More great music, good vibes, and summer breezes… The BID Music on the Green series, in the heart of downtown New Rochelle, series continues with one of the region’s hottest bands – Los Hacheros.
Since 2011, Los Hacheros have been setting dance floors aflame with a gritty soulfulness that echoes legends such as Ray Barretto, Fania, and Arsenio Rodriguez, but with an immediacy that is unmistakably New York, now. Although Los Hacheros is a band of only 5 musicians, the group manages to sound like a conjunto of 12. Eddie Venegas (Marc Anthony, Orquestra Broadway) plays trombone, violin and sings chorus, Itai Kriss (Edmar Castaneda, Grupo Latin Vibe) sings, plays flute, campana, and guiro, while Jimenez is in charge of lead vocals and congas. William Ash (Alfredo de la Fe, Brenda K Starr) holds down the tumbaos on baby bass while Plasse plays the tres, a guitar-like instrument originating from the Oriente Province in Cuba. Utilizing this unique instrumentation, Los Hacheros draws on charanga and salsa to create a sound distinctly their own.
In the event of rain, the concert moves indoors to the Ossie Davis Theater of the New Rochelle Public Library, on a first-come, first-served basis to the capacity of the 138-seat theater, beginning at 6:45 pm. Call 9914) 632-8254 for weather updates, after 4 pm the day of the concert.
