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.

We had a great experience with Son de Cuba coming to perform at the University of Portland. Tony was great and led a 30 minute salsa dancing lesson before the band performed for about 90 minutes. Great guys and great sound!

First, Son de Cuba is very professional both in their musical talents and their business dealings. Second, this is a great salsa band. They are talented, well rehearsed, energetic, and fun. Tony who handled the booking with us was communicative and cooperative. This was my second opportunity to hear Son de Cuba at a party event. They were simply great on both occasions. If you are looking for an band to lift the energy of your event and get people on their feet, look no further than Son de Cuba!

It was wonderful working with Joel as a client. Since the beginning of the planning of his event, he had a clear vision of what his birthday celebration would be like. All of Son de Cuba band's members had a wonderful experience at this event. Thanks Joel for everything!!!
