Platinum record-winner A Taste Of Honey will revive the ‘70s’ disco scene at Fiesta In America’s 21st Anniversary edition on August 10 and 11 at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, New Jersey.
A disco music pioneer, A Taste Of Honey received the Grammy for Best New Artist in 1979. The band’s music lives on, driven by the percussive bass guitar of founder and lead singer Janice Marie Johnson. Her musicianship is the heart of A Taste Of Honey’s concerts around the world.
Groove to Billboard Hot 100 and worldwide number 1 hit, Boogie Oogie Oogie, and other tunes like Sukiyaki and I’ll Try Something New (number 1 and 9, respectively, on the US R&B chart) at the biggest expo and cultural show of its kind on the east coast, Fiesta In America.
A Taste Of Honey will headline the U.S. artists’ line- up during Fiesta in America’s dance-themed cultural show on both days of the event. Other disco-inspired acts will feature Dancing Dream, the world- acclaimed ABBA tribute band; the hottest superstars from the world of Philippine movies, television and recording; and remarkable New York-area artists.
This summer will mark Fiesta In America’s 21st year as the east coast’s longest-running trade and cultural expo. The indoor event is a direct-sales platform for businesses to tap the New York-New Jersey Filipino market while showcasing the best of Philippine culture, highlighted by a Santacruzan on Sunday, August 11.
Free workshops on Philippine franchising opportunities, led by the Ateneo Graduate School of Business Program Director Jonathan Petalver; free health screenings; a native Food Festival; and special sections for artists, photographers, chess enthusiasts and children round up the event’s main attractions.
The night before the expo, Fil-Am Who’s Who watchers will also have the opportunity to meet Fiesta In America’s featured Pinoy stars and honor Filipino achievement in diverse fields at the People’s Ball. Fiesta In America’s community tribute gala, the People’s Ball, will be held on Friday, August 9 at New Jersey’s Meadowlands Hilton, in East Rutherford.
