Carolyn and crew were great to work with and very accommodating...They went the extra mile. Everyone at our reception raved about their performance. Their sound is authentic and well rehearsed. Highly recommended.
La Banda Ramirez plays Cuban classics, salsa arrangement, Latin jazz cover tunes (Celia Cruz, Eddie and Charlie Palmieri, Paquito D'Rivera, Irakere), and other Latin styles, including cumbia, vallenato, and bachata. Look in our samples for these titles: Soy Antillana, El cuarto de Tula, Song for Maura, Lo que va a pasar, Midnight Mambo.
MetroTang is also our first CD of tunes written by our composer/percussionist/bandleader Chacho Ramirez. His work brings a unique angle to jazz by combining African drumming rhythms with funky bass lines and long flowing melodies. Look in our samples for these titles: Lights Out, I'm Moanin' Too, Funky Voyage, Melba's Mambo, Blues for Y'All. The full CD is available at
In addition, for weddings we provide classical music on flute and piano and/or guitar. We recommend Classical music for the wedding ceremony, jazz for the cocktail hour, Latin jazz for dinner, and salsa for dancing after dinner. What a line-up!
