2017 LOS VAN VAN U.S.A. TOUR

El tren de Cuba regresa a los EE.UU para una gira nacional

Cuba's premier dance band returns to the US with a full lineup featuring three of founder Juan Formell's children: drummer / timbalero Samuel Formell, bassist Juan-Carlos Formell and the newest addition, the family's youngest daughter, lead vocalist Vanessa Formell. We anticipate that her voice, beauty and her energetic style will increase the adrenaline in all shows.

Formell y Los Van Van - 2017 U.S.A. Tour - Direct from Cuba with visas secured - For bookings contact Searock Music at 917.617.5708 & 917.687.2486

After the passing of Juan Formell, the legacy remained in the hands of his son, Samuel Formell. Samuel has been following the footsteps of his father as musical director of the band. On this tour he brings LVV's most recent musical production entitled "Los Van Van son la patria" from Cuba’s Egrem label, a collection of danceable tracks incorporating innovative, contemporary arrangements of Juan Formell’s hits and new compositions from different members of the band.

The orchestra will be in the US in August 15th , 2017 through August 30th, 2017

For presenters interested in including the legendary Pedrito Calvo as guest singer in any show, please contact www.Searockmusic.com (info below) to discuss this in advance. Pedro Calvo is the most recognized singer of Los Van Van in its first 40 years and and one of the most famous interpreters of contemporary Afro-Cuba music.

Rivera y Primera at Roccapulco

Tour Continues Tonight in SF

Las Vegas-Saturday - LA- Sunday

Rivera y Primera really did turn out to be la combinación perfecta. Transcending the usual Van Van tribute approach, Mayito and Alexander sang together with obvious preparation on an HdP song, El palo más duro, and Mayito's first  big hit, La sorpresa (Voy a publicar tu foto). Mayito sang Soy todo alone but the band, with Guillermo del Toro switching to drumset, made some very cool changes to the arrangement. The show went two hours and included several new HdP songs as well as a couple of their trademark hits. If you're in SF, LV, LA or Miami, this historic pairing is not to be missed.

Roccapulco's slick new digital backdrop was a big improvement

Avis Tobías was playing with a new ferocity
