Jarabe de Palo Live
B.B. King Blues Club and Grill
May 3rd at 11.00pm (Doors open at 10.30)
Formed in Barcelona in the mid-'90s, Latin rock outfit Jarabe de Palo was the brainchild of guitarist and frontman Pau Dones, along with drummer Alex Tenas, bassist Joan Gene, and drummer Dani Forcada. The band made its first big splash with its 1996 album La Flaca, the title track from which became the song of the summer in Spain in 1997. Determined not to be a one-hit wonder, Dones led his band through a series of successful releases over the next decade, including Depende (1998), De Vuelta y Vuelta (2001), Grandes Exitos (2003), Un Metro Cuadrado 1m2 (2004), and Adelantando (2007).
In 2008, Jarabe de Palo announced it was departing from its longtime record label, EMI Music Spain, and going independent. The band compressed the letters in its name and founded its own imprint, releasing a new album, Orquestra Reciclando, the following year. Featuring new versions of the band's own hits, the disc also featured a new song. Y Ahora Que Hacemos?, the band's latest album, came out last year.
Jarabe de Palo has won a host of prestigious music awards and has garnered Grammy nominations. The group's long list of prominent collaborations includes work with Jovanotti, Niccolo Fabi, La Vieja Trova Santiaguera, Antonia Vega, Celia Cruz, and Vico C. Dones has even composed tracks for Ricky Martin. This band can pack stadiums in Spain, and you better believe they'll be packing B.B. King Blues Club too. Don't miss it.
