DJ SKATE NIGHT with La Rumba Buena

About DJ Skate Night

Dj Skate Night is Toronto's #1 outdoor winter party that brings winter activity and music together. Family and friends have fun skating on the ice while listening to different genres of music every week. This block party is every Friday night from 8pm -11pm, and features several different talented DJ's. The event is free and takes place at the Harbourfront Centre Natrel Rink in Toronto.

On January 14th 2017, La Rumba Buena was the feature entertainment for the evening. Around 7:30 pm with the skating rink packed and the line up to rent skates out the door, it was clear that the night was only getting started.

Meet La Rumba Buena

La Rumba Buena consists of two DJs (DJ Blancon and DJ Drumspeak) that perform classic Latin music inspired by the salsatecas in Cali, Havana, and New York.

La Rumba Buena translates to 'a great party'. When listening to La Rumba Buena you can expect to hear "Salsa, Boogaloo, Cumbia, Guaguanco, Son, Rumba, Descargas, Mambo, Cha-Cha-Cha, Bomba, and Plena". DJs Blancon and Drumspeak have a unique performance style by playing all their sounds from vinyl records.
