Stay tuned as we finalize this summer’s lineups for
Rendezvous in the Park
July 14th- 16th
Milonga plays original songs, based on the musical traditions of Latin America, Spain, and the Caribean. Milonga’s focus is to expose diverse audiences to a Pan-Latin musical and cultural experience. Milonga’s wide variety of dance grooves are frequently compared to a Latino potluck buffet, where all the best dishes from around the Spanish-speaking world are served up hot off the comal, straight outa your abuelita’s kitchen. In a world of Salsa, Milonga is the whole enchilada!
Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas have arrived at last with their long awaited Instant Records debut, SECRET EVIL. The album sees the Detroit--based band serving up a brilliantly polyglot sonic stew – equal parts rockabilly and surf pop, cabaret jazz and funky reggae, Latin psych and Gypsy punk – all cooked up on the hot Motor City pavement and seasoned by that distinctly Detroit combination of blasted R&B, showband theatrics, and limitless rock ‘n’ soul energy
The award-winning, hard-touring, guitar slinger blends smoking electric funk and slide guitar, jazzy instrumentals and a tight blues groove with soulful, feminine vocals. Add to the mix her incredible stage presence, all of which makes her an irresistible force in the world of contemporary blues music.
It is truly with pride and gratitude that we thank everyone who participated in making this year’s Rendezvous such a tremendous success.
From our volunteers, the musical and artistic talent, our donor community and to you the public who helped support us, we wish to extend our heartfelt thanks and joy!
This year’s Rendezvous was AMAZING – we can’t wait to see you and your friends next year.
The Rendezvous in the Park Board wishes to extend our deepest sympathies to the entire community, and our hearts go out to all of the family members and friends who have been impacted by the tragic and senseless events of January 10th.
The loss of our fellow Rendezvous board member and dear friend Terri Grzebielski has struck all of us hard and is a terrible and disheartening tragedy. We cannot replace her loving friendship.
While her devotion and enthusiastic support for our festival will be keenly missed by us all – our hearts are directed even more towards the loss of a beloved friend. We will miss her always.
To the Rendezvous community, and extended to all who are recovering from this tragic event, we again lend our support and join you in grief. May we come together and move forward in peace as Terri would have wanted.
