LOS SUGAR KINGS is a Boston-based quartet known for their dynamic live performances, rich harmonies, high level of musicianship and ability to transcend genres with an authenticity rarely heard. In their world, respect is paid to the forefathers and traditions of Afro-Cuban Son, Salsa and Rumba-Flamenca but Los Sugar Kings also actively draw on influences from nearly every continent in their unique repertoire. All are highly accomplished on their instruments, however the true magic of Los Sugar Kings is how these four individuals come together to put on a performance worthy of any festival, party, club or concert hall.
Every show is an intimate dialogue between the band and their audience, with both sides communicating in a manner that is spontaneous, passionate, thoughtful and joyous.
“Totally bilingual, comfortably bicultural, compulsively danceable... Once you get on the dance floor you can’t get down again. From mambo to reggae, salsa to merengue to rock... each player is facile and moves comfortably among the genres.” —Salem Gazette
