At the forefront of the UK Latin music scene for well over a decade, you could say Havana Beat are pioneers. They've worked with the likes of William Vivanco, Eliades Ochoa from The Buena Vista Social Club and NG La Banda.

Not only do they have a UK presence, they’ve played much further afield in Colombia, Spain and back in their native Cuba.

An absolutely fantastic band, very talented musicians and wonderful singer. All age groups brought together on the dance floor! Ruth, Wedding at Knepp Castle Estate, West Sussex,

Ever popular, Havana Beat have years of experience performing at weddings, events and fiestas in the UK and beyond, and at venues as diverse as Caldecote Hall, Exeter College Oxford, Knepp Castle and the William Morris Gallery.

Whether they're playing for a wedding or corporate event, a public concert or festival, or at a salsa class or a private party, Havana Beat's wealth of experience, charismatic stage performance and exciting repertoire of Son, salsa, Cumbia and Afro-Cuban music never fails to draw audiences to the dancefloor!

“Havana Beat - fantastic. Great band. Everybody has raved about them since. They have such a good sound. It really made the evening reception exciting. They look so cool too and are very charming. Just fantastic!”

John, Wedding, Kingston, July 2019

“Havana Beat performed brilliantly! Our guests loved dancing to their set and me and my husband had a wonderful time!!”

Fleur, Wedding, Oxford, May 2018

“Awesome night - very original sound. Great breaks, tight, hard-hitting rhythm section, excellent vocals and mesmerising cuatro (Puerto Rican guitar). You guys rock!”

Edward , Public Event, Lewes, January 2018

“An absolutely fantastic band, very talented musicians and wonderful singer. Definitely would recommend to anyone for a wedding, all age groups brought together on the dance floor. Function central were also brilliant and very organised to book through!”

Ruth, Wedding at Knepp Castle Estate, West Sussex, July 2017

“Thanks so much for the fantastic performance! You were one of the highlights of the day and we have had so many people ask us how we found you! We wanted a band that would get everyone from the age of 2 to 82 up on the dancefloor. We had a full dancefloor throughout and the band coped very well, despite hyperactive toddlers stealing their maracas! Our venue was in a rural setting which was hard to find and had sound restrictions, however the band were right on time and had no problems working with the venue. We really can't praise these guys enough. Tremendous!”

Eleanor & Gordon, Wedding, Kent, September 2016
