BIO

B-Side Players are a septet led by frontman Karlos Paez and including guitarist Giovanni Mejia, bass player Gerry Guevara, saxophonist Regan Branch, percussionists Victor Tapia and Luis Cuenca, and drummer Ryan Moran. The son of a musician, Paez spent a good deal of his time growing up on the road and formed the band in 1993 in San Diego. The group built a local following and won several San Diego music awards for their blend of Latin, funk, rock, and reggae, and have toured with artists ranging from Ben Harper to Papa Roach. The group issued Movement in September 2001, which culled material from two self-released records, Renacimeinto and Culture of Resistence. The album included a guest appearance by Herbie Hancock drummer Mike Clark and a cover of the War classic “Spill the Wine.”

The B-Side Players are a 9-piece band part of a new movement in popular music. A band that honors the international cross-pollination that has always made music the universal language. They use any beat that catches their ear, regardless of geography or genre, to create a compelling, horndriven, polyrhythmic groove.  They continue exploring the multifaceted grooves of Latin America and the Caribbean, incorporating the sounds of Cuba, Jamaica, Mexico and Brazil with the funk, rock, jazz and hip-hop rhythms of their homeland, dropping bits of Cumbia, Salsa, gritty street Samba, Son Montuno, Jarocho and Boogaloo into the mix.
