Son Del Caribe has been the band accompanist of big artists,who have been awarded the prestigious Grammy in Latin Music, Lalo Rodriguez and Andy Montanez. Locally, this talented ensemble has participated in concerts with international musical bands such as Grupo Niche and Puerto Rican Power.
Son Del Caribe is led by the versatile trombonist Jaime Morales, a top salsa musician from Puerto Rico who has played alongside such Latin music legends as Eddie Santiago, Gilberto Santa Rosa, and many others.
Son Del Caribe performs regularly at universities, Latin dance clubs, concerts, community events and music festivals in Cincinnati, Dayton and throughout the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana tri-state area.
