Zongo! (From Glen Starkey, New Times:10/25/07)
Ex-Rock Steady Posse and Mozaic trumpeter Paul Irving is back in action with the Zongo! All-Stars.
"I've got a new band put together and we're playing our first show, headlining the Oktoberfest event in Baywood Park, on Sunday, Oct. 28 (3 p.m. at Bay Back Inn & Gardens)," he said. "We've also got a booking at Sweet Springs for Saturday, Nov. 10."
The band is so new I haven't heard it yet, but Irving describes the music as "kind of a mixture of Cuban/Latin styles with our own twist, and all the vocals are in Spanish. We're calling it CaliCubano, and you won't want to miss a beat."
In addition to Irving, the group also includes Andrew Wise, Dylan Johnson, Jacob Odell, Sean Sullivan, Justin Perkins, and John Lee.
