Mucho Mambo

October 27, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 11:59 pm AEDT

Back by popular demand, Sydney based explosive 13 piece Latin big band Mucho Mambo returns for a final performance at Bird’s Basement.
Mucho Mambo’s distinctive sound blends bold, brassy riffs and driving percussion with big band arrangements and classic Latin grooves.
Fusing Mambo, Cha Cha Cha, Salsa, Conga and Bolero with Jazz harmonies and orchestration, Mucho Mambo has been blowing audiences away with tight arrangements and reinventing the styles with a unique funky edge.
Prepare to be transported back to the golden era of Latin and Jazz from 1950s and ’60s Cuba and New York.
