About
Quimbombo blends Cuban dance rhythms such as the son (the contagious dance music championed by Buena Vista Social Club that is the main ingredient in salsa), mambo, bolero, rumba and chachacha with jazz and blues influences to create a lively, unique and always danceable sound. The group has performed at many venues including The River to River Festival, Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night's Swing, SOB's, the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Museum, Gonzalez y Gonzalez, and Rockefeller Center.

They have recorded two CDs, Quimbombó, released in 2004, and Conga Electrica, released in 2008.

Our specialty is Cuban dance music; that's what we do. We can also play merengue, latin jazz, jazz, and swing. We do not play top 40 or pop.

Another option is a Carnival Show which can include costumed samba dancers.

Members of Quimbombo have performed and recorded with many well known artists, including:
Celia Cruz, The Talking Heads, Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Compay Segundo (from Buena Vista Social Club), Paquito D'Rivera, Cachao, Willie Chirino, Johnny Pacheco, Machito, Ruben Blades, Albita, Gilberto Santarosa, Gregg Allman, Cab Calloway, Abbey Lincoln, Geri Allen and Trey Anastasio.

I could not be more pleased with their talent and professionalism. They were the surprise for my husband's b-day party and HE was surprised. We all enjoyed their Cuban sounds and songs. They really made his 50th b-day party special and unforgettable. I am looking for another excuse to bring them back!!! I truly love them!! Thanks Nick to you and the band. Martha

Nick, the band leader, was very professional from the very beginning. He responded to our emails and requests right away, and was very accommodating. Furthermore, the audience loved the band and the music! They gave our event the exact look, feel and sound we had envisioned. I highly recommend Quimbombo to your next event! We are hiring them again!

This was a great band they communicated well prior to the event, arrived early to setup and were dressed very nicely. The performance was excellent, my audiance enjoyed the music and I have already gotten request to bring them back. The only negative thing about the band like most bands is that they take frequent breaks. Over all this was a posotive experience and I would use them again.
