Gregorio Uribe Big Band, is a 16-piece musical project that blends Latin rhythms with funk groove and jazz. This Big Band project brings together musicians from 6 countries around the world that under Gregorio Uribe’s leadership and vision create a masterpiece of Latin rhythms. With a remarkable compliance of trumpets, trombones and saxes soaring over an amazing percussion section and the leader of the group dancing to the beat while playing the accordion, this band brings new and modern arrangements to Latin music that could be compared to Second-Line Bands from New Orleans.
The band conquered Boston and the hearts of Americans and Latinos becoming a must in festivals and venues such as the well-known Regattabar, the Tito Puente Latin Series and Worcester Latin Festival to name a few around Massachusetts and New England. Uribe brought to life his vision to create a band that blended different genres such as funk and jazz with the intriguing folkloric rhythms of his native Colombia.
This energetic and intelligent approach to the music of his country has led him to share the stage with such renowned artists as the six-time Grammy-winner Rubén Blades and Latin Grammy Award-winners Aterciopelados. Uribe was born in Bogotá, Colombia, and started his musical life playing drums and guitar in traditional Colombian music and rock bands. Today, his music reflects the energy of his teenage years, the love for his country and a unique passion for life. Bringing to life a danceable beat with a touch of romanticism into each one of his songs; songs that inspire love and plenty of sabrosura. Uribe has found his own way into the hearts of those who experience his shows by always giving the audiences an honest face and by sharing his passion for what he does best, play his music. Gregorio will be playing solo at Lucid.
