2:00pm - 5:00pm: Orchestra Alto Maize
Orquesta Alto Maiz is something of a musical enigma. It is a popular Latin-jazz-dance band made up of musicians now living in the “heartland” of America.
The Latin tinged music they perform, usually found in the clubs of New York City, L.A. or Miami, has secured them a reputation as one of the hottest bands in the Midwest. This strange mix of “salsa” and tall corn works because of the years of musical experience the band members bring to the group, and because of their love for the music.
