ATLANTA'S MOST WANTED ENTERTAINMENT would like to offer you our professional Musical Entertainment services of Serenata Band for that special event!
Serenata Band was born around two years ago as a trio playing just for small parties. People started to
enjoy our job more and more and the band started to become more and more popular. Thanks to this we have
grown to be the band we are now. Our current sextet format began a year ago and since then, we have become
the hottest Latin group in town. We have played in many locations (see Past Performances ) from small
restaurants to huge festivals as well as private parties, where the crowds do nothing but dance, clap, and
ask for an encore. Our variety of Latin rhythms, including Latin Jazz , Salsa , Boleros Meringue and many
others styles, are able to entertain Americans, Latin-Americans, African-Americans, and people from all
over the world.
Latin music already makes you move to the rhythm, but can you imagine a 7 piece authentic Latin band on stage making you move to their every beat?
With band leader Lui s Cor dero (Venezuela) on Bass/vocal, Tony Taylor (Alabama) Piano, Luis Gonzalez (Puerto Rico) Congas, Dave Freeman (Tennessee) Sax, Ben Taylor (South Carolina) Drum set & Timbales, José “Musi” Marcano (Venezuela) flute/percussion and Dan Baraszu (Georgia) Electric Guitar, the band has lots of energy and enthusiasm and really knows how to get the crowd going and going.
If you like Salsa , Latin Jazz , Boleros , Meringues & much, much more you will truly like Serenata Band; they'll have you dancing and clapping all night.
Upright Electric Bass
Luis Cordero - Bass/Singer
Native of Venezuela, a versatile musician who had his first taste of the music world at a very young age
when asked to play in the family band. Besides his natural aptitude and vocation for music, this professional
shows an impressive career and an ample curriculum through prestigious institutes in Venezuela:
Tony Taylor - Piano
Tony began studying piano at the age of five with the encouragement of his grandmother. He first played professionally while in his early teens, accompanying various local churches and choirs.
Tony received his Bachelors in Music from Memphis State University, concentrating on Jazz Performance.
While in college, he participated in a production of the Fats Waller musical Ain't Misbehavin' and also
the musicals Workin' and Tintypes as pianist. Upon graduation from college, he spent over 5 years working
for Carnival and Princess cruises as a show band pianist.
David Freeman - Saxophone
David Freeman charges past another milestone in his musical career whit the release of his self-titled recorded. This disc recorded in early 2002, features his new quartet of guitarist Dan Baraszu, bassist Josep Patrick Moore and drummer Joe Lee. Six Freeman originals are attached with abandon, the band dipping and swerving with each musical curve. "Dave is a double treat, a great writer and a great player" notes one fan. Another comments" The future of Jazz is in goods hands!"
Davis received his Bachelor of Music Performance (Three woodwinds) from the prestigious Indiana University
School of Music in Bloomington. From there, his professional career blossomed as the principal soloist on
the ship The Island Breeze. At the end of his contract, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where he began to
slowly fine-tune his craft, playing dues whit a variety of local bands. New York beckoned, however, and
David headed north to soak up the sound of the city. In time, he made his way back to Atlanta, where he
currently keeps up a busy schedule performing and teaching.
