KABASA! reviews

Here's just a few examples of the fantastic feedback we regularly receive.



"My heartfelt thanks for Kabasa's contribution to the Mock Mayor's Ball which was a sell out, and hugely successful to boot! I'm extremely grateful that you were part of what proved to be a real community effort. The vibe of your performance was fantastic (tonnes of energy) and I had some wonderful feedback from the audience about how much they enjoyed your playing!"

Fi Read (Golowan Mock Mayor of Penzance).


"Fiesta Latina was a fantastic success and the band made all the difference. The dance floor was packed and everyone had a great time from the experienced salsa dancers to the people who just like a good bop. Thanks so much to Kabasa! for helping to make our event the talk of the town."

Caroline Schanche, organiser of 'Fiesta Latina' charity fund raiser in aid of Clic Sargent and Children's Hospice SW.


"How can Kabasa fail to deliver with their infectious Latin rhythms.... not only do they look good, they can all really play and Groove Lounge at the Arts Club is a perfect match. It's always a real pleasure every time we meet and If it wasn't for pure exhaustion I would promote them more often."

Richard Ballinger - Groove Lounge


"Their music is the best mixture of warm live sounds with a very professional presentation. Kabasa! plays like an outfit which has been together for years and I can't imagine an audience who wouldn't enjoy one of their gigs... a really authentic latin sound."

Mike Sagar-Fenton, Head of live music for the Golowan Festival.


"Kabasa! brought sunshine to the main marquee on a rainy night. You were fantastic and it was great to see the performance enjoyed by so many. Thank you, thank you!"

Amy, Holifair Festival, Gweek.


"Kabasa is a very professional, tight band with a great sound, playing creatively arranged songs that effortlessly hit that latin groove. They're  entertaining, really shift your feet and are a fun bunch of people to deal with."

Graham Gynn, Cubano Bop Salsa dance club, Penzance.


"Have heard several (latin bands) in the past that have been great but Kabasa were FANTASTIC! Great fun, good atmosphere, again please, soon!"

"A really terrific latin band with a great beat and
vibrant music – when they were playing it was impossible not to dance."

"They were really good! When can we have them back again?"

"It was great to hear some great songs sung live and well. A great night was had by all. Kabasa are highly recommended in my book."

"Something different for Cornwall!! A great new band to look out for - we look forward to more gigs in the SW."

"Good luck to Kabasa - great new salsa sounds for the south west of England !"
