Tucked away in the alley behind the bar, the local “gypsy jazz band” with a Latin vibe had the crowd moving their hips to songs off their album, Summer Score. Their performance was part of the two-day Las Vegas Unplugged Music Festival, and it was certainly the most exotic of the weekend. Pepe Jimenez thumped away on the box-shaped Peruvian percussion instrument called a cajón, while vocalist Noybel Gorgoy’s beautiful Cuban voice was spine-chilling. By 1 a.m., the funky five-piece had everyone on their feet clapping and dancing.
