Price From

Plaza Pequeña is the smaller sister act and “instant coffee” alternative to the filtered coffee beans of its big brother Desplazamiento, each of the musicians taking the lead with their respective elements – the rhythms of the percussion, the harmonies of the piano, the melodies of the trumpet and the lyrics of the vocals – creating an explosive spark of musical interplay, with an emphasis on live dynamic interaction. Providing a quick and easy salsa solution, the band have been a favourite with house parties, product launches and promotional and media work as well as weddings and intimate occasions around the UK. The band has performed throughout the UK – London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Plymouth, Reading, Oxford and the home counties – working with distinguished clients such as Havana Club and notable bar & pub chains.

Plaza Pequeña is based in London, but performs regularly around the UK, and even offers discounts with Manchester and Bristol-based line-ups for discounted engagements in North England and Scotland, and South West England and Wales.
