PuertoRicans.Com - Exclusive Special Edition

Super night at 88 Keys Lounge with 8 y Mas!

The founders of 8 y Mas - Marc, Bobby, Ricky and Angel -are music veterans who earned their stripes at the Corso and its contemporaries, where the repertoire did not consist only of Salsa at 180 bpm’s. You had to play Son Montunos, Cha-cha’s, Descargas as well as acid Salsa in order to leave the club feeling that you held your own against the band that followed or preceded you. Generally, at the Corso, you had two to four slammin’ bands every night.

The individuals mentioned above have remained viable in Salsa – just check out the credits on many recordings of the last 3 decades – as well as in other genres (The Allman Bros., David Byrne, Paul Simon, Spyro Gyra, Jeniffer Lopez, Marc Anthony). But their roots go back to the Corso.
8 y Mas’ debut CD, Juega Billar, is a manifestation of these roots. Along with Ruben Rodriguez, Frankie Vazquez, Raul Agraz and Ozzie Melendez, the group brings with it a rich history that represents the quintessential New York Latino.

We shared with other members from Swing Sabroso. Also from Marc Anthony's band Erben Perez, Mario Guini, Curtis Rodriguez among others.

And our friend from TheNightLifeSpot.com Thanks Curtis Van Dross for your support

Happy Birthday Arturo from PuertoRicans.Com!
