Tom Ehrlich - 1/30/2009 Moe's Alley Santa Cruz

JESUS DÍAZ Y QBA
MOE'S ALLEY, SANTA CRUZ, CA
JANUARY 3, 2009

PHOTOS AND TEXT BY TOM EHRLICH © 2008

It was in the low 30's outside, but inside Moe's Alley, it was hot, hot, hot, compliments of Jesus Díaz y QBA. The band played their great style of timba to a sold out crowd. The leader of the group, Jesus Díaz, is a world class percussionist, who plays and records with numerous dance, folkloric and jazz groups, as well as giving workshops worldwide. Jesus and QBA come down to Santa Cruz every couple of months and they are one of the few groups that will fill the club with timba/salsa dancers. Timba.com Kevin Moore considers QBA to be one of the top timba bands in the U.S. and I second that emotion.
