When 2020 arrived and while most were celebrating a new year, a new decade I couldn’t help but to pause  and take a small moment and realize I have been working alongside my hottest client that not only performs the hottest shows around USA but has maintained to remain consistent every weekend at the same venue for almost 20 years! I am so happy and blessed to represent Havana NRG! handling digital brand management, social media, bookings and many tours around country throughout.

Havana NRG! has that midas touch, that special formula that goes way beyond their talent, it’s their path, their fans, audiences worldwide that have purchased and stream their original music and other remakes they have produced. It’s how they relate to their fans both in person and online as we work progressively to provide the fastest response rate addressing concerns, thanking them for their compliments and handling incoming requests for festivals, private events and so much more.

Havana NRG! are always in touch with their target audience and their packed weekly shows at Gloria’s in Addison reflect just that. From Millennials to Gen X’ers, Havana NRG! delivers! To those that remember their very early days where a night included pure Salsa and Merengue only have seen the massive change and progression of Havana NRG! which now has transformed to remakes of Jennifer Lopez, Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, Becky G, Pitbull and so much more in hot, upbeat remixed fashion along with the hottest Timba Cubana, Cubaton, Reggaeton and Salsa of today and moving forward.

Welcome to the new Havana NRG! or let’s say, the evolved relevant band that has become a much in demand headliner for concerts. I had to educate a booking agent recently who stated to me “We want to book Havana NRG as we already have a “Party Band” to close out the show for the festival” and my reply was, have you seen this band in the past 5 years? She said yes, then I said simply OK. Once she experiences their hot, powerful party band showcase the “closing band” will drop their jaw as will the agent. This is not the “Salsa Only” band you once knew. We are booking for 2020 and already 2021, call me at 469-490-9993 or rikki_rincon@yahoo.com. You may visit www.bookhavananrg.com to see more fun!

Los Van Van brought the house down in Dallas!

Saturday, June 18th was a date on our calendar that my wife and I anticipated for many weeks since the surreal news arrived that the world renowned Los Van Van from Havana, Cuba would actually perform in Dallas, Texas for the first time.  To most fans of this amazing orchestra this concert was more than a concert, for Cubans in general, this was finally a night of returning home to Cuba as the Bomb Factory hosted more Cubans and other nationalities in one room that proved that Dallas truly is a multinational marketplace. Cuba! Puerto Rico! Colombia! Mexico! Peru! Argentina! Bolivia! Brazil! Spain! Central American! Chile! Dominican Republic! and so many more represented this night.

This concert was my first experience with my favorite, all time group and experiencing this with my wife Giselly was a moment I will never forget as it took us back, if only for one night, to Havana, Cuba where we first met. I will carry my most special moments walking the streets in Havana holding hands and getting to know who has now become my wife for almost 10 years. This concert was more than a concert, it was the lifting of spirits for most in attendance as Los Van Van wonderful mix of Songo, Timba, Son, Guaguancó  and Salsa Cubana took everyone to places that a typical “Salsa” orchestra just cannot duplicate. This is the very core of the music and the only thing that would’ve made this evening 100% perfect is if we could have recorded it, but that also speaks it’s own story that each of us must have to tell our own story.

Los Van Van will return to Houston, Texas on Tuesday, June 21st to perform at Scouts Bar and it is very tempting to hit the road and experience them one more time! Click here to see their entire tour calendar!
