Phone: (510) 303-5253
Headed up by long time salsa dancer and instructor Jake Jacobs (a 20 year fixture at Cafe Cocomo!), VibraSÓN is one of the Bay Area’s newest Latin bands, coming together in September of 2013. The band is focused on playing salsa music by new and contemporary artists, as well as classic hits by Latin legends such as Joe Cuba.
VibraSÓN sets itself apart by featuring a smaller number of musicians, and placing the focus on the vibraphone – a popular salsa instrument in the 1960’s and 70’s, but one that has yet to see a modern resurgence. The band brings together much of the top talent from other great Bay Area bands such as Montuno Swing, Avance, and Borinquen. With band members possessing a background in both music and dance, VibraSÓN is very much focused on playing music that both dancers and music lovers can appreciate.
