DJMigz, DJKrisKros and a live Music Performance by DJRelleo!

Bachata Nightz happens the first Thursday of the month. It is led by award-winning Bachata contest master Kathy Reyes, who also teaches dance at Ashkenaz.

She discovered her talent and passion for Latin dancing in college in Los Angeles, and over the past 10 years has taken various prizes individually and in dance troupes. She leads groups and teaches here, in Los Angeles and San Diego. Teaching allows her to share her philosophy of dance: "Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart takes one to a whole different level."

Terrell M. Bailey "DJ Relleo"
From: All Around The World
Key Tracks: Baby Girl, Poison and Love Issues


In little over three years, Terrell rise to prominence has been remarkable, his debut of  "Love Issues", which showcased his underground approach, fusing RnB with a Latin vibe into something with more sensual and full of flavor, which left the audience wanting more.  He began making music at the age of 16, initially gospel and RnB, but that eventually developed in to a new wave project "RnBachata" over the course of a decade, which sparked interest from listeners all around the south region part of the states. Known for his broad range of inventive "RnB" music that nimbly straddles minimal, progressive and unique forms of Bachata, his sound isn't easily pigeonholed, but signature elements appear throughout his back catalogue, emotive melodic development, unique incidental sound usage, and his regular foray in using Latin styled drums and percussion, which combine to fuel his continually evolving sound. With multiple of projects in works, this is only the beginning. "Relleo" has a mission and he is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that mission is accomplish.

John Sebastian


Launching his career with The Lovin' Spoonful in 1964, John Sebastian

has gone on to become one of America's most beloved singer songwriters. His tireless championing of American music put him at the forefront of the U.S. answer to Beatlemania, and in the center of the folk revival of the 50's and 60's alongside the likes of Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, and Joni Mitchell. His modern brand of Americana took him to some of the biggest locales in modern music history including Woodstock and Isle of Wight, and brought him work with a serious who's who of the folk world. John Sebastian's warm and friendly approach to performance him allowed him to connect with both audiences and fellow players in a way that few artists do. In 2000, his legacy was cemented with a spot in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, and he hasn't slowed down a bit. He's still writing and touring with the geniality and grace of someone truly grateful for their life in music.
