Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.
Cuba. Puerto Rico. Nicaragua. Venezuela. Mexico. Peru. Panama. Guatemala. Honduras. Colombia. Chile. And, of course, the United States. These are among the rainbow of nationalities that harmoniously blend together into the mighty ocean of talent that is ORQUESTA MAR DE ASHE’, performing songs of Love, Passion, and Unity. For us, Love is Love. Gay, straight, whatever. And Love should be celebrated! We have been gay-friendly since the 90’s. Check out a picture to the left of us at “The Dinah” in Palm Springs.
MAR DE ASHE’ is an electrifying 10 piece orchestra that specializes in Latin/Afro-Caribbean dance music–SALSA, Bachata, Merengue, Cumbia, Latin Jazz, Cha-Cha, Son, and Bolero. We sport a smokin’ horn section, and a great traditional Latin rhythm section.
But what really makes us different from all the rest?
We call it “VOCES EN ARMONIA”–voices in harmony. La Sirena and Oscar Daniel create a completely unique vocal blend, with amazing harmonies, and sizzling duets. With its unique vocal sound, big brass, and pulsating Latin percussion, Mar de Ashe’ plays both covers and originals, giving you something at once traditional, and yet completely fresh and new.
Add to that our bilingual approach, bantering with the audience and each other in Spanish and English; and top it off with our extraordinarily large repertoire, which makes it possible to fill a night with nothing but pura Salsa (including ‘Salsa Romantica’, that’s perfect for weddings); or an evening of Cuban music or Latin Jazz; or Merengues, Bachatas, and Cumbias for a Central American event; or even a large selection of Salsa in English, to appeal to the full-spectrum audience – we can please any crowd, no matter how diverse!
La Sirena will work with you to create a detailed itinerary for your special day. You can even choose the songs you want to hear from our extensive list!
We can MC in both English and/or Spanish.
So that the music never stops, we can play CD’s between sets, or work with your DJ.
We can also play soft music for your ceremony, dinner, or cocktail hour.
And ***NEW*** In these trying times, Mar de Ashe’ offers an alternative for those who would still like world-class entertainment without the world-class price tag. For those with either a restricted budget or restricted space, we offer a trimmed down 7-8 piece band that still sounds dynamite, while making it easier on your pocketbook. Ask for a quote!
Remember, we want to make you happy!
We have performed for many, many parks, festivals, city concerts, corporate events, fund-raisers, educational institutions, clubs, and of course – WEDDINGS!
Our talented members have played all over the globe for such diverse artists as Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind & Fire, Linda Ronstadt, Diana Ross, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Luis Miguel, Eddie Santiago, Luis Enrique, Poncho Sanchez, Bobby Caldwell, Luther Vandross, Aretha Franklin, and James Brown, to name a few.
