Miami’s favorite Latin-Rock-cumbia mash-up band, Grammy-nominated Locos por Juana , will appear at The Green Parrot on Friday, Sept. 23, and Saturday, Sept. 24, at 10 p.m.
Nominated in 2009 in the Grammy category of Best Latin Rock or Alternative album for their album La Verdad,Locos por Juana has finally gotten their due from the awards gods.
Locos por Juana,which roughly translates to ”Crazy About Jane”, delight in genre-crossing. With members hailing from Colombia, Venezuela, and Puerto Rico, the band mixes Ska, Rock, Salsa, Jamaican Dancehall, Cumbia, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Funk and Electronica – sometimes in one song.
What makes their sound work is their wild energy; they hurl themselves into their music with such passion and excitement that they pull you along with them. Billboard Magazine tagged their album one of this year’s Hot Picks.
With strong ties to Suenalo and the Spam Allstars, two other Miami groups well known to Parrot patrons for past steamy performances, Locos por Juana is something only Miami could cook up, creating a sound that reflects the diverse mixture of cultures and genres that Miami has to offer. The result is a highly
charged mix of rhythms irresistible to dancers.
