More about John Roberts y Pan Blanco
In John Roberts’s own words:
The band, John Roberts y Pan Blanco, is inspired by my international musical experiences on 6 continents, most recently recording in Santiago de Cuba and Buenos Aires! We are a high energy, dance-focused Latin Jazz, Salsa and Afro-Funk ensemble that is interactive and family friendly, performing at many summer festivals, performing arts centers, brew festivals, dance clubs, and even intimate jazz settings. I compose and sing music in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
The band consists of instrumental soloists (Sax, Violin, Trombone) and a contemporary Cuban rhythm section that includes the sound of African guitar and American funk. I have a deep love for these styles and have performed extensively, nationally and internationally, with multiple Cuban, African, Jazz, Argentine and R&B ensembles (Chris Botti, Bobby Womack, Ricardo Lemvo, Celia Cruz, Chaka Khan, Sting, Mariah Carey, Fallout Boy, The Temptations, New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, Christina Aquilera, Los Pinguos to name a few).
