Sweet Luis Hidalgo is a man on a mission. He wants to bring Latin music to the masses. He fills the airwaves with all things Latino on “The Latin Jazz and Salsa Show” every Friday, 6-10 p.m., on WCLM 1450 AM. And now the Brooklyn-born plumber, musician and former boxer plays host to the Latin Jazz and Salsa Music Festival at Dogwood Dell Amphitheater. Now in its seventh year, the festival features an impressive lineup of polyrhythm pushers including Ismael Rivera Jr., the son of legendary Puerto Rican salsa singer and composer Ismael Rivera, Marlow Rosado, the 2013 Grammy award winner for best tropical album, and Herbie Martinez and Orchestra. There will be plenty of dancing on and off stage at the Alan Freed-styled revue as well. You can sit back and listen, but the music works best when everyone is an active participant. The festivities commence this Saturday, Aug. 16, at 3 p.m. Admission is free.
