Carlos Gomez is a Cuban-born Jazz Pianist, trained in classical piano at the National School of Art in Havana and The Carl Nielsen International Conservatory in Moscow. Gomez’s passion turned to Jazz in his late teens, influenced by Irakere and the rapidly growing Jazz movement in Cuba in the 70s and 80s. Much of his inspiration has come from Cuban pianists such as Chucho Valdez and Gonzalo Rubalcaba, and also American pianist, Chick Corea. After graduating from the NSA, Gomez was a music professor at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogota for over a decade. In Miami he managed a Jazz Trio for two years at the St. Regis Wine Bar in Bal Harbour and has played Jazz at numerous events at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami, including the popular Jazz @ MOCA series.

Best Selling Author Adam Greenberg

Best Selling Author Adam Greenberg

Saturday, November 4

6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

If there is ever a person who epitomizes perseverance, it’s Adam Greenberg, famous for the one pitch that changed his life forever.  A 93 mile-an-hour first pitch fastball to the back of the head on his major league debut with the Chicago Cubs gave Adam the record for being one of the only two players in history to have an official at-bat without ever taking the field. After seven years of continued hustle to get back, Adam signed a one-day contract with the Miami Marlins in 2012. He was inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 2014. Tickets are $75, include a signed copy of Adam’s book plus wine/whiskey/beer tasting by Wine 101.  Proceeds benefit the Campaign for the Blackstone.  Purchase your tickets at colinsheehanevents.com.
