ONDA (Spanish for "vibe") is a seven-piece Latin dance band that quickly made a name for itself as one of the best dance bands on the Boulder scene.Founded in 2000, this top performance group has flourished on the Colorado music scene with a healthy mix of club,festival,theater and private event appearances.ONDA has been featured in The Denver Post, Boulder Daily Camera,Colorado Music Buzz magazine and the Boulder Weekly and enjoys a growing following and festival presence.ONDA has headlined Boulder Creek Festival,Taste of Colorado,Grand Junction Jazz,Hudson Gardens,"Bands on the Bricks",West End Street Jam,Winefest and electrified the Crestone Music Festival,Nedfest,Boulder Int'l Film Fest and the Hot Sounds concert series.The Fox,Boulder and Bluebird Theaters have all hosted ONDA.Frontman Roberto Sequeira heads a crew whose members are veterans of the jazz,afro-cuban,Latin music scene in the Boulder/Denver area.
ONDA's sound is a wonderful mix of originals,traditional Latin standards and afro-cuban rhythms blended with funk,salsa,R+B,cumbia,boogaloo,reggae,boleros and modern jam arrangements.The set is diverse and eclectic,interesting and easy on the ear and the feet! ONDA's reputation as a top shelf dance band and performance experience is well founded.An explosive horn section,tight rhythm section,seductive vocals and percussion all contribute to the irresistable ONDA groove(see Press Kit).
