Tony Vega
In 1980, Vega was doing a show with La Selecta and in the audience was another salsa bandleader, Willie Rosario. Rosario was impressed with Vega and invited him to join his band. He did and participated in many recordings, and from 1981 to 1986, he shared credits with a young singer by the name of Gilberto Santa Rosa. Vega also played an essential role in the recording of “La Nueva Cosecha” (The New Harvest) which was nominated for a Grammy Award. He stayed with Rosario for eight years.

Don’t miss this very special re-union in another historic salsa concert at Lehman Center!
