Dance the Night Away with El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico
From San Juan, Puerto Rico, El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico are the most successful Salsa group of all time. Since forming in 1962, the band have released over 60 studio albums and earned the honorary title of La Universidad de la Salsa (The University of Salsa).
To the average music fan it can be slightly surreal to learn about bands like El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico. We feel so attached to the accepted totems of rock and roll, rap, pop and other genres of mainstream music that we feel that there can’t be any other enormously successful and influential bands, otherwise we would have heard of them. This is, quite obviously when you think about it, not the case.
The music world is far bigger than the one someone reads about in the NME or in a Beatles biography, and El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico are living proof of this. The band stands as the Salsa world’s true icons, able to sell out enormous arena concerts anywhere in Latin America and have over half a century’s worth of experience to their name. Come see them when they perform live at House of Blues on Thursday, July 5!
At Episcopal Catholic Apartments in Winter Haven, Florida, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this event on Thursday!
