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."

Review by Michelle R.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on January 14, 2023From San Jose, CA

I hired Pellejo Seco for my husband’s surprise birthday celebration and it was the best band choice I could have made. They were so amazing and engaging and had most of my guests dancing the whole time. I received many compliments about their music. Working with their manager Danilo was so easy and he was very easy to work with and accommodating. We would 100% hire them again for any big future parties!
