An irresistible Latin dance party 

THIS MAY, why not increase the temperature as the weather starts to chill with the heat of all things Latin and dance with a night of dancing with No Way Jośe as they bring their lively dance party to Coolum Civic Centre on Saturday, May 27 from 7pm.  

No Way Jośe performances are guaranteed to get audiences up and dancing and tickets range from just $25.  

The band’s unique blend of sensual salsa, irresistible bolero, and rich harmonies of Latin American jazz create an exhilarating show, featuring some of Queensland’s most talented Latin musicians. Led by the stunning vocals of Australia’s own salsa diva-in-waiting, Amila Sargeant, No Way José is a vibrant celebration of the rich history of salsa infused with a 21st-century sensibility. 

The group cannot wait to get Coolum audiences up and dancing to the sound of Latin America. 

“We are thrilled to be coming to the Sunshine Coast and sharing our music,” Amilia Sargeant said. 

“We love seeing the energy and passion of our audiences, and we can’t wait to see everyone on the dance floor.” 

Audiences can expect an unforgettable night of music and dancing as No Way Jośe takes the stage. Singer and co-founder Amilia Sargeant is joined on stage by pianist and co-founder Juan Manrique with Fredy Uscategui on congas, cajón, and percussion; Adam Haks on Trombone; Zac Chambers on the trumpet, and bassist Jono Fraser. 

The group seamlessly weaves together their original compositions with unearthed classics from the mid to late 20th century in Latin America, bringing the energy and passion of Latin music to Sunshine Coast audiences. 

Don’t miss your chance to experience the exhilarating Latin rhythms of No Way Jośe, as they light up the stage on their Sunshine Coast tour. 

The No Way Jośe Sunshine Coast tour is presented by local performing arts company Red Chair with the support of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
