This is the 2015 electronic press kit for Miami' Latin funk fusionistas Electric Piquete.
Formed in and by the gritty Miami suburb of Hialeah, FL, Electric Piquete has always been driven by a shared love of Latin jazz, funk and fusion and a mutual respect and admiration among the musicians. Two long-time friends, drummer/percussionist/vocalist Ed Rosado and bassist/vocalist Michael Mut, first began rehearsing, composing and arranging together in the summer of 2007. After a succession of temporary players, eventual members Chris Correoso on guitar and Rich Dixon on trumpet and flugelhorn joined the duo. After spending the better part of 2008 honing their sound and repertoire, the band made their live debut at the yearly Hialeahfest in the fall. Read the full bio here: http://electricpiquete.com/...
The track heard in the video is called "En La Playa Giron," the band' 2013 single and a tribute to the men of the 2506 Brigade, of which Mut and Dixon’s grandfathers both were members, inspired by the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. The track features Suenalo and the Spam Allstars' Chad Bernstein on conch and trombone and Tony “Smurphio” Laurencio from Afrobeta and ex-Suenalo on keyboards. Produced by Rosado; co-production, recoding, engineering and mixing by DJ Le Spam.
