Ocho de Bastos (translation: Eight of Clubs) is one of the most popular and sought-after Latin Pop Rock bands in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area. Founded by a group of enthusiastic young musicians, Ocho de Bastos’ sound is an energetic fusion of tropical rhythms with Latin rock. A unique guitar sound, blended with powerful drums, Latin percussion, and catchy brass riffs complement Ocho de Bastos’ unique style. Ocho de Bastos was described by National Public Radio’s Felix Contreras as “…A DAMN GOOD BAND.”
Ocho de Bastos decided to fuse strong percussion and Caribbean rhythms with more traditional Latin rock sounds resulting in nine songs that identify Ocho de Bastos style as what band members call “a fusion of tropical rhythms like merengue, salsa, reggae, and reggaeton with a powerful electric guitar”.
The band has successfully performed in major festivals (more than 80,000 in attendance) and other performances (e.g., at the Washington Nationals Stadium) that support diversity and various charities. Broad audiences (including people from different ethnicities, backgrounds, and ages) enjoy and dance to the contagious rhythms of Ocho de Bastos. Our repertoire includes Top 40, Pop, Rock & Roll, Alternative, Latin Pop, Caribbean Fusion, Reggae, Ska, and International genres. Our show is modified for every audience and venue, with acoustic or full percussion sets.
After years of performing in front of international crowds, Ocho de Bastos expresses new musical influences in their albums which include exotic rhythms from Spain, Africa, South America and the Caribbean. A well-balanced blend of exotic and modern bounces make Ocho de Bastos original music a truly enjoyable and fun musical production.
Ocho de Bastos is available for private, corporate, charitable, and public events. The band loves community festivals, as well as events hosted for good causes. It is our goal to bring people together with music and to create memorable experiences with our show. We embrace an atmosphere of respect, good vibes, and inclusion for all.
