PALO! was nominated for a 2015 Grammy and a 2014 Latin Grammy for their album “PALO! Live”. They perform their own brand of music they call “Afro-Cuban Funk”. Just think “funky, jazzed-up salsa”, or better yet, listen to some of their music. The group’s unique, danceable sound blends the allure of Cuban music with funky beats and jazzy improvisation.
PALO! began in 2003 when Steve Roitstein invited his fellow musicians to join him in an improvised musical experiment combining Cuban music with funk beats. The band immediately became a featured act in Miami’s premiere live music venues, concerts, festivals and events. The winner of Miami New Times’ BEST LATIN BAND 2014, PALO! has performed for packed houses in Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, and New York. The New York Post proclaims “Afro-Cuban Funk is Cuban music for the new generation. And the leader of the sound is the Miami based band PALO!”
