      Live Music, Food, & Dancing - ORQUESTA BORINQUEN

      A night of fun and adventuring featuring cultural food, cocktails, salsa lesson and plenty of room for dancing featuring live music from Orquesta Borinquen.  Orquesta Borinquen features some of the youngest and most talented musicians in the “Bay Area” salsa scene today. Lead and directed by Bill Ortega Jr., Borinquen always puts on an electrifying show and then some.

      Lead trumpet player Bill Ortega Jr. (Director/Trumpet/Corista/Percussionist), is one of the most talented silent destructors in the salsa scene today. His power and pure determination to sound great every time sets the pace for the band and is the root from where the term “Powerhouse” derives from.

      Orquesta Borinquen is one of the few bands who can range from salsa dura to salsa romantica in an authentic fashion, and lead singer Carlos Xavier, is a main contributor to that. Carlos has been singing with Borinquen for over 12 years and is a sought after vocalist in the bay area. There are not many salsa bands with one front man who can cover a whole nights worth of singing but Carlos does it, and makes it seamless. His ability to authenticate styles comes from his upbringing in all different genres of music, and he is able carefully incorporate the necessary style to each song.
