DOORS @ 8:30 / MUSIC @ 9PM
JOIN US ON TUESDAY NIGHTS IN JANUARY FOR SALSA BAND, TIMBEROS DEL NORTE!
Deep danceable grooves driven by ebullient horns and vocals mark this collection of Cuban music that sounds like it could have come straight out of Havana but was made right here.
— Peter Blackstock, Austin American-Statesman.
Led by composer-producer and award winning salsa pianist Paul Matthews, Timberos Del Norte are Austin’s ambassadors of timba, a popular Cuban genre that incorporates elements of salsa, American funk, R&B and Afro-Cuban folkloric music. Matthews is joined by some of Texas’ most accomplished and award-winning musicians, including Multiple Grammy and Latin Grammy winning horn arranger and trombonist, Raul “Ralo” Vallejo.
— Ian Morales, Austin Vida Magazine
