World-renowned trumpeter Bijon Watson 

Led by world-renowned trumpeter Bijon Watson, The Latin Jazz Syndicate is a group of all-star musicians that have performed and recorded with the likes of Arturo Sandoval, Poncho Sanchez, Jose Rizo’s Jazz on The Latin Side All Stars, and Luis Miguel, to name a few. 

The group pays homage to America’s indigenous music Jazz while maintaining the rhythmic and harmonic authenticity required of a variety of ethnic styles. The Latin Jazz Syndicate’s unique sonic flavors, infusing Afro Cuban, Latin Soul, and World Rhythms, as well as the ensemble’s dedication to performing with unsurpassed passion and energy, combine to create an unforgettable musical experience.

To purchase tickets, visit or call (949) 715-9713. 

Laguna Live! regrets that Adonis Puentes will not be able to perform as he lives in Canada and COVID restrictions are keeping him at home.
