Here’s a little perk for friends of Tucker Law. In addition to writing for our law firm, Kelly and her husband Paul, manage a 17-piece Big Band where Paul also plays lead trombone. Multi-talented, right?!
The band they manage is Turner Center Jazz Orchestra, and their opening concert is Thursday, September 29 at the Turner Center on the Drake Campus. In recognition of National Hispanic Heritage Month, the concert is featuring all Latin music with guest artist, Latin percussionist specialist, Ed East. He'll not only dazzle you with his performance, but he'll guide the audience through Latin rhythm patterns known as clavés. You’ll learn how to tell a mambo from a cha-cha.
Tucker Law has represented Hispanic clients and clients from many nations of origin, but since we’ve got an in with the band, in recognition of National Hispanic Heritage month we’ve worked out a deal whereby friends of Tucker Law get $5 off the regular ticket price. Just click on this link TCJO and enter the coupon code TUCKER to save $5.
As a little brain enrichment, here’s the back story on this commemorative month It was originally established in 1966 as Hispanic Week by legislation signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson. Twenty years later President Ronald Reagan signed legislation that changed the name to National Hispanic Heritage Month and expanded the week to a month: September 15 to October 15,
September 15 was chosen as the beginning date of NHHM because it’s the anniversary of the start of the Mexican War of Independence, which achieved independence from Spain 11 years later for Mexico and the Central American nations of Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras, and Nicaraguan. Most Central American countries, Mexico and Chile continue to celebrate this designated month, and the United States supports the recognition with National Hispanic Heritage Month.
