The B-Side Players are a 9-piece band part of a new movement in popular music. A band that honors the international cross-pollination that has always made music the universal language. They use any beat that catches their ear, regardless of geography or genre, to create a compelling, horn driven polyrhythmic groove.

They continue exploring the multifaceted grooves of Latin America and the Caribbean, incorporating the sounds of Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico and Brazil with the funk, rock, jazz and hip-hop rhythms of their homeland, dropping bits of Cumbia, Salsa, gritty street Samba, Son Montuno, Jarocho and Boogaloo into the mix.

The B-Side Players have been laying down their own inimitable Latin global funk since they came together in 1994. Their incendiary live shows have defined them as local favorites with 10 San Diego Music awards.

Meanwhile their albums showcase a band with restless musical intelligence, effortlessly blending genres to fashion their own forward looking, Latin flavored soul music. As an eight piece band the players are known for igniting crowds with their fierce rhythms and uplifting message of unity and consciousness. Meanwhile always keeping their focus on the political climate of the world and nation.

The B-Side Players are a living and breathing cultural art experience for the mind body and soul.
