Biography

Poco Loco is an 8-piece band that adds spice to any event. With a cross-genre repertoire specializing in Latin and Straight-Ahead Jazz, this group plays fun, danceable music suitable for any age. Influences include the Latin Jazz greats Cal Tjader and Tito Puente, with contemporary influences by the Afro-Cuban All Stars and Poncho Sanchez. One of our greatest strengths is our versatility; we can play music that will make people want to get up and dance - and can also perform soft, laid-back bossas to create a calm and relaxed atmosphere. We incorporate plenty of original compositions, and can also revamp well-known tunes and perform them in an entirely new way. In a nutshell, our music is fun, rhythmic and makes the listener feel like moving.
