Bass Guitar, Other Percussion.

ABOUT

Our members were all performing musicians, as well as pastoral musicians, prior to forming the band in 2012. We now have a diverse and lively bilingual repertoire which includes covers of timeless Romantic and Jazz Standards, Gipsy Flamenco-Rumbas (eg. Gipsy Kings), Oldies and Pop songs by various English and Spanish groups as well as our own Original Material.

What is unique about us is that our material reflects a multicultural perspective, often combining Spanish and English lyrics within the same song, even slipping in some languages we don't speak but enjoy singing anyway! As our name implies, we blend the best of multiple cultures as we strive to convey the pleasure and richness of the music that has so enhanced our own lives.

We are currently seeking a bass player who can play (or is willing to learn) Latin rhythms and a percussionist who can play Congas, Bongos, and Timbales. So if you have a passion for music, a sense of humor, and think you'd enjoy working with a laid-back group of crazy middle aged musicians who occasionally make some extra income doing what they love most, let us know! Spanish proficiency (or face paint) not required. Contact: seven nine two - ninety-eight forty-eight. If no answer, please leave a message with a call-back number.
