Orquesta GarDel

When: Sat., March 31, 9 p.m. 2012

Orquesta GarDel remains the Triangle's biggest and most dynamic Latin band. The 13-piece is first call with area dancers, and its original studio EP, Lo Que Tú Querías, earned critical acclaim last year. For its Cradle debut, GarDel plans a few instrumental tweaks: Pete Kimosh plays an electric upright baby bass, favored by salsa dancers for its step-lively sound, and Brevan Hampden debuts a Cuban-style timbales/drum kit hybrid. Outcome? "The modern, funky stuff just got way funkier," says keys wizard and co-leader Eric Hirsh. A full complement of the area's finest horn players, percussionists, backup vocalists and improvising soloists makes tonight a major dance-floor alert. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
