For each ticket purchase transaction, you will receive an Event Registration Confirmed email.  

You will need this email on your phone or in hard copy for you (and your guests) to be admitted to the event. 

READ ME!!! ---> REQUIRED FOR ENTRY (OR YOU WILL NOT BE ADMITTED):  Members and guests will be required to show their Village ID   >>OR<<   a valid Village's guest pass to gain admittance.     The guest passes must be submitted by a Villager to the rec center and pick them up for their guests. (There will be no exceptions to this rule - per The Villages regulations)

HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE: Guest tickets are in addition to your individual ticket.  For example if you want to purchase a ticket for you and 2 others (total of 3 tickets), you will be purchasing one for yourself and 2 for each of your guests.  If you've previously purchased a ticket and log back in to purchase 2 more guests tickets you will purchase one for yourself and 1 for the other guest.  I know that 's weird, but that is how this system works.

The grandson of NBA Hall Of Fame legend and two-time NCAA All American, David “Big Daddy” Lattin, Mathias Lattin chose to bring his talent to the stage and not the basketball court. The decision has already paid off. At 20 years old, Mathias Lattin won 1st place at the 2023 International Blues Challenge in the band category and was awarded Best Guitarist by the judges.​

Mathias Lattin is a product of the Houston ISD Fine Arts magnet program. He is a 2020 graduate of Kinder High School for Performing and Visual Arts.

Mathias Lattin is an emerging young Texas guitarist and product of the acclaimed Kinder High School for Performing and Visual Arts. He’s heavily influenced by music legends B.B. King, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, Albert Collins, and Wes Montgomery. Mathias’s love for music is reflected in the soulful blues, jazz-inflected chords, and funky bass lines. Trained as a jazz guitarist, he incorporates that knowledge in his playing and songwriting.​


Living Blues Magazine: His debut EP “Let’s Start Here” determined

“...there’s enough promise here to mark him as an artist to watch.” He continues to pave his way in the Blues, Mathias is on his way to creating his own legacy.
