Edwin Ortiz Y La Mafia Del Guaguanco at Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club
Edwin Ortiz y La Mafia Del Guaguanco
A ten piece Salsa Orchestra with a 32 year history in the Washington, D.C. metro area. Formerly known as Orquesta La Romana, on its 30th anniversary, band leader Edwin Ortiz officially changed the name to Edwin Ortiz y La Mafia Del Guaguanco. Known for its hard hitting classic salsa sound, La Mafia Del Guaguanco is often compared to the very best orchestras in New York City and Puerto Rico. Staying true to the root of salsa the band has done shows in every major venue in the DC Metro area and has been instrumental in representing latin music at many major festivals in the area. As Orquesta La Romana, the band performed at the very first Taste of DC Festival. The band was also the first local salsa band to perform at the Kennedy Center and at the Strathmore in Rockville, Maryland.
