Street Salsa at SOB’s

On Friday, August 6 the 11-piece salsa band, La Excelencia, is returning to SOB’s. La Excelencia is an untraditional salsa band as they replace strings and synthesizers with hard-hitting percussion and brass. Their lyrics are about poverty and discrimination instead of the usual romanticism that salsa expresses. The band also wears sneakers and casual clothes on stage instead of formal attire. Although they are somewhat unconventional their music will no doubt astound you. La Excelencia was featured in the New York Times two weeks ago before their performance at the Lincoln Center on Friday the 16th. View the New York Times article HERE
