VibraSON
Latin Music Band
California, USA





Biography:

Classic Salsa, Mambo, and Boogaloo meet Contemporary Latin. The cool sound of vibraphone electrifies dancers and captures the Latin music from the smoky clubs in the Boogaloo era with a modern twist. A favorite of mambo/salsa dancers everywhere. VibraSÓN's music respects and honors the old -classic salsa from the Boogaloo era of the 1960s- while adding a contemporary feel to the sound, with dancers in mind. The vibraphone-centric format echoes the sounds of an era of Latin Music where big bands gave way to smaller and hipper club-sized ensembles. The smoothness of the vibraphone embraces the intimacy of a compact group that connects with its surroundings in clubs with dancers practically on top of the stage. Swing is king in these settings, and VibraSÓN glorifies the tightness of a band made up of percussion instruments, adding the vocal character of modern songs. The band was founded by Jake Jacobs, a Salsa dancer/instructor for over 20 years in the Bay Area, whose father was a pianist, and uncle played xylophone/vibes. Veteran musicians, Marco Diaz on piano, Saul Sierra on bass, along with experienced percussionists Carlos Caro and Julio Perez bring a crew of players long seasoned in diverse styles of Latin music. Vibraphonist Charlie Barreda was heavily influenced by Cal Tjader, a Bay Area legend and role model for many generations of Latin players. Multi-percussionist, Christian Pepin, from a legendary musical family in New York, gives a contemporary sound to the rhythm section. Finally, Luis Morales, with a rich past singing salsa, R&B, and alternative rock rounds out the group. VibraSÓN brings traditional sounds of Latin Music together with modern rhythms, soulful vocals, and adventurous solos.
