TAINO began as a project to deliver salsa and latin jazz in August of 2010. The concept is very simple, a seven piece band with the sound and elegant sophistication of a big orchestra. Inspired by bands and individuals such as Ray Barretto, Tito Rodriguez, Tito Puente, Machito, Willie Rosario, Bobby Valentin, Manny Oquendo y Libre, Eddie Palmieri and many others, TAINO has developed into one of the most solid, hard-hitting Salsa bands in the area. The band is led by Percussionist and Lead Vocalist, Aaron Routtenberg. Although being only 25 years old, Aaron has toured and performed with some of the biggest names in Salsa including Jerry Rivera, Tito Nieves, Tito Rojas, Tony Vega, Spanish Harlem Orchestra and more. On the other side of the percussion section sits Miguel Melgoza, one of the most talented percussionists in the area. On bass and vocals, TAINO is proud to present veteran band leader and musician, Gilbert Roman while the extremely talented Peter Meredith occupies the piano chair. The sizzling horn section is proud to have Jamie Dubberly and Abel Figueroa on trombone, while Joseph Camacho dazzles audiences with his baritone sax and vocals. With this strong vocal section, swinging rhythm section, and blazing horn section that will make you move, we invite you to experience a musical pleasure that you won't soon forget. Prepare yourselves for TAINO!
