Renowned salsa band 8 y Más is scheduled to perform on Thursday, July 5 at 7:00 pm in St. Mary’s Park, The Bronx (New York). The ensemble will present their Tribute to Tito Puente.
8 y Más is one of the hottest new bands on the contemporary Latin music scene today in the United States. Comprised of a team of internationally recognized musicians considered by many to be some of the best in New York City, 8 y Más boasts a stellar lineup including Bobby Allende, Angel Fernandez, Ricky Gonzalez and Marc Quiñones.
In November, 2006, the band released its first production, Juega Billar to much acclaim by salsa music lovers. For this special night, the band celebrates the musical legacy of the late, beloved salsero, Tito Puente called by many, “El Rey de los Timbales” (The King of the Timbales).
