On Fridays, Havana’s nightlife comes to the Forge. Come and party with London’s Cuban community - everyone’s welcome! - try your hand (or feet) at salsa or enjoy live music from the city’s best Cuban musicians (and others that have flown in to play).
Every week a different, fluid group of musicians get together on stage, keeping the music authentic but yet with spice and variety. You can also enjoy Cuban & latin beats from in-demand resident DJ Javier La Rosa before and after the live band.
Tony Danger & Salsa Royal are the most exciting band to hit the UK in decades: a band of highly experienced Cuban musicians who play Salsa, Timba, Latin Jazz, Son, Bachata, Bolero, Salsaton, Cumbia and Cha Cha Cha. If you like hot, authentic, original Cuban music, then this is the band that you simply must see.
- The suave, experienced lead singer from Santiago de Cuba, who has sung at the Tropicana in Cuba and worked with many Cuban bands including Sur Caribe, as well as appearing in London clubs like Ronnie Scott’s, is the well-known Tony Danger, with Daniel Carnago Tablada on Tres, Kico Cowan on saxophone and flute, @Ernesto Cutino on bass, Felix Gonzalez on percussion and Randy Lester on congas.
