With over a hundred weddings under our belt, Los Boleros is the Bay Area's most popular Cuban Band, Latin Band and Salsa Band with that Buena Vista Social Club Vibe! Fronting the band is Cuban super-star from Havana (and featured artist in the new HBO Movie Hemmingway and Gelhorn starring Nicole Kidman) Felix Samuel and the Bay Area's own Zareen both on lead vocals. Compare our actual live videos and see the difference of a world class act.
In a time of modern dance music, Los Boleros stays true to the traditional sounds of an era when music was golden. Imagine dinner with Ricky Ricardo's Tropicana Havana or Buena Vista Social Club! We've done a ton of weddings and offer the classiest services available for your special day.
Acoustic ceremony music- This can be a duo or trio starting with acoustic guitar and tres Cubano but by also adding the upright bass. Of course we do a very nice "Here comes the bride" but re open to your suggestions as well. Even Jewish classics sound amazing with the Cuban acoustic sound.
Four piece cocktail hour- A low volume combo that is Latin jazzy but distinct as well. The tres Cubano and acoustic guitar ring nicely together acompanied by the upright bass and flute or percussions.
Romantic dinner set- The full band starts playing romantic Latin classics to take you on a journey like only Los Boleros can. Classic and traditional styles like bolero, danzon and vals (waltz). This is where you really appreciate the vocal power of Los Boleros.
Two spicy dance sets- This is where Los Boleros takes it up several nothes and you can really notice the intensity of the percussions. There is nothing like the afro cuban tumbao played on the upright bass to make your body move! Merengue, son Cubano, traditional salsa and cumbia with strong back up vocals and a smoking saxophone.
How about start them off with a salsa lesson? This works well when you have a lot of people that wont usually dance. We work with very talented and charming professionals that will get the party started very nicely.
Our fans claim that we have the best male/female vocalists combo in the Bay Area! Pay no attention to that. See for your self. Our videos are live. We are not lip-syncing, it's the real deal. You can hear what we really sound like and see how we really perform because its actual Live Television Footage!
