Susie Hansen Latin Band
The Susie Hansen Latin Band is a popular Los Angeles-based band playing high-energy Afro-Cuban Latin Jazz and Salsa. Susie Hansen plays the electric violin and is the musical director. Susie's CD, The Salsa Never Ends, has been getting extensive airplay across the United States and in Europe, South America and Asia, and two singles from the CD charted well with club and radio DJs for over a year. Our band has received many wonderful reviews, including one by Phil Elwood of the San Francisco Examiner, who describes the band this way: “It's a sizzling, swinging Salsa band. Hansen can solo as if her bow was afire." While specializing in Latin jazz and Salsa, the band plays dance music of all types, including Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Bolero, Mambo, Rumba, Cha Cha Cha, Charanga, Samba, Bossa Nova and Latin Jazz. You will not find a better band for authentic Latin music. For an occasion that calls for pop, rock and swing, we have a large repertoire of Disco, Swing, Classic Rock, R&B, Motown, Jazz Standards, Jump Swing and Big Band. Susie and her band will get the audience up and moving--we aim for the feet! The band is truly a crowd pleaser with its rhythmic energy and drive.
