'Compelling dance music that will have you on the dance floor all night'!

Friday 2nd Dec, 7.00-11.30pm

@ The Maude, Leek, Staffordshire, ST13 5HB

Siete Rayos is a new, UK based, six-piece Salsa/Timba band that has grown from the popular Cuban music quartet, Mojito Salsa. Our inspiration for this project is simply our favourite dance music from Cuba (of course), son montuno, salsa, and timba. The band has a strong focus on modern Cuban dance music, and with a few traditional gems nestled in the mix.


Siete Rayos is fronted by multi-instrumentalist, Juan Sanchez, on trombone, trumpet and lead vocals. Juan is from Holguin, in eastern Cuba, the home of Cuban Son, he is joined by piano supremo, Andrzej Baranek, bass master, David Tompkins, and percussionist, Christian Weaver, who have been playing together for many years (in groups such as Orquesta Timbala and Mojito Salsa). Drummer, Laurie Agnew, and trombonist, Jonny Enright join the core players to create the explosive sound and fresh outlook of the new sextet.

Expect their interpretations of some the hits of the great salsa orchestras of Cuba, such as Los Van Van, Manolito y Su Trabujo, and Havana De Primera: solid Cuban music infused with blistering solos and infectious rhythms. Compelling dance music that will have you on the dance floor all night!
