew up in Venice. His father Willy Marquez was an actor and Odyssey Theatre ensemble member.

Bass player John Snow’s cabaret series will feature the best of “The Great American Song Book”  with a program of songs by Sondheim, Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hammerstein and Sting!

Montes’ band Plenazo Tribe brings us the Afro-Latin folklore music genre Plena from Puerto Rico. The evening is a tribute to International Women’s Day and promises to be as lively and unique as the vibrant streets of Latin America. Plenazo Tribe will be joined by singers, dancers and special guests for an unforgettable showcase of the Puerto Rican beat.

Nelson Marquez is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter who is an original band member of Andy Garcia and the CineSon All Stars. He will be debuting his solo album Turn the Light On
