The live salsa bands playing at clubs in Milwaukee are of uniformally excellent quality. There is nothing like the energy of live salsa/merengue music being performed. Live bands perform at El Babalu every Saturday night. The bands are typically large 8 to 12 piece, with a lot of brass and percussion.
-- This Milwaukee band plays a lot of Santana cover tunes (mostly cha-cha's). Their percussion is tight and the singing is great. Can be seen at the Milwaukee Ale House
from time to time. They create a party mood playing lots of fun songs all night. Abraxes plays a diverse style of originals and covers. Abraxes originals includes styles such as-Songo, Son-Montuno, Samba, Cha-Cha and Cumbia. With two decades of experience and music covering Santana to Tito Puente. Abraxes usually keeps the dance floor packed all night.
