Every band has a story and this one is like so many others: A couple of musicians with an idea. It was an old recording of Mongo Santamaria doing a cover of “Day Tripper” as an Afro-Cuban cha cha cha dance beat that inspired a group of like-minded musical explorers to expand that nugget of an idea into a full blown concept.
We started our musical journey at a neighborhood Mexican restaurant in 2018 called El Golfo. Cinco de Mayo was coming up. They wanted a band, and we went for it. We hit a groove drawing on Latin music traditions like mambo, cumbia, cha cha cha, bossa nova, merengue, bolero and others. We also struck a chord with generations of Beatles lovers. In the experimental spirit of the Fab Four, let us take you on an adventure of transforming their beloved songs into something new, eclectic and fun.
