John and his band (Afrocuban) were amazing. From the first moment I booked them, john has been extremely accommodating and patient with me...especially with all my changes and special requests. The theme for this 70th anniversary party was old Vintage Cuba and they truly helped me feel as if we had stepped back in time. The music was amazing from beginning to end. They worked well with the other performers and vendors allowing the whole performance to flow beautifully. J would definitely recommend them for any event you may have. Class A and truly amazing.

Afrocuba Band was formed in 2001 by John Acevedo (musical director and bass player), Kevin Ortiz (Timbalero), Mario Duque (Pianist), and Alex Dieguez (Conga). Afrocuba's original repertoire consisted primarily of classic, old school, Cuban music and, in 2004, slowly evolved to include Puerto Rican and Colombian influences as well. Afrocuba Band has gained much popularity among salsa dancers in the New Jersey/North Jersey and New York City area and has gained an impressive following of fans.
