Stanley Jordan and Ramon Mirabet


Spanish rock star Ramon Mirabet shared a magic moment with the Riekestra at a restaurant in Spain. Ramon, who was eating dinner at the restaurant, graciously joined us to perform his hit single "Those Little Things." We are proud to have Ramon make his U.S. debut with us on September 14th. Check out the clip of Ramon performing in concert and then joining the Riekestra as a surprise guest.
