Gregorio Uribe Big Band, is a 16-piece musical project that blends Latin rhythms with funk groove and jazz. This Big Band project brings together musicians from 6 countries around the world that under Gregorio Uribe’s leadership and vision create a masterpiece of Latin rhythms. With a remarkable compliance of trumpets, trombones and saxes soaring over an amazing percussion section and the leader of the group dancing to the beat while playing the accordion, this band brings new and modern arrangements to Latin music that could be compared to Second-Line Bands from New Orleans.
The band conquered Boston and the hearts of Americans and Latinos becoming a must in festivals and venues such as the well-known Regattabar, the Tito Puente Latin Series and Worcester Latin Festival to name a few around Massachusetts and New England. Uribe brought to life his vision to create a band that blended different genres such as funk and jazz with the intriguing folkloric rhythms of his native Colombia.
