Hey all, today is a great day for the salsa band that I co-direct (as well as arrange and play piano for), Orquesta GarDel. We are the cover article for the Independent Weekly, the Triangle’s premiere alternative weekly newspaper (North Carolina’s Village Voice, if you will).

Here is a link to the article, which traces the story of the band’s founding to it’s future aspirations and cultural significance in the larger Triangle music scene.

I am so proud of this giant, hard-working band of musicians from many backgrounds. It is great to be able to share our story with a wider audience.

Please read the article, check out GarDel’s music, watch for new shows, and let me know what you think! I’ve never been quoted so much before…
