The North Carolina’s Triangle area Latin dance band Orquesta K’Che, is the brainchild of percussionist/leader Billy Marrero. Orquesta K'Che ["kah-CHAY"] is now vying for the title of the Triangle's Latin Party Band. When on stage, the ten (10) piece band, (four piece horn section, five piece rhythm section and vocalist), will delight the audience by projecting the musical energy of its members, who are ready to ignite and excite your next event or activity.
“Orquesta K’che” is ready and looking forward in sharing its music and excitement and continue to make the public dance to their music!!!! Early on, we realized that all of the local Latin bands were playing only Salsa, so “K’che” decided to mix it up; the band's strategy for building their own niche in the salsa scene is twofold. First and foremost: they aim to be an all-purpose dance band. That means playing Cumbia, Merengue, Bolero, and Latin Jazz as well as Hot Salsa, rather than specializing in one genre. Second: by selecting classic charts to cover that no other band in the area is doing, along with some original charts, they bring variety to the scene.
Some fresh as well as familiar faces fill out K'Che's ranks. The band is guitar-heavy with bassist Paul Nunn playing both electric and upright bass & recently arrived from Cuba, Ariadna Nacianceno on keyboard. Horns include Matthew Parunak (trombone), Channing McCullough (sax), as well as veterans Alberto Carrasquillo & William Villalba (trumpets), and new comer Anthony Alvarez on lead vocal. The percussion section includes veterans Pako Santiago and Julio Correa. Countries of origin represented include USA, Venezuela, Cuba, and Puerto Rico.
Playing classy, disciplined arrangements, not aimless “descargas”, with tasteful soloing but no overplaying, K'Che isn't trying to reinvent the wheel; but it is trying to build a smoother ride. So far, so good; you have to like its professional approach and elbow grease. K'Che has definitely arrived. Expect this band to invigorate competition in the local salsa scene.
We would welcome the opportunity to discuss the possibility of performing at any activity that you may be planning, in which you would like to have the energy of a LIVE LATIN DANCE BAND.
