Jesse & Joy are ready for a little amor…
The Latin Grammy-winning Mexican pop duo, comprised of siblings Jesse Huerta and Joy Huerta, will be among the headliners at Spanish Broadcasting Systems‘ annual Amor a Nuestra Música multi-act show, taking place December 5 at Nassau Coliseum.
Jesse & Joy, big winners at the 2012 Latin Grammys, join a roster that includes Luis Fonsi, Ricardo Montaner, Gloria Trevi, Pablo Alborán and Natalia Jiménez, along with Dominican bachatero Frank Reyes.
The show, which brings together top pop acts every year, is produced by SBS Entertainment — the event promotion arm of SBS — with support from SBS New York radio station 93.1 FM, Amor.
“We’re always looking to present the most innovative shows possible for the Latin community,” said Lucas Piña, SVP of SBS Entertainment. “Amor a Nuestra Música will feature a fantastic stage and cutting edge production. It’s out way of thanking our listeners for their support throughout the year.”
SBS has a long tradition of putting together massive, multi-act shows in major Latin markets in tandem with their local stations, which includes Mega 97.9 FM (La Mega) in New York, the most-listened to Spanish-language station in the country. The station’s annual “Megaton” took place in September, and featured performances by Juanes, Carlos Vives and Juan Luis Guerra, among others.
Amor, SBS’ pop station, is behind the annual “Amor a Nuestra Música” show, which features mostly pop acts and last year had performances by Ricky Martin and Vives, among others. SBS Entertainment also produces the annual Calibash in Los Angeles and El Día Nacional de la Salsa (National Salsa Day) in Puerto Rico, in addition to concert tours by multiple acts.
Tickets to Amor a Nuestra Música are available on Ticketmaster starting at $21, but listeners can also vie for free seats by tuning into Amor or registering at the station’s website.
