If you are looking to hire a group of musicians to bring the highest quality of salsa music to your party, then the Skyline Salsa Band is your best bet. At Sizzling Salsa of New Jersey, the orchestra plays once a month and, time and time again, the dance social is filled with enthusiasm; moreover, the dance floor gets packed with dancers and music aficionados, who stand on the periphery to enjoy their quality of music.
They are a professional bunch and their tunes are contagious. The good thing about the band is that they know about the history of salsa; as a result, all the songs they interpret are hits. The quality of their PA system is state-of-the-art, and they have a sound engineer, who makes sure that the music is pristine, regardless of the venue they play.
I Recently hired The Skyline Salsa band to perform at our baby shower. Best money I️ ever spent. They were punctual, professional, and most importantly, erremely entertaining. They took our party to the next level! My guests couldn’t believe how amazing this band sounded. Not only did they play all the hits, they did it with respect to the original music. This is no Mickey Mouse production. These musicians are pros that love what they do and it shows in their performance. But beyond all that their main goal is to get people dancing. It seems to fuel them! So if this seems like a commercial. It isn’t. I’m that guy that does not like to write reviews. But this band is worth writing about.
The Skyline Salsa Band was an outstanding experience! The rhythm and percussion was spot on and there was a groove to the melodies that really stood on it's own! Being a musician myself (rock and roll drummer and singer) I appreciate the talents of my fellow musicians no matter what the genre. As my lovely wife said "Music is music. It has no color!" Keep doing what you do! See you soon!

What to Expect
Skyline Salsa Band performs cover hits of your favorite salsa tunes, From Celia Cruz to El Grand Combo, we cover just about all! Because of our size, we can produce a unique that is not normally found in other salsa cover bands.
The Skyline Salsa Band is a 15 piece latin orchestra specializing in the standards of Salsa and Cumbia. From Celia Cruz and El Gran Combo to Lucho Bermudas and Grupo Niche, Skyline Salsa Band plays it all.
The group started just over 2 years ago as a quartet in an NJCU practice room by band leader and woodwind player, Charly Castiblanco, as a Cumbia cover band. Over this short time the group grew adding fraternity brothers, students from local universities, and friends who shared the love for latin music. Skyline Salsa Band (Under the name of Los Paisanos at the time) started to find work in music festivals in Northern New Jersey. During that time percussionist Leonardo De Jesus pitched the idea of becoming becoming a salsa band and as the band came to its current lineup, Los Paisanos decided to completely change its musical purpose and vision. They took the name of Skyline Salsa Band and play more than just salsa. They have a repertoire list of over 80 songs covering Cumbia, Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, and even some original arrangements and compositions.
Skyline Salsa Band has played countless music festivals, concerts, salsa socials, and for dance studios.
