Avenida B | Artist Profile


Avenida B is a classic Salsa Dura band committed to playing Salsa for the dance community. With its roots in the Lower East Side of NYC, this new group has an old soul, committed to unearthing and reviving the old school sound, and timeless swing, of the kind of Salsa that truly makes you want to get up and dance. Through their unique repertoire and attention to such details as song speed, duration and structure, they hope to reconnect dancers and musicians in a meaningful way that reflects both the dancer’s experience and their love for the genre of music that we call Salsa Dura.

Boogaloo Assassins Debut CD “Old Love Dies Hard” out now on Sicario Records

Latin Boogaloo is back! Vintage sounding NYC-inspired Latin Boogaloo, Salsa, & Latin-Soul baked in the sunshine of modern Los Angeles. Served con sabor.

The Boogaloo Assassins’ mission is simple: bring la gente a funky good time, Latin-soul style. Formed in Los Angeles in 2007, the Boogaloo Assassins are the West Coast’s modern answer to New York City’s Latin music explosion of the late 1960s. Heavily indebted to the classic sounds of Spanish Harlem, Los Asesinos serve up their own late 1960’s style salsa and “Latin Boogaloo”, best described as a raucous fusion of American R&B with Cuban rhythms, sung in both English and Spanish. Perfect dance music for a Friday night, the Assassins are known throughout Los Angeles/OC for their packed, high-energy live shows.


Boogaloo Assassins long-awaited debut CD “Old Love Dies Hard” is 7 cuts of old-meets-new salsa, boogaloo, and Latin-soul. Taking inspiration from groundbreaking artists of NYC’s latin music explosion of the 1960′s, “Old Love Dies Hard” reinterprets and creates classic Latin dance music perfect for today’s dancefloor. Singles such as “Mi Jeva” (featured in feature film Celeste and Jesse Forever) “No No No” (a classic reimagining of the blues/reggae classic) and straight-latin-Boogaloo-meets-the-Beach-Boys romp “Do You Wanna Dance” are 3 of the disc’s highlights.Boogaloo Assassins music is inspired by Latin Boogaloo, Latin Soul, Salsa, Latin Funk, Guajira, Cha-Cha, Pachanga, Son Montuno y mucho mas.
