"I booked Fiesta Latina for our annual company summer party, seeing as it was a Latin-themed party the band were a perfect fit.
The booking process with easy and Rory was efficient getting over all the information I needed.
We split the performances into two, which got more up-tempo as the evening went on.
The vocals and quality of the musicians were outstanding and the band blended in well with our guests.
The live performance definitely made the party all that more memorable, I certainly recommend booking the band for your next party!"

"Thank you so much for playing at our wedding! It was amazing. I loved the way you split the sets into 2 genres and it worked perfectly I think. Also thank you so much for putting so much time and effort into our request songs. As you could probably tell they went down a treat with everyone there...not only those within our band who knew and loved them but also our friends and family who had never heard anything like loved it too!
You guys are truly talented and from start to finish complete professionals. Thank you so much for bringing the rhythms and feel of Latin America and Brazil to our wedding. It was absolutely perfect. If you need me to write any more as a recommendation then please just let me know as I could go on forever!
Thank you once again and hopefully our paths will cross in the future somewhere somehow!"

"Was a pleasure to meet you and I loved the band. Just wish I could have stayed longer and had a bunch of my dancers and Latin music fans with me to also enjoy! I'll definitely bear you guys in mind when we need a Latin Band. :-)

We regret to announce the discontinuation of our northern branch of Fiesta Latina ("Fiesta Latina North"). The band is no longer offering discounts for the north-west of the UK. Henceforth all bookings will be quoted from London. We're sad to say goodbye to our twin. We've had an amazing journey - 3 and a half years!
Don't worry, you can still find out more and book Vela Vox by visiting http://www.velavox.com/.
Please note that this won't affect any existing bookings, and the change will take effect for any event on or after 1st September 2018. Just to clarify, Fiesta Latina (our original southern branch) is still fully active and operational: only our northern branch is closed. Please visit www.fiesta-latina.co.uk for the latest info.
"A wonderful band and nice people. It certainly made the evening with everyone really enjoying them and partying along. If I was doing a Cuban event again I would not hesitate to hire them again."

Brazil's music is a rich and diverse cultural heritage. The subcontinent includes a myriad of styles far too numerous to mention here, a treasure trove of musical gems. At Red & Black Music, Brazilian music has always been very close to the heart. In recognition of this, we offer Brazilian setups across 3 out of our 4 projects.
Rory's Brazilian setup focuses on jazz. The trio grew our of Rory's love of Bossa Nova and Brazilian music. Blending the warm, breezy tones of the strummed acoustic guitar and the crisp, bass notes of the cajon with saxophone, flute and vocals, the trio interpret a diverse range of repertoire by Tom Jobim, Toquinho, Toninho Horta, Roberto Menescal, Noel Rosa, Milton Nascimento, Marcos Valle, Luis Bonfa, Jorge Ben Jor, Ivan Lins, Durval Ferreira and Chico Buarque as well as Rory's own compositions.
"We thoroughly enjoyed Fiesta Latina's performance. Their music and energy had everyone off their chairs and dancing. Everyone that came seemed to really enjoy the night, glad they got up dancing when a few drinks had been drunk!!! Thanks so much for a great evening."
Joanna Brett, Nailsworth Festival, May, 2018
Fiesta Latina recreates the sizzling, scorching sounds of Latin America and the Caribbean with an uplifting sound which is inspiring and unifying, mixing salsa with other influences to bring you a fresh, funky and instant Latin house party experience. With its compact 3 piece line-up of vocals, piano, percussion and trumpet, Fiesta Latina distils a vibrant and stylish mix of salsa, funk, soul and samba, from Cuban classics and laid back Brazilian beats right through to the present day.

Fiesta Latina is thrilled to welcome new vocalist all the way from Chile: Daniela Gallini Chevesich!
Daniela's repertoire spans from Old World Habana Vieja (Old Havana); the romantic lilts of Buena Vista Social Club and Celia Cruz, through the eclectic dance beats of Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan and Juan Luis Guerra, all the way to the contemporary Cuban street sounds of Gente De Zona and Issac Delgado... Grab a bottle of rum and get down to some Latin rhythms. ¡Sabor!

"Rory gave a great performance – was versatile and worked alongside the Samba dancers to give a great evening’s entertainment. He was a great addition to the ‘Latino’ room. It was nice of him to leave us a play set when he finished playing live."
