Aventura Blog

Super group Aventura has amassed more accomplishments and accolades than any other bachata group in existence! For this reason alone, I was thrilled to be at their "farewell" party as they concluded the last leg of their US based tour. La fiesta, sponsored by Hennessy, was at the exclusive penthouse floor of the Rivington Hotel in New York City. You could sense everyone's excitement as they waited for the group to arrive. The energy built up by Romeo, Henry, Lenny and Max earned them an incredible year that lead to four sold out concerts in Madison Square Garden, nine Latin Billboard awards including latin artist and album of the year, and a trip to the white house to celebrate latin heritage with President Obama. If that wasn't enough to put them on top, their hit single, Obsesion went to number one across the globe in Italy! With their popularity and reach running wild, it was sad for most of us here in New York to imagine that they won't be back for a while. Rumors were running rampant about the group splitting up to work on solo projects so I couldn't wait to ask them myself! My time finally came as Lenny and Max stepped onto the carpet. I was able to breathe a sigh of relief as they assured me that they will indeed be back together to record another album. Gracias a dios! Of course, in the meantime, they will also be involved in solo projects, but that only adds to what this super talented group brings to the world. Their popularity en el mundo latino has been regarded to be as massive as that of the Beatles. Only time will tell if this is actually true and whether or not the group can amass the same popularity in mainstream american society. However, it is clear to them, and to all of who are fans, that they are truly living a grand aventura! Let's see where they land next! In the meantime, check out to see the video footage!
