The danzón developed in the second half of the 19th century, and has been an important root for Cuban music up to the present day. The precursors of danzón are the contradanza, and the habanera, which are popular Cuban dance forms.

This year they where back in Queens, New York featuring 3 live bands: SonSublime, La Charanga 76 and Grupo Irék plus DJ Broadway in-between sets. This traditional Cuban event that dates back to 1920s Havana, and which was started here in the NYC Metro area 45 years ago in 1969 by El Club Cubano Inter-Americano, has throughout the years, attracted Cuban music lovers and dancers from the tri-state, as well as states as far away as Florida, and has become the leading event that maintains Cuban culture and history in the North Eastern United States. This event is open to the public - all are welcome.

SonSublime is New York's Top Cuban Charanga orchestra, playing the classic styles of Danzón, Cha-Cha-Chá and Son. SonSublime embraces these classic styles and enhances them with a fresh, energetic sound adored by young and mature dancers alike.

SonSublime's lead singer, Cuban-born Jesse Herrero, has led the band to new heights while maintaining the classical traditions of his native land. Herrero's singing career began with Mike Perez, one of the key members of SonSublime. In 1972 Jesse joined forces with Mike and his band, Tipica New York. In 1973, legendary, virtuoso Felix (Pupi) Legarretta, violinist, flautist and a member of the Fania All Stars, recruited Jesse into his band, Pupi y Su Charanga.

With the support of his friends, club owners and promoters, in 1975, Jesse Herrero launched his exciting young swinging Charanga band in New York City, under the name Sublime, and the city fell in love with his sound. In 1977 Jesse received a recording contract from TR Records, whose owner was the late Tito Rodriguez, a legendary singer and orchestra leader. Their first hit Coqueta put Sublime on top of the New York City Latin music scene. In 1979 Sublime recorded TTH Recording Inc. (Ten Top Hits) bringing another radio hit: "El Mujeriego".

Sublime became well established in the music industry. Cuban singer and businessman, Roberto Torres decided to record Jesse Herrero's Sublime with his label SAR - Guajiro Records. Under SAR - Guajiro Records, Roberto Torres produced "Simplemente" Sublime and "Masitas de Pollo." After ten glorious years of bringing great Charanga music to the scene, Jesse officially dissolved the band in 1985 to pursue other interests in the world of finance.

Fifteen years later, in 2000, after much encouragement from musicians and friends, the group reformed as SonSublime. In March 2001, Jesse Herrero's own recording label, LASEMCo., released its first recording "Irresistible" under the new name, SonSublime. This was followed by their second recording, the classic "Gran Reserva", which was released in October 2002 and the third most recent "Bailando Con SonSublime" in 2006.
