Music Night at Los Primos

On Saturday, February 2nd, 2008 (same day as Groundhog Day) Diane Mahan and Hollis Hines co-hosted a Music Event at Hollis' Villa Los Primos in South Akumal.  The event was prompted by Roger & Denise Burton's return to Akumal after a long absence.  Roger, Denny's cousin, have been making fine music in Akumal for many an evening over the years, and once again they entertained a fairly large contingent of "locals" and visitors, who apparently had a MMMaaahhh-vvelllousss time throughout the entire evening.
