Los GatosSALSA!
Los Gatos Los Gatos listen
Pete Siers, drummer and leader of the renowned Latin jazz combo Los Gatos, is a powerful, intensely physical and dynamic player on timbales, coro and percussion. In addition to Siers, the other four members of the group, Cary Kocher, on vibes and coro; Kurt Krahnke, bass; Brian Di Blassio, piano and coro; and Al Di Blassio, congas, vocals and percussion, are all world class performers. They have each toured extensively and have been performing in Los Gatos for over 10 years. With Siers, this group’s rhythm section is remarkable, but for many listeners, the distinctive feature of Los Gatos is Cary Kocher’s vibraphone sound, which can send a cool flow down your back on a hot summer day. This concert is part of the UMHS Summer Courtyard Concert Series presented by Gifts of Art.
