Fiestecita back in business!

Fiestecita is a salsa group we started already in 1983 (!). The line-up has changed a little bit from those days, but in today’s line-up we’ve been performing (with one exception, Matti Lappalainen on trombone (nowadays the Manager of April Jazz)- switched to Mikko Mustonen) since the 90′s.
We used to run several highly successful salsa clubs in Helsinki, back in the 80′s and 90′s. The biggest hit was the every-Sunday-salsa club at Hotel President’s Night Club, that ran continuously for 3 years, with the average attendance of 750-800 persons/night (!). Sometimes there was around 1100 people packed in, most of them dancing (have no idea how they managed to do that…)!
The band is very dear to all of us, even though the last years it has been pretty quiet – but now we’re back – and going to work hard to make the band sound amazing on this festival!
