Feel the Funk at La Rumba During the Westword Music Showcase

Denver's hottest club for all things Latin, La Rumba has been a staple of the Denver club scene since 1997, earning a loyal following of dance and music lovers.

Today the club at 99 West Ninth Avenue is known for its impeccable sound system as well as its weekly events, which include salsa DJs on Thursday; salsa, merengue and more on Latin Fridays; and a dance party featuring live salsa bands on Saturday.  For those who aren't yet comfortable with their dance-floor technique, the club also offers lessons with trained instructors Monday through Wednesday.

And on Saturday, June 24, at the Westword Music Showcase, the club will feature some of Denver's grooviest Latin and funk acts, including La Pompe, GoStar, Roka Hueka, The Other Black, Los Mocochetes, Gumbo le Funque and ATOMGA. Here's the schedule:
