They play and sing the way this music should be done! A real Mambo band that keep in tune with tradition. As the tireless bandleader and timbalero of this orchestra, Don Perinon is one of the most exponents of big band salsa in Puerto Rico.

The singing of Rico Walker, Josue Rosado and Joe Gonzalez are off the chart. The individual and collective performances are impressive.
