Son de Cuba is a sextet created by musicians from Cuba , Chile Mexico and USA. We play different kinds of genres such as Salsa, Timba, Son, Merengue, Cumbia, Latin Jazz, etc. The band consists of: Vocals, piano and bass piano player, Nelson Morales; lead vocals, Fredy Vilches; sax, flute and vocals, Adrian Baxter;Trumpet, Levis Dragulin;Timbales, Adalberto Dominguez; bongos and cowbell, Matt Hooker, and percussionist and vocals, Tony Glez (Ataca).

Since two of the band members are Cubans, we have roots in latin, african, and jazz rhythms. We blend this vast knowledge of different beats together in classic and modern latin songs, exuding energy, happiness, and encouraging you to dance. With only four performers, we have a full sound and will draw a crowd with our energy and love for our music. Dancing is encouraged, we may even join you!

Our band has the necessary equipment for our gigs. Our band is made up of four musicians and their instruments: a piano, three conga drums, a set of four timbales drums, a flute, a saxophone, and a cowbell. We don't need a large stage: we can fit on a 15''x15' space. We have speakers, microphones and stands, all wires we need, and we bring our own instruments, we just need the necessary outlets and at least 8' of head space for the speakers.

Son de Cuba made our fundraising event a huge success. They are talented musicians and honestly should have cost us more. Highly recommend them for any event.

Tony was AMAZING! His enthusiasm was contagious! He got the husbands dancing salsa--not an easy feat! The musicians were also VERY TALENTED --the trumpet player was spectacular and the band was very 'tight.' The ONLY THING I would do differently when I hire them again (which I will)--is ask them to play ACOUSTIC ONLY--no amplification. I wanted to talk during the performance/party and it was too loud to talk. That was my only disappointment. The band doesn't need amplification for the size of room at Secret Society. Their acoustic sound alone will keep everyone dancing and sharing in conversation. Thank you Tony and Son de Cuba--hasta pronto! Aimée
