La Orquesta El Vucko is not your typical Latin band.
Led by a master pianist, they play Salsa, Afro-Cuban, BeBop classics in Latin style, & South American hits!
Jackie Ryan, the great one, will be singing Latin/Brazilian selections in Spanish and Portuguese.
Orestes Vilato (who has played and recorded with the famous Latin musicians like Eddie Palmieri), is a world-class percussionist and King of the timbales.
Bay Area favorite Noel Jewkes is on flute and reeds, with standout bassist Paul Chambers, and the talented Hector Lugo on congas rounding out the group.
El Vucko is a pulsing Latin Band with a Twist!
