Larry Harlow is a living legend of Afro-Cuban music. A graduate of the prestigious NY High School of Music and Art, he excelled on oboe, flute, bass and the instrument for which he is most famous, the piano. Although jazz and the stylings of Art Tatum were his first love, his growing exposure as a teenager to the music and culture of the New York Latino community fascinated him. This led to a 1957 trip to Cuba, where he began an intense two-year study of Afro-Cuban music in all of its manifestations, from West African based liturgical repertoire to popular dance styles. Over the course of his career, he has produced more than 250 albums for various artists and over 50 albums as a leader, including the Grammy-nominated La Raza Latina, a Salsa Suite, in 1978. Mr. Harlow, as a Governor of the NY chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), was responsible for making the organization take notice of the contributions of Latin musicians, which helped to establish the first Latin categories in the Grammy Awards and eventually the Latin Grammys as well. He was inducted into the International Latin Music Hall of Fame in 2000 and received a Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008. He still performs regularly with a variety of lineups and formations, most notably the Latin Legends of Fania.

DJ Ray Suave is native of Brooklyn, NY and has been a DJ since 2009. Best known for spinning Latin music, he also spins hip-hop, reggae, soca, house, and Top 40 among other genres. DJ Ray Suave is a mobile DJ that provides his own professional sound system and lighting.
