Wil Campa Y Su Gran Union – the award-winning 13-piece ensemble famous for getting every member of the audience up and moving – returns to Vail Thursday, July 11 to perform for Jazz @ Vail Square as part of the 19th Annual Vail Jazz Festival.
 
“The Wil Campa Orchestra is a versatile show. All the musicians dance and sing extremely well,” Campa says. “When the audience is moved by music, they dance and sing with me.”
 
In Cuba, Wil Campa Y Su Gran Union are widely recognized. Their songs are played daily on the radio and at baseball games and they were recently nominated for a CUBASISCO – Cuba’s version of a Grammy.
 
Campa himself describes Su Gran Union as “A big band of young artists presenting music from the 50s, 60s and beyond from Cuba, with confidence and well-dressed.”
 
Well-dressed as they may be, ties are loosened as the beat goes on and energy soars.
 
Catch Wil Campa Y Su Gran Union heating up the Jazz Tent in Lionshead on Thursday, July 11 at 6 p.m. in the Jazz @ Vail Square series, part of the 19th Annual Vail Jazz Festival, which offers 40 unique live performances throughout the summer, culminating in the Labor Day Weekend Jazz Party.
