La Orquesta Espada considered by many to be the top Salsa/Jazz band to come out of the New England region. The full orchestra is comprised of 11 members, 4 horns, 3 percussion, bass, drums and vocals. Espada’s sound includes a wide range music, from original Salsa, Jazz and Brazilian rhythms to create a spicy brand of music. Espada has headlined many festivals and have performed with and opened for such greats as Eddie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Claudio Roditi, Roy Ayers, and others. The band was formed in 1982 by Ramon Santiago, William Fluker, Doug Long, and Ivan Santiago. Espada has remained relatively the same throughout the 33 year history. Over the years, band leader Ray Santiago has composed and arranged many compositions and recordings with band members William Fluker, Doug Long, Marco Ocasio, Kris Jensen, and lyricists Luis Roman. Espada’s most recent album On the Cutting Edge won the 2015 New England Salsa Award for best Latin Jazz Band.
