Rice & Beans Bio:
There is no argument that a true Latin sound must include a fusion of vast influences as is true with the DJ quartet known as the Rice & Beans Sound System. Their love and passion for their Latin culture is evident as they connect with their audience one groove after another.
Their mission is simple: to keep the afro-Caribbean traditions and sounds alive for generations to come.
With a presence on dance floors from New York to Miami to Orlando and DC, the Rice & Beans Sound System’s style and selections have been appreciated all over.
While forming in 2007, founding member Christian Martir united with Dean (Deejay Rod-Uno) Rodriguez through their affiliations with cultural groups, to continue focusing on a musical Latin presence they both believed in. Since 2009, the team has served as ambassadors for the Fania/Codigo music group by hosting events highlighting the timeless sound known as FANIA! The two newest additions, BK Dusty Fingers & Jon Santino round out and complete a rotation that has been solidified through recent events that include: “The Cool Out” and “A Tribute to FANIA con los Whiskey Barons” hosted by The Lazy Afternoon. While meeting old age fans they also welcome new faces with an eagerness to share their understanding and enthusiasm for Latin music. Successes continue to come to light as demographics for their events can span from a married couple in their 50’s to an 18 year old listening to an Eddie Palmieri tune for the first time.
Most recently, they shared the spotlight at the famed Apt.78 in Manhattan with former members of Hector Lavoe’s band for a tribute to the legend known as “La Voz”. While growing in major markets like Miami
and New York, the foursome plans on continuing their
accomplishments by joining forces with Fania more frequently serving as liaisons to the public with a vast discography they are both excited to share. So as a recommendation to anyone attending one of their events, move…Grab that rhythm and a dance partner and make sure to listen and feel every brass stab.
Be sure to also keep an eye out, as the Rice & Beans Sound System is coming to a dance floor near you.
