FEATURED BAND FOR THIS EVENING IS "SALSA CON SOUL"
New concept created in 2011 by Chicago's renown percussionist Joe Rendon and Chicago's legendary singer Devin Thompson.
Jose brings over 16 years of Latin percussion experience to the band. He appeared with legendary and luminary Tito Puente and Armando Peraza. His musical background is so extensive, he can play anything from jazz to thrash, Latin to funk and back to the blues.
Salsa meets Soul!
Devin Thompson was born in Joliet, Illinois. Growing up in a family steeped in gospel, rhythm and blues and jazz, Devin took to music at an early age. Devin sang his first solo in church at the age of five. At 12 years of age, he joined his older brother’s band, Mezzo Forte, honing his skills of singing and playing the trumpet. Devin went on to do backup work for R. Kelly, Steve Cole, Chante Savage and Martha Walsh of the Weather Girls fame. To date, Devin has recorded numerous jingles, a CD entitled, Club Zero, and was featured on the soundtrack for the Disney movie, Holes.
