In 1998 executive producer Nissim J. Baly was looking to expand his catalog of latin music sound recordings. A long time salsa music aficionado, Baly approached musician and composer friend Hector Manuel Rivera with the idea of producing a record for the recently launched imprint of Dimelo! Records. After much collaboration, a new sound representative of their hometown of Los Angeles was crafted; Orquesta Tabaco y Ron was born.

Orquesta Tabaco Y Ron is a 12 piece "Big-Band" orchestra, composed of musicians from all over Latin America including Puerto Rico, Cuba, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Peru, Colombia and Mexico. OTR's high-energy, hard-edged brand of salsa music has appealed to devoted salsa dancers and Latin music DJ's worldwide. OTR's contagious rhythms produce an energy that revives the almost extinct salsa sound of generations past.

Orquesta Tabaco Y Ron has recorded five studio albums, a remix production, and multiple compilations exclusively for Dimelo! Records. Their arsenal of hard salsa tracks has gained OTR recognition and respect by tropical music aficionados and musicians worldwide!

HECTOR MANUEL RIVERA

Hector Manuel Rivera has produced and arranged all the Orquesta Tabaco Y Ron productions. He has solely recorded, engineered and mastered the majority of their releases. He is also the piano player, band leader and is known to his fellow musicians as "El Pianista Del Barrio." Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Hector Manuel discovered his passion for music at the age of nine while being inspired by such artists as the Sonora Ponceña and Papo Luca on the piano. These great artists influenced the young aspiring musician to become fascinated by the sound of salsa music, later triggering him to become obsessed with the piano. Hector Manuel would eventually claim the piano as a musical weapon of his own.

MARTIN PADILLA

Martin Padilla, the distinct lead vocalist of Orquesta Tabaco Y Ron, possesses the power to captivate audiences with his authentic tone. Referred to as "El Sonero del Barrio", Martin was born in Yaucco, the coffee growing zone of Puerto Rico. His musical style was greatly influenced by the old-school salsa greats such as Willie Colon, Johnny Pacheco, Sonora Ponceña, and other legendary Fania heavies. Martin is an essential part of the make-up of OTR. His influence can be heard on all the bands songs, through original compositions and amazing improvisations, also known as "soneos".

ERIC TORRES

Eric Francis Torres Jimenez, co-lead vocalist for Orquesta Tabaco Y Ron was born in San Jose, Costa Rica. From an early age Eric started gaining interest in music which was inspired and motivated by his father Marcos Torres. Having incredible aspirations, Eric made the decision to expand his career by traveling to Los Angeles. In California, Eric was promptly introduced to and joined a Salsa Band called the "Latin Fusion Band". In a short period of time Eric's name became popular among Salsa musicians and various music directors; such connections earned him contracts to sing as a back-up singer for many well known Salsa singers such as Oscar De Leon, Tito Nieves, Gilberto Santa Rosa, & Celia Cruz. In 1999, Eric joined Orquesta Tabaco Y Ron and has continued to delight fans with his highly successful performances in the United States and other parts of the world.

His musical style was greatly influenced by the old-school salsa greats such as Willie Colon, Johnny Pacheco, Sonora Ponceña, and other legendary Fania heavies. Martin is an essential part of the make-up of OTR. His influence can be heard on all the bands songs, through original compositions and amazing improvisations, also known as "soneos".

ERIC TORRES

Eric Francis Torres Jimenez, co-lead vocalist for Orquesta Tabaco Y Ron was born in San Jose, Costa Rica. From an early age Eric started gaining interest in music which was inspired and motivated by his father Marcos Torres.

In California, Eric was promptly introduced to and joined a Salsa Band called the "Latin Fusion Band". In a short period of time Eric's name became popular among Salsa musicians and various music directors; such connections earned him contracts to sing as a back-up singer for many well known Salsa singers such as Oscar De Leon, Tito Nieves, Gilberto Santa Rosa, & Celia Cruz.

Sombra Quieta

Thursday_SOMBRA.jpg

Sombra Quieta is a band that fuses traditional Rumba Flamenca with South America sounds, using these influences to create a flavorful, moving and rhythmic style of music. Sombra Quieta performs both originals and cover songs in the musical vein of the Gipsy Kings, Ottmar Liebert, and Latin jazz greats.

The band members are from an array of musical backgrounds, such as Flamenco, Salsa, Jazz, Afro-Cuban Jazz, and World Beat. This mixture of musical influences is what makes Sombra Quieta’s music so attractive and appealing to all audiences.

Sombra Quieta’s performances prove to be hypnotic, tugging the audience to its feet, yet it equally transitions into high-energy guitar and percussion solos. The vocals go from dreamingly gentle to unrelentingly demanding your attention.

Sombra Quieta has hit nearly every hottest venue in the Inland Empire, Orange and San Diego County, as well as the Los Angeles.
