About the performers:
Avenida B: Self described as a â€œclassic salsa dura band,â€ Avenida B is committed to providing music for the dance community. Reared in New York Cityâ€™s Lower East Side neighborhood, the group has revived an old-school sound that makes you want to get up and groove. Avenida Bâ€™s unique repertoire and attention to song speed, duration and structure connects dancers and musicians in a meaningful way.
Fabio Legarda: There are three characteristics that make Georgia Music Award winner Fabio Legarda unique: his silky vocals, suave style and electric performances. Just ask the 45,000 music enthusiasts he performed for at Atlantaâ€™s Plaza Fiesta. His sound, described as genre bending but steeped in Latin pop, is a relatively new style to the music industry. However, itâ€™s wholly his and quickly expanding his diverse fan base.
Eli Jas: Touted as a â€œnoteworthy act making her way toward Billboard chart successâ€ by Billboard.com, Eli Jas is taking the Latin music scene by storm.Â Her single â€œTÃº Me Haces Volarâ€ was featured on MTV Tr3sâ€™ â€œDescubre y Downloadâ€ and became the most downloaded song of the platform. The songâ€™s trajectory continued as the theme song on MTV Tr3sâ€™ â€œQuiero Mi Baby.â€ Jas also recently starred in Telemundoâ€™s reality show, â€œBuscando Mi Ritmoâ€ where she was a fan favorite.
Jeyro : Dominican Republic-born, New York City-bred singer-songwriter Jeyro is quickly establishing himself in the Latin music community with his particular style of bachata. An accomplished pianist, Jeyro reached the top 20 of the Billboard charts with his first album Mi Mundo, which spawned the hit singles â€œSay You Say Meâ€ and â€œMe Vuelvo Loco.â€ With his new single “Solo Tu,â€ and appearances on â€œDespierta Americaâ€ and at the Calle Ocho Festival in Miami, Jeyroâ€™s profile continues to expand while earning him new fans stateside and beyond.
