Thanks to everyone who came down to support us at Matt & Phreds Jazz Club in Manchester. I've never seen the club so maxxed out! We had the audience dancing on the tables, clapping in clave and singing along.
Highlights included the Santana anthem 'Primavera', Sarita's Spanish rapping on 'La Vida es un Carnaval' and the Tito Puente medley on Ran Kan Kan / Oye Como Va - with the audience all singing along.
By the end of it, they were screaming for more - we had to do 2 encores; the Pete Rodriguez boogaloo classic 'I Like It', culminating in a freestyle jam (or marmalade!) on the Sergio Mendes standard 'Mais Que Nada'.
Check back here soon for more gigs from this outstanding band of crazy gringos.
