“Opening recently for ‘Los Lobos’ at Stern Grove in San Francisco, he and his superb band… swung the crowd like crazy with a Latin fusion sound that’s irresistibly danceable.”

Passionate. Sophisticated. Powerful. Latin jazz, flamenco-samba, Afro Cuban grooves and more. Acclaimed guitarist, vocalist, composer and recording artist Rolando Morales leads his stellar band which features musicians who played with Sheila E., Airto, Dizzy Gillespie, Tower of Power, Spearhead, Rubén Blades and Carlos Santana. This band is guaranteed to make your event memorable and exciting.

Rolando, living in the San Francisco Bay Area, has performed throughout Spain, England, Italy, Ireland, Mexico and Hawaii. His diverse talents span the musical spectrum. On a given night, you might hear him performing classical or flamenco-inspired instrumentals, to hard-swinging Latin-jazz; from original sambas to passionately sung boleros; from driving Cuban grooves to Latin rhythms with a rock or funk edge.

He was equally comfortable performing with his full band before thousands at KKSF concerts, with his Quintet before 12,000 enthusiastic fans at the Stern Grove Festival in San Francisco, the Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz in Connecticut, and as a soloist for shows as small and intimate as a party of three, of whom one was special guest Demi Moore.

He and his personnel are world-class pros. He uses top-of-the-line equipment to bring out the best possible sound from his musicians. As for versatility, he can help you decide what works best for your event, from solo to the full band. He is available for parties, festivals, conventions, concerts and recording dates. When you want the best, ask for Rolando. 

“Fueled by the influence of flamenco modernists such as Paco de Lucia and Chick Corea, Morales is a rapid-fire instrumentalist who is at the peak of his technique and has something to say melodically.”
