Description

Price from: £800
We are happy to travel anywhere but the fee takes into account travel costs as well as the time involved to get to you. We are based in Reading and London. As an example, to play within a 25 mile radius of Reading, the fee would be £800 for the 5 piece and £1400 for the 8 piece.

Cafecito plays a lively pre-salsa style of music still heard on the streets of old Havana today - cha cha chas, danzones, mambos and boleros as well as Latin jazz, which you will have heard a flavour of in the Buena Vista Social Club recordings. Our main repertoire includes Cuban classics from the 1930’s to the 1960’s. Cafecito’s eight piece dance band is lead Cuban singer, violin, flute, piano (we bring our own), congas, bongos/guiro, timbales and double bass and the musicians also sing backing vocals. We can also perform as a five piece (flute, piano, double bass and 2 percussionists) for background music such as a drinks reception.

"What an amazing outfit. Booked them to come down and play for my birthday bash in Cornwall and they didn't disappoint! Every man, woman and child was up on their feet dancing, the music was so infectious. Oozing with Cuban charisma they transported us back to the streets of old Havana. " (S. F.)

"A wonderful ensemble - their performance was joyful, slick and carefree all at once. Each of the musicians were very talented and charismatic in their own right, making for a very professional group. We booked them for our university ball and everyone loved their Cuban sound. A really lovely and easy going group of people too, I'd highly recommend booking Cafecito for any sort of event when you want people up on their feet dancing, or to create a sophisticated and fun summery atmosphere."" - Al...
