The "Bajo Control" orchestra was formed in January 2003. The founder and leader, Hector Cruz, decided to put together some of the best-know musician in the Tampa Bay area and try a new concept of making an exciting 11-piece band specializing in various types of Latin Rhythms such as Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Bachata, Boleros (Ballads)& Latin Jazz. With just three rehearsals, the very experienced and seasoned band members started performing around the Tampa Bay area with huge success. The name of the band and its great reputation spread around quickly as one of the best bands around. As a result, "Bajo Control" has played for many different activities such as weddings, birthday parties, festivals, gala events, charity events, clubs, etc..., all over Florida and neighboring states.

Hector Cruz selected the name "Bajo Control" because the word "Bajo" has two meanings in Spanish and because the work "Bajo" has a special meaning to him. The two meanings of the word "Bajo" are: "Under" and "Bass" (the instrument). Since it's well known by musicians of all genres, but especially the Latin musicians, that the Bass is the instrument that controls a band's sound and flavor, Hector Cruz thought it would be appropriate to name the band "Bajo Control", as he, coincidently, is the Bass Player as well as the Band Leader for "Bajo Control".

When put together, the words "Bajo Control" mean "Under Control" or "Bass Control". With that in mind, Hector must keep the band "Under Control" with his leadership as well as with his Bass instrument. Therefore, Hector likes the saying that with "Bajo Control, everything is Under Control".

Bajo Control's band members are very professional, very disciplined, and take their jobs very seriously. They love making people dance to their music and they take pride in their performances. Yes, they love all kinds of music and aim to please the public. They love watching people dance to their music, which is why they play all kinds of Latin Music (Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Latin Jazz, Cumbia, Ballads {Boleros}, etc...).

Bajo Control has had the privilege and honor to accompany Mega-Stars such as Lalo Rodriguez, Kevin Ceballo, Charlie Cruz, to name a few. All of the musicians in this band have played with many famous mega-stars.

Hector Cruz has played with many famous musicians known worldwide, including Richie Ray & Bobby Cruz, Lalo Rodriguez, Edde Santiago, Tito Allen, Adalberto Santiago, Paquito Guzman, Larry Harlow, Ismael Miranda, Johnny Rivera, Tulile {Merenguero from the Dominican Republic}, Kevin Ceballo, Charlie Cruz, Pedro Conga, Edgar Joel, Pedro Jesus, Frankie Negron, a former member of Wito Rodriguez and "The Conexion Latina Orquestra" (Best Latin Band in Europe), Son de Cali, Maelo Ortiz, Hector Tricoche, Luisito Carrion, Cano Estremera, Jose Alberto 'El Canario', Giovani Hidalgo, Nicky Marrero, and the late "Queen of Salsa" Celia Cruz, King of the Timbales "Tito Puente", Master of the Congas "Ray Barretto", and Marvin Santiago, and Frankie Malabe,just to name a few...
