Hello! I'm looking for recommendations for a salsa band to play at our reception. We (and many of our guests) are dancers, so we will really appreciate a good salsa band that knows how to keep people on the dance floor. Any recommendations/guidance will be appreciated!

I need to look into my wedding stuff but I also dance salsa in NY and used Jose Gaetan. His band is excellent and works with Michael Stuart. For now do a search on him and let him know that Tracy, I got married at El Convento last year July 15th. He has a fb page. Let me know if u have any luck if not I will get his info this week for you.

Hi tracy2179,
We went to PR this month to finalize details for our wedding in Feb, and Jose Gaetan Rivera and his orquesta happened to be playing at a little place near where we were, so we went and heard them, they sounded excellent! Thanks again for the recommendation, we are booking them! Take care,
Jessica
