About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

MetroTang is our company, La Banda Ramirez is our Latin band. 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 CD is available on Amazon, Apple iTunes and CDBaby. In addition, for weddings we provide classical music on flute and piano, solo flute, or solo piano. We suggest Classical music for the wedding ceremony, jazz for the cocktail hour, Latin jazz for dinner, and salsa for dancing after dinner.

CelebrationReviewed on August 19, 2021From New York City, NY

We hired this band to play at the outdoor retirement party of our super who is originally from Puerto Rico. There were 200 people at the event. EVERYONE loved the band, especially our super. From the start, they were responsive and accommodating. They are talented and fully engaged a very diverse audience. As we had hoped, they got the audience dancing. They were a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend them for your next event, big or small.

Community EventReviewed on September 15, 2018From Bound Brook, NJ

We, the Bound Brook Cultural Arts Committee, were searching for a band to play salsa and swing. We had a salsa and swing workshop and really wanted the community to practice what they learned. All other bands did not want to experiment and challenge themselves with this request. Metrotang are true artists, willing to delve into unfamiliar territory and boy, did they deliver. Very professional and sensational. It was a great pleasure, and we hope to have them again at next year's Riverfest. If you want to impress your guest you must hire Metrotang, amazing talent.

FestivalReviewed on July 10, 2018From East Orange, NJ

The Arts Council of East Orange was completely pleased with the La Banda Ramirez. They played at one of our annual Jazz at the Plaza Concerts this summer . Our community is very diverse and the music La Banda Ramirez played was diverse with a variety of Latin music , including Palmeri and Tito Puente. The group was extremely professional and the sound was terrific.

Metrotang / La Banda Ramirez:

Thank you so much! It was an honor and a pleasure to play on the beautiful plaza for the Arts Council of East Orange.
