Backbeat: Latin Grammy Parties -- Including One With An '80s Twist

BMI Vegas
Patricia Flores of AEG Live/Goldenvoice, Monica Escobar of The 3 Collective and Teresa Romo of EMI Music/Capital Latin take time to hang out at BMI's '80s themed party in Las Vegas.

Latin Grammy week in Las Vegas isn't complete with without a slate of parties that have music executives and talent alike networking, performing and checking out the scene.

From the Latin Grammy after party at the Mandalay Bay Center to the Universal Music Latin Entertainment party at Tropicana's Nikki Beach nightclub, these gatherings were the place to be seen and heard.

Not all was play and go as BMI hosted "Los Producers Charity Show," which brought together some of Latin music's biggest entertainers and other industry vets to raise awareness for The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation.

Regional Mexican band Los Tucanes de Tijuana, led by Mario Quintero Lara, perform the '80s Menudo classic "Subete a Mi Moto"/"Get On My Motorcycle."

The evening's all-star band included Sebastian Krys, Dan Warner, Lee Levin, John Falcone, Doug Emery and Elsten Torres. Those who performed were Franco De Vita, La Santa Ceceilia and Los Tucanes De Tijuana who entertained the crowd with the '80s Menudo classic "Súbete a Mi Moto"/"Get On My Motorcycle."

It was perhaps the Latin Grammy-nominated La Santa Cecilia's Marisol Hernandez that made head turns with a cool and funky version of "Tainted Love."

In the crowd was Nir Seroussi of Sony Latin Music, Patricia Flores of AEG Live/Goldenvoice and Teresa Romo of EMI Music/Capital Latin, among others.
