Called “…the new Latin sound of Miami.” PALO! has quickly become a favorite among South Florida’s live music devotees. PALO! plays a style of extremely danceable music they call “Afro-Cuban Funk”. Their appeal lies in their unmatched musical energy, catchy original songs, and amazing display of impromptu virtuosity. A mix of vintage and contemporary sounds, blending Latin and Urban rhythms gives PALO! their unique, infectious style.


PALO! was formed in 2003 when Steve Roitstein invited fellow musicians Leslie Cartaya (vocals), Philbert Armenteros (vocals, percussion), Ed Calle (sax) and Raymer Olalde (vocals, percussion) to join him in an improvised musical experiment combining Cuban music with funk beats. PALO! immediately began a residency at Hoy Como Ayer, one of the area’s best live music clubs. They soon started performing in Transit Lounge, Jazid, and other area venues. PALO! has been featured at events such as Carnaval on the Mile, Art in the Park, the Amigos For Kids Charity, Miami Book Fair International, and events for the City of Miami. The band has current residencies at D. Rodriguez Cuba in South Beach and Kimbaracumbara in Little Havana.
