About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Son de Cuba is a sextet created by musicians from Chile, Mexico, USA and Cuba. We play different kinds of genres such as Salsa, Timba, Son, Merengue, Boleros, Cumbia, Bachata, Latin Jazz, etc. The band consists of: Vocals, piano and bass piano player, Nelson Morales; singer and minor percussion, Freddy Vilches; singer, Geisy Almanza; singer and percussionist; Sax, flute and vocals, Ramon Brizuela Martinez; American Drummer, Jackson Coffey, and percussionist, vocals and band manager Tony Gonzalez. We are based in Portland, Oregon. Since four of the band members are Cubans, we have roots in Latin, African, and Jazz rhythms. We blend this vast knowledge of different beats together in classic and modern latin songs, exuding energy, happiness, and encouraging you to dance. With only six performers, we have a full sound and will draw a crowd with our energy and love for our music. Dancing is encouraged, we may even join you! Our band has the necessary equipment for our gigs. Our band is made up of four musicians and their instruments: a piano, three conga drums, a set of four timbales drums, a flute, a saxophone, and a cowbell. We don't need a large stage: we can fit on a 15''x15' space. We have speakers, microphones and stands, all wires we need, and we bring our own instruments, we just need the necessary outlets and at least 8' of head space for the speakers.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 31, 2021From Bellevue, WA

Son de Cuba had all my guests tapping their feet to the amazing music that we curated together. The band were extremely friendly, Tony had an amazing and infectious spirit and was so loving to our guests and my little kiddo. Even offered to have him play the Congo drums! I will surely invite Son de Cuba for my next event and highly recommend them for any wedding, birthday or celebration.

Son de Cuba:

Natasha and her family were so sweet to us. They treated us very well, made sure our needs were met. She made us feel at home at her property. Sweet family and guests were very hospitable. They wouldn’t let us leave before feeding us again. Definitely would love to work with this client again in the future. Thanks so much for everything!
