“We look forward to bringing our unique brand of Latin Jazz to the Viper Room. We have a great show and a fantastic band composed of musicians who’ve played with greats like Ray Charles. We just hope to have enough room so people can dance” said Paris Escovedo from his recording studio in Los Angeles.

Paris is the son of Thomas “Coke” Escovedo an original member of Santana. Coke Escovedo’s musical legacy influenced luminaries such as Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock.

The 10 piece band is composed of seasoned professionals from different genres of music. The Project is currently releasing their single “Latin Lady” on Universal Records and a music video of the same title.
