Called “…the new Latin sound of Miami” by the Miami Herald, PALO! has become a favorite among South Florida’s live music devotees. PALO! plays a style of music they call “Afro-Cuban Funk”. Their appeal lies in their unmatched musical energy, catchy original songs, and amazing display of impromptu virtuosity. A mix of vintage Latin rhythms and contemporary urban sounds gives PALO! their unique, infectious style.
PALO! was formed in 2003 when Steve Roitstein (producer, keyboards) asked musicians Leslie Cartaya (vocals), Ed Calle (sax), Philbert Armenteros (vocals, percussion) and Raymer Olalde (vocals, percussion) to join him in a musical experiment combining Afro-Cuban music and jazz with funk beats.
PALO! currently enjoys a popular residency at Kimbaracumbara in Little Havana. They also perform at Hoy como Ayer, South Beach’s Jazid, Jazziz Bistro at the Hard Rock Casino, the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, and other area venues. They have been featured at private events for clients such as the Kiwanis of Little Havana, Cuba Libre Block Party, Downtown Miami’s Best, the Amigos For Kids Charity, Miami Book Fair International, and events for the City of Miami.
Currently, PALO! is completing their first studio CD, and is being featured on South Florida’s #1 Arbitron rated morning drive radio program, “El Show de Enrique y Joe” on La Kalle, 98.3.
North Shore Bandshell is at 73rd St and Collins Ave, Miami Beach. Show is from 6-9; FREE.
