Brothers Pablo and Ricardo Ojeda have been writing and playing music together for as long as they can remember. Their musical writing style has taken many forms during the evolution of their sound. From the national touring dance floor packing beats of Rubberneck, to the hypnotic passionate rhythms of Toque Libre. The Ojeda brothers have continually produced eclectic musical incarnations that meld rhythm and melody together in their own unique way. Their latest musical offering is called “Sabroso”, meaning flavorful in Spanish. Sabroso starts where Toque Libre left off…the next chapter.
Sabroso features some of Portland’s most well known and talented musicians. The band’s rhythmic foundation is brought to you by Pablo Ojeda on bass/vocals (Rubberneck, Toque Libre, Geoff Byrd) and Ward “The Warden” Griffiths (Fred Strickley, King Beta, The Quadraphones, The Gravy) on percussion. On trumpet the incredible talents of Paul Mazzio (Gino Vannelli, Tom Grant, Nu Shooz) are showcased. Adding to the depth of talent is the hook laden piano styling of Dave Fleschner (Curtis Salgado, Earl Thomas, John Nemeth, Mel Brown, B.B. King) on piano. Last but not least, is Ricardo Ojeda on guitar/vocals.
Sabroso is guaranteed to please Portland’s most discerning music lovers.
Tickets available online until 4 pm day of the show.
