    The Richard Peña Jazz Band Comes to Santo Domingo
    Santo Domingo, July 5th 2017

    Jazz en dominicana is proud to present from Puerto Rico the Richard Peña Latin Jazz Band’s Santo Domingo Festival Tour: three concerts in three nights.

    Thursday July 6th through Saturday July 8th, the young and talented guitarist Richard Peña will be accompanied by five musicians at the Santo Domingo Jazz Festival in three locations: the Casa de Teatro, the Fiesta Sunset Jazz, and Santo Domingo de Fiesta.

    The sextet has the ability to offer big band sound without the need for 20 musicians. The group focuses mainly on its own music, which brings together melodies from different cultures, influences, and styles to create a new and refreshing sound. With three opportunities to see the group, don’t miss out on jazz with Puerto Rican flair!

    About Richard Peña

    Since his childhood, Richard Peña has been playing instruments at a high level: at age 7 he was able to play Mozart on the piano. In the Ernesto Ramos Antonini Music School of San Juan, he learned classical guitar, composition, vocals and harmony, musical ensembles, musical theory, and to play five instruments.

    At 16 years old the Guess Who Jazz Quartet invited Peña to be the group’s bassist, and from there he began to flourish in mainstream music. Along with the Guess Who Jazz Quartet Peña has shared the stage with some of the greats, including Charlie Sepúlveda, Paoli Mejía, Edmar Colón, Samuel Morales, Brenda Hopkins, the Greek saxophonist Yannis Kassetas, and countless artistically-inclined Puerto Ricans.

    Peña has participated in the Heineken Ventana al Jazz Festival in Orlando, Florida, in the Long Weekends Jazz Festival at Palmas del Mar five times, in the Humacao Jazz Festival, and in dozens of activities and festivals both nationally and internationally. He recorded his first album, titled “Guess Who Jazz Quartet: Ready for Departure” at 17 years of age. He has written over 20 original compositions and countless musical arrangements for various musical styles such as symphony orchestra, Big Band Jazz, Small and Large Group Jazz, Classical Music, Rock, Fusion, Swing, Bossa Nova, Salsa, Boleros, Latin Music, and more.
