The Rumba Kings

It’s only been 8 months since the Rumba Kings’ first Studio Session on KNKX, but we couldn’t resist their excitement over releasing their first recording, a double-disc CD:  The Instrumental and Vocal Sessions, Volume One. 

Once again, their energy and virtuosity delighted our listeners.  The Rumba Kings bold and romantic blend of Latin, Mediterranean and Gypsy music is irresistible!

The Band:

Johnny Bacolas, bass; George Stevens, guitar; Teddy Adams, guitar; Andrey Zasypkin, drums; Tor Dietrichson, percussion
