DE NUEVO EN LA ESCENA/ MAMA Award Winner( Best Latin Album- 2003)
Ready to got to the Studio . Look for New Releases in 2011.



In Oct. 2000, Cuban musicians Bobby Aleman & Armando Pilona met @ the "Cardinal Bar" (One of Madison's Premier Latino Clubs back in those days). They discussed the FLAVOR & richness of Cuban Music, and how fantastic and interesting it would be to provide Mad-Town with a taste of its very own homegrown Afro-Cuban Music. At that time Bobby was living in Austin, Texas; where he was the bass-player, singer/songwriter and arranger for "KARISON" (Austin Premier Afro-Cuban Jazz and Worldbeat band). "KARISON" toured with the "Bob Marley Festival National Tour" as headliners, from 1997-2000; while also sharing the stage with musical luminaries & grammy award winners such as "Brave Combo" and "Cubanismo" Rebirth Brass Band among others.

In 2002, Bobby moved back to Mad-Town to be near his daughter Raquel (later a vocalist with QF! and once again, hooked up with Armando Pilona and by feb. these (2) rumberos had convinced "Sabi" the owner of the "Casbah Restaurant" to give them a friday night weekly residency. And that was the begining of what it used to be "RUMBA ON THE SQUARE". Local Rumba aficionados and percussionist used to drop by, to showcase their skills and jam with the Cuban RUMBEROS. After the second week, Bobby decided to add a third element to this duet of bass and congas, and talked Sergio Rico Vacilon into joining them. Because "Rumba needs good vocals", Bobby decided to invite Ruben Marquez (former Olmeca co-founder) into lending his vocals abilities to this already HOT trio. Ruben was the fourth element and very helpful and influential. At a "Los Munequitos De Matanzas " concert at Luther's Blues", Bobby met Roberto Rengel and talked him into joining the quartet at the "Casbah".
The RUMBA got so HOT and Popular that, people were practically DANCING ON THE STREETS'. So eventually "THE CASBAH" got too small for !QUE-FLAVOR! and the band relocated to the "KING CLUB". !QUE-FLAVOR! residency on Wed Nights @ "KING CLUB" was one of the hottest Latino Nights in Mad -Town. After (18) months of wed nights residency @ KING CLUB. !QF! decided to spread the FLAVOR statewide getting monthly residencies @ "The Great Dane " (Downtown Madison") Speakeasy (Janesville) & Babalu" (Milwaukee) among others. Today's !QUE-FLAVOR! line -up has changed and improved a little bit , but the band is even HOTTER and tighter than at the begining.With a revamped repertoire designed to make you SHAKE your Booty. You can betcha the "THE RYTHM IS GONNA GETCHA"!
