$600 - $5000 per event
Quimbombo blends Cuban dance rhythms such as the son (the contagious dance music championed by Buena Vista Social Club that is the main ingredient in salsa), mambo, bolero, rumba and chachacha with jazz and blues influences to create a lively, unique and always danceable sound. The group has performed at many venues including The River to River Festival, Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night's Swing, SOB's, the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Museum, Gonzalez y Gonzalez, and Rockefeller Center.

They have recorded two CDs, Quimbombó, released in 2004, and Conga Electrica, released in 2008.

Our specialty is Cuban dance music; that's what we do. We can also play merengue, latin jazz, jazz, and swing. We do not play top 40 or pop.

Another option is a Carnival Show which can include costumed samba dancers.

Members of Quimbombo have performed and recorded with many well known artists, including:
Celia Cruz, The Talking Heads, Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Compay Segundo (from Buena Vista Social Club), Paquito D'Rivera, Cachao, Willie Chirino, Johnny Pacheco, Machito, Ruben Blades, Albita, Gilberto Santarosa, Gregg Allman, Cab Calloway, Abbey Lincoln, Geri Allen and Trey Anastasio.

Outstanding performances. Started with solo piano for cocktail hour, then 5 piece band for the wedding celebration. Every single guest commented on how great they were. They were perfectly tight. High energy. Set an incredible mood. Thank you!!

Quimbombo was fantastic! The music was terrific! All our guests loved it and all commented on how good the band was! The band was punctual, professional, respectful of our home, and great to deal with. We would highly recommend them and feel lucky to have found them! They really made our party a success!
