Called the “best Latin band north of the Bay Area,” the Latin Peppers always bring irresistible, high energy salsa and Latin dance music with an Afro-Cuban feel. The members have many years performing experience throughout the Northcoast, led by Jimmy Durchslag on trombone, who also does the arrangements. Jimmy has appeared with numerous Latin bands including local favorites Ponche and Kachimbo. He teaches the Latin ensemble at the annual Lark Music Camp in Mendocino. Orlando Morales plays timbales, congas and percussion. He has been a stalwart of the Latin scene in the SF Bay Area for many years and a regular with several Humboldt County bands. The group also includes Tim Randles of Ponche and RLA and Music Director of Dell’ Arte on piano, James Zeller on trombone, leader of the James Zeller trio, Cyrus Wong-Weissman on bass, and Jon Lewis on congas. The Latin Peppers repertoire features compelling music from Tito Puente to Eddie Palmieri, Cubanismo Mongo Santamaria as well as original tunes. The ensemble showcases compelling rhythms, tight ensemble playing and soulful improvisation.
