East End Collected3 Celebratory Concert with Mambo Loco!

Mambo Loco  will be in the house to help us celebrate Paton Miller and the artists of East End Collected3, closing on Monday, May 29.

Formed in 2003, Mambo Loco has become synonymous with the classic music of Afro-Cuban and Puerto Rican origin. During the past several years Larry, Bill, Cristian, Wayne and Alfredo have been bringing the best of “Old School” Latin and Latin Jazz music to the Long Island, NY area. Lead vocal and percussionist Larry Belford has been performing since he was a child growing up on New York’s Long Island. As an adult he has performed in or with many of the best Latin groups in NY including the Bad Street Boys, Charlie Rodriguez, Johnny Pacheco, Roberto Torres and Celia Cruz. His fiery playing and vocals are the focal point of the band.

 A founding member and highly regarded in the top NYC Latin circuit, conguero, percussionist and vocalist Cristian Rivera has over the past decade performed and toured with Frankie Morales, Tito Puente, Nestor Torres and Willie Colon just to name a few. Since joining the group in 2007, Alfredo Gonzalez, trombone, violin, percussion & vocals has added a certain “Sabor Latino” that only a person of his native Puerto Rican heritage can convey. A truly “versatile” musician in every sense of the word, he has performed with Orquesta Mulenze and Manny Oquendo y Conjunto Libre.

Bill Smith, piano and vocals, brings to each performance a varied palate of musical styles. After obtaining his degree at Berklee College, he has over the years been a member or performed with the Skatilites, Monty Alexander, Dr. John and Bakithi Kumalo. Wayne Burgess, bass & vocals, also a Berklee alumnus, anchors the group with many years of live performance experience, arranging and record production. From coast to coast he has performed with Orquesta Opa Opa , Johnny Martinez Orquesta, The Drifters, The Coasters and Billy Ekstine.
