A Humboldt favorite, Latin Peppers are coming to Shelter Cove! Join us for a great night of Latin music and dancing.

Called the "best Latin band north of the Bay Area,” the Latin Peppers always bring irresistible, high energy salsa and Latin dance music with an Afro-Cuban feel. The members have many years performing experience throughout the Northcoast, led by Jimmy Durchslag on trombone, who also does the arrangements. Jimmy has appeared with numerous Latin bands including local favorites Ponche and Kachimbo. He teaches the Latin ensemble at the annual Lark Music Camp in Mendocino. Orlando Morales plays timbales, congas and percussion. He has been a stalwart of the Latin scene in the SF Bay Area for many years. The group also includes Jennifer Dominick on piano, Andy Barnett, leader of the Garberville Town Band, on trumpet, Lee Phillips on bass, and Arnold Morales on congas. The Latin Peppers strongly reflect the dance music of Cuba ranging from John Coltrane to Maraca, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, Buena Vista Social Club and Mongo Santamaria, all with compelling rhythms that showcase tight ensemble playing and soulful improvisation.
