San Simon Live at the Ferry Slip Perth Amboy

San Simón is a seven piece combo that plays original soul songs with an Afro-Caribbean pulse, borrowing from American and Latin Caribbean music with both old and new influences.  The band has a 5 song EP of originals titled “Talk to Me.” A San Simón show is a fun party where band members push the energy over bopping funk grooves, hypnotic Afro-Cubans rhythms and rowdy Dominican beats. Charismatic front-lady JeSanté is a ‘tiguerasa’ flexing her pro MC skills on the mic, urging the crowd to move all the while belting soulful tunes in both English and Spanish.
