About the band:

Hailing from Puerto Rico and then New Mexico, bilingual artist SARAH VINCENTY has amazed audiences with her spectacular, soaring vocals and dazzling dance moves. Along with singing the National Anthem for UNM Basketball Season, she has performed at the El Paso Texas Dancing in the City Festival, the International Balloon Fiesta, the San Francisco Fillmore Salsa Festival, the Santa Fe Bandstand, NM’s Salsa Under the Stars, and the Route 66 Summer Fest, among many others. Sarah was recently featured as an artist in the book "Sheet Music - Diary of a Songwriter” by Devine Evans.

Bassist, producer and studio engineer MICHAEL LAZARUS is a 2X Latin Grammy® Winner with extensive recording credits and international touring / festival experience. A native of Puerto Rico, he has left an indelible mark on the Bay Area music community via his work with the Pacific Mambo Orchestra and worldwide through his website (Home of Cuban Music), arguably the largest online Latin music portal bar none. 

Drummer JUSTIN McCOY is a gifted multi-instrumentalist from Chicago, Illinois with over two decades of professional experience as a pianist, organist, opera singer, voice actor and stage actor with numerous stages and recording credits. When he isn't performing, he is a Quality Assurance and Customer Experience Manager for Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Organist for Walnut Creek United Methodist Church and a rehearsal director and accompanist for the San Francisco Boys Chorus.

Freelance guitarist and vocalist BRENDAN WHELAN joined the band armed with his arsenal of killer tones, textures and effects. An interest in many styles of music, including blues, jazz, classic rock, hard and progressive rock styles, plus a lifetime of engineering and performing in the heart of Silicon Valley, have led him to perfect his guitar rig and shredding style. Brendan plays with the band when we travel into the North Bay Area and beyond. He's right in the pocket with our deep grooves so we are really happy to have him.

OSCAR ESTRELLA is a Cuban-born guitarist, singer and songwriter who was part of the early Latin Rock scene in San Francisco with his original group "Sapo". He has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada, and continues to tour with Latin legends "Malo". His musical influences range widely, from the streets of Matanzas, Cuba to the Mission District S.F. and beyond.
