Conga master and Latin percussionist at MMLJQ, Velez has years of experience performing afro-Cuban, Brazilian and Puerto Rican jazz styles. He also performs with La Cuchina, Upper Valley Winds, Son De Tres and Von Storch Quartet.

For over five decades, Velez, a.k.a. “the groove master,” has made a career as an independent musician. He has lectured and performed at jazz and Latin percussion workshops, fairs, and festivals. Staying true to his heritage, Bob’s beats have a way of transporting you to a South American paradise, making any setting he’s in come alive with Latin rhythms.

“Bob Velez’s music is exciting, inspiring and evokes movement. He and his masterful group are seasoned professionals that guarantee an unforgettable experience.” Mark Woodyatt
