The band have recently played a number of notable events and festivals including The Cork Jazz Festival, The Shetland Folk Festival, The Africa Oye Festival and a live session for Sean Rafferty on BBC Radio 3.

Son Cubano are available to hire in a number of line-ups from a trio to 10-piece band. For more information on hiring this Cuban function band please get in touch.

Son Cubano Reviews
    Thanks so much, we had a fantastic evening! I took my mum along and she was the first up dancing! By the end of the night most of the audience were at the front dancing which was great. It’s the first time that we have tried something like this and I am really pleased with how it all went, the workshop worked really well and lots of positive feedback.

    The band performed at our event in London and it provided a great atmosphere for the drinks reception and it gave the event a real summer feeling. The band were very friendly and happy and it was a great pleasure having them at our event.

    Radio 3: Sean Rafferty presents, with live music from a band of UK-based Cuban musicians in the world-famous Buena Vista Social Club tradition. Music to keep us all young, the UK's very own Buena Vista band…tremendous, music like that and we are all feeling terrific if their music doesn't make you move, there's no hope for you! Extraordinary music, bringing sunshine and rhythm.
