Son Salvaje is a Tampa, Fl based Latin band with an All-Star line up of musicians led by Nalisio Taveras. Be it Salsa, Cha-Cha, Merengue, Bachata, Bolero, Latin Jazz, you name it, they PLAY it! The talented musicians in this band have played with and/or opened up for the likes of Eddie Palmieri, Pete “El Conde” Rodriguez, Ismael Miranda, Justo Betancourt, Paquito Guzman, Lalo Rodriguez, Tito Gomez, Hector Tricorche, Roberto Blades, Frankie Negron, Kevin Ceballo, Charlie Cruz, Anthony Cruz, Ray De La Paz, Paquito D’Rivera, Branford Marsalis, Claudio Roditi, and Arturo Sandoval (to name a few) and the incredibly seasoned compositional skills commanded by many members in this band makes it possible for this unit to arrange and play literally ANY song under the sun (a feat that VERY FEW bands can boast).
At full capacity, Son Salvaje is comprised of an impressive 11 man ensemble featuring a robust rhythm section (guitar, piano, bass, timbales, congas, bongo), a dynamic horn section (complete with trumpets, trombones, and sax) and an experienced team of singers. The size of the band, however, can and has been altered to as few as 6 musicians (to better accommodate the needs of clients or venues). With unbelievable sound, style, and musicianship AND with some of the most competitive rates in town, this band CAN’T be beat!
