Led by John ‘Dandy’ Rodriguez, directed by Jose Madera with Mitch Frohman each of which spent over 25 years working beside Tito Puente. The focus of the band driven by the dedication to keeping the sound of the 40’s and 50’s Palladium era music thriving and moving forward. The orchestra has successfully kept the sound of the Big 3 (Machito, Tito Rodriguez and Tito Puente) alive and well, while allowing for its progression by working with new musical concepts.
Formerly the Tito Puente Orchestra, this incredible ensemble under their new name Latin Giants Orchestra, is comprised of musicians of overwhelming experience and talent whose music is dynamic and groundbreaking. Transcending all boundaries, the passion of this ensemble’s big band sound and hot Latin rhythms beckons all to the dance floor.
