¡Latin Party Music!

Caribbean, Brazilian and American rhythms fused with catchy melodies. After 4 years traveling, touring and learning the languages of Caribbean and Brazilian musicians in Colombia, Brazil and Argentina, singer Bronson Tennis mixes his American roots with Afro-Latino rhythms to inspire an undeniably fun North/South American dance party.

Salsa, Son Cubano, Bossa Nova, Samba, Merengue, Bolero, Champeta, Soca, Reggae, Cha Cha! We also play more traditional pop music if more familiar sounds are desired (Beatles, Jack Johnson, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley). Our calendar speaks for itself.

De Tierra Caliente, which means "from hot land," delivers the sabor (flavor), spice and alegría of warm-weather Latin-American countries to audiences in the Northeastern US, where formidable winters and nose-to-the-grindstone work ethics sometimes overshadow simple pleasures like sharing a meal with friends or going out dancing.

They bridge the gap between "boricua" (Puerto Rican) and "gringo" communities, as Bronson is joined by Puerto Rican percussionist and Philly Salsa icon, Edwin "Papo Buda" Rosado, who for decades has performed with local groups such as the Latin Playboys and Saboricua and has even appeared with the world-renowned Gran Combo de Puerto Rico. At their show you can't help but WARM UP as upbeat songs in Spanish, English and Portuguese sing out the bright colors and familial heat of a South American kitchen.

Gracias for checking us out! And,

¡Sí! Will provide quality sound system if necessary :) These bi/trilingual musicians pride themselves on always managing a tasteful volume despite having multipercussions.

De Tierra Caliente lleva sabor a COCO y PIÑA. ¡Wepa je!

I wasn't looking for a wedding band for our wedding; I was just looking for good music. What we got from this band wasn't good music - it was great music. I can't tell you how many guests asked, "Where did you find this band!!! They're incredible!" We couldn't have been happier about their performance. Do yourself a favor if you love music and want to give that gift to your guests for any event - hire this band!

De Tierra Caliente’s Response:

Thanks for your kind words, Derek. We loved getting everyone up and dancing (especially the kids!) and it was cool to play for Brazilians who understood all the Sambas in Portuguese. Take care!

Where do I even begin. I am so happy to have found De Tierra Caliente via Gigmasters. Not only are they all amazing musicians, but they're the sweetest most genuine people. My wedding guests all are raving about how great the band was (the added flute player was fantastic!) You made my Dominican/ West Virginia barn wedding so unique and fun. Our families truly enjoyed every minute of it, they didn't want the music or the night to end. :) Thank you for traveling to us! Best wishes to you all!

De Tierra Caliente was AMAZING! They were above and beyond my expectations. Bronson and the rest of the band had the party rocking! It was a pleasant surprise when they showed up with an extra band member playing the flute and he was incredible! I had so many guests asking me where I found them. I would HIGHLY recommend this band to anyone looking for a high quality, talented and fun band to perform at your event!
