About
PELLEJO SECO Premier Latin Wedding and Event Band of the San Francisco Bay Area .
Founded in the East Bay in 2004 by Ivan Camblor, Various critics have heralded Pellejo Seco as the next Buena Vista Social Club,They will be performing several tracks from their most recent recording "Despierta", featuring Grammy nominated artist Chuchito Valdez. This eclectic group has its roots in Traditional Cuban music and performs only original compositions The group produces a creative sound which combines the exquisite, popular and fantastic. In its evolutionary process, Pellejo Seco has caught its own distinct flavor which intertwines progressive Fusion Rock, Latin pop, Brazilian, Flamenco, Afro-Cuban and Jazz.

Ivan Camblor named the band, Pellejo Seco, and interprets it to mean "Raw Hide." For Ivan the name has many meanings, one of which is to describe the dry and leathered skin of a "campesino" or farmer.

"Enganchate," is the first CD for Pellejo Seco. The title can be loosely translated to mean "Grab on." As you listen to this album, you will definitely want to grab onto the exciting rollercoaster of musical themes and genres which winds you through a world full of complex energetic dance rhythms and beautiful love ballads.

All the music on this album is composed by Ivan Camblor Allende. Ivan is a new composer from Havana, Cuba. In Cuba, Ivan played his Tres (a Cuban guitar) with many traditional Cuban bands, many of which performed his songs. Other accomplishments for Ivan include a collaboration with Edesio Alejandro, the most prominent Cuban Soundtrack artist today, on two scores for the film, "Hacerse el Sueco." Ivan moved to
the United States in November 2004 to be with his wife, Deborah Simon-Weisberg, who is also featured on the CD singing "Calma."

Friendly, charming, talented, what else would you expect from a Cuban Quintet! Even one of the neighbors walked by the back of the venue with a sign requesting "Mas, Mas,Mas!" and asking for their card. They adapted to the venue easily and filled the event with wonderful music. One of our guest who left Cuba in 1958, was brought to tears by the end of the second set. He told me this was the best day of his life. Every guest had some superlative to say about the group. The musicians and the female vocalist were just top notch. If you want an memorable event for Latinos, Mixed group, or anyone who loves music, hire these guys!

Probably the best Cuban band on the West Coast. I would highly recommend them for any gig and especially for people who appreciate the Afro Cuban rhythms. I plan to work with Pellejo Seco again in the future. Our crowd filled the dance floor for the entire night.

I hired Pellejo Seco for a company party, and the experience was a delight. I did all the planning with Danilo Vitorte, the band manager, who was very nice and well organized. Everything went smoothly from set-up to tear down, and the music was wonderful. The bandmembers were good musicians, and very nice to work with. Everyone at the party enjoyed the music very much. I would highly recommend this band for any event!

We recently hired Pellejo Seco to play at my wife's Cuban-themed 30th Birthday Party, and they were a hit! I had initially found them online at Gigmasters and contacted Danilo, their manager. He immediately made contact and was very professional and efficient through the whole process. I had the opportunity to see them play prior to the party at The Cigar Bar in SF, so I knew they would be a perfect fit. We would highly recommend them to play at your next party!

The band was fantastic. They are extremely talented and have a great vibe. Pellejo Seco played for Salsa Night at our venue and the dancers LOVED them. They had a fun rapport with the audience. We hope the will want to play for us again.

I am extremely pleased with Pellejo Seco. Their performance was professional from the time that the tech person arrived to set-up the sound system until the time when the group members packed up their instruments to leave. The music and the songs performed were perfect for the special college event, Cuban Week/La Semana Cubana. The members of the group were friendly, allowing students and community members to talk to them. They also signed CDs.Pellejo Seco donated $5.00 from the sale of each CD to Project Shoes and Socks for Cuba, a program that provides shoes, socks and basic school supplies to school children in Cuba. I will, without a doubt, hire them again.

We hired Pellejo Seco for our wedding after hearing them on gigmasters and checking out their live performance at the Cigar Bar. We were so impressed with their talent and energy. At our wedding, we had a guitarist and trumpet player lead a procession from our ceremony to our reception, which was awesome!!! Then they played at the reception and it was truly amazing. The sound was great and everyone was on the dance floor, whether they could salsa or not. Their talent created a memorable wedding and we could not have been happier. They are great to work with and I will see them again in the future!

We hosted an Old Havana New Years Celebration at our Lodge in Yosemite this year. I thought finding the right band for our party would be hard. It was so easy through Gig Masters and Pellejo Seco made it that much easier. They fit our theme to a "T" and really brought the talent we were hoping for and looking for to keep our dance floor hottt! Great instrumentalists, very flexible with timing and changes throughout the evening and great fun to hang out with. We are looking forward to Copacabana Nights with them for New Years 2009!
