PA'LANTE! Highly danceable, irresistible Latin jazz, salsa, and Afro Caribbean rhythms! Pa'lante's 10-piece band will turn up the heat at the Jack London Revue with their exhilarating, tight arrangements and riveting solos. Come out and enjoy a special evening of soul-stirring Latin jazz and salsa, reflecting Pa'lante members' deep jazz and Latin music roots. Three horns, violin, flute, two fabulous lead vocalists and multiple outstanding percussionists combine with the highly creative rhythm section for a compelling big band sound.
A rich multicultural experience, a Pa'lante concert reflects the influences of Cuban and Latin music masters like Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri and Mongo Santamaria, as well as the modern trends in Cuban and Caribbean music.
The band is beloved by dancers for their high-spirited presentation of salsa, timba, merengue, Cuban son, cumbia, cha cha cha and other danceable styles. The musicians are outstanding players, deeply accomplished in Latin music and jazz. They may even surprise you from time to time with an Afro Cuban folkloric number, always a treat. It has now come time to take a project that Phillips says, "Has been a works for a while," to the front of the line. With the ever funky Justin Calhoun on the drums and the exceptional Jason Butterworth on guitar Plutons is amping up for the Summer of 2016 with the release of their record "In The Bag".
