Join us as we kick off the free Thursday night conert series with a Latin flavor and the high-energy sounds of San Diego's B-Side Players
The B-Side Players make music without borders or boundaries. On Fire In The Youth,
their seventh album and first for Concord/Picante, they continue
exploring the multifaceted grooves of Latin America and the Caribbean,
incorporating the sounds of Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico and Brazil with the
funk, rock, jazz and hip-hop rhythms of their homeland. With Latin music
currently dominating the charts in most of the world, The B-Side
Players are uniquely positioned to bring their uplifting message of
unity, brotherhood and dance floor revolution to the people of planet
The B-Side Players are part of a new movement in popular music, a
band that honors the international cross-pollination that has always
made music the universal language. They use any beat that catches their
ear, regardless of geography or genre, to create a compelling,
horndriven, polyrhythmic groove. "The root of all pop music is African,"
says Karlos Paez, the band's lead vocalist, trumpet player and founder.
"Our sound acknowledges that fact. That's why the music is so soulful.
We're playing the ancient beats that came from Africa to create reggae,
son, Afro-beat and funk and mixing ‘em all together."
