Joaquin Gustav Heats Up Littlefield Grid

19 Dec

On December 18, Littlefield Grid welcomed the amazing Argentine guitarist Joaquin Gustav for a live performance at the Music Pier on Coney Island South. It was a fabulous evening of music and dancing with a Latin flavor to warm up those cold December nights.

Joaquin dazzled us all with his virtuoso guitar, his warm personality and entertaining mix of musical styles. One of the most popular performers in the virtual world, Joaquin is from Buenos Aires, Argentina, the birthplace of the Tango. We got to try out our new couples dance system with our fancy footwork.

Of course in Argentina the December nights aren’t cold at all. It’s summer there, and Joaquin brought the heat to the Music Pier with a musical variety of jazz and pop songs in addition to Tango and Bossa nova. My personal favorite was Joaquin’s rendition of “Fragilidad” or “Fragile”, by Sting.

This was the first event at the brand new Music Pier, which was decorated for Christmas with sparkly stars, Christmas trees and warm glowing lights. Joaquin’s guitar spun out several Christmas tunes in keeping with the season, but with his own sizzling Latin style.

In keeping with the New Jersey Shore theme of the region, the Music Pier was built in tribute to the Ocean City Music Pier in Ocean City, New Jersey. The iconic auditorium has been a favorite for concerts at the beach since 1928. This was the grand opening of the virtual version. We are looking forward to many more romantic evenings there!

We are planning to have Joaquin come back for regular performances starting in 2014. Be sure to watch the Littlefield Grid Event Calendar for the next Tango Time!
