Calle Placer

Calle Placer

FRIDAY & SATURDAY

Calle Placer is a multidimensional phenomenon of Latin fusion founded in East L.A. playing  jazz, salsa, funk, reggae and rock.  Their neighborhood of Pleasant Ave. offered them the freedom to jam anytime, day or night.

Vocalist Melody Betancort says, “One day it might be salsa, one day it might be funk, another day might be reggae or jazz.   We fuse musical styles and experiences to create a pleasant sound, a pleasant feeling, a pleasant time.  Wherever we go we carry that essence of Pleasant Ave with us – listening to the mariachis rehearse during the day as the birds sing along with them.  It’s a street where we can rehearse and the neighbors are pleasant because its known that musicians live here.”
