About Tito Puente Jr.REG was proud to book the Tito Puente Jr. Orchestra for the Golden Moon Casino in Mississippi.
Now a resident of Miami, Tito Jr. was born and raised in New York City. Under the tutelage of his father "El Rey," Tito began playing the New York City club scene with other well-known Latin artists from the area. In his current band, Tito is the lead singer and percussionist. He still plays the piano but uses it mainly for writing songs.
Living in culturally diverse Miami has had a huge effect on Tito's creativity. "I'm thrilled with the many faces and sounds of Miami," he said. "The opportunity to listen to music from Mexico, South America, the Caribbean, and other parts of the world has allowed me to expand my own musical horizons, so my music can reach more people."
Tito's debut album Guarachando featured the hit single "Oye Como Va" (a cover of his father's signature standard), which charted at #7 on Billboard's Dance chart and earned him a Latin Music Award for "Best Video of the Year."
Tito Puente Jr. has performed in many parts of the world, but mostly in North and South America. He has been featured in numerous magazines, newspapers, and television programs and appeared in an HBO special.
Thrilled with the support he had gotten from his father (who sat-in with his son's band on many occasions), Tito plans to follow in his footsteps with yesterday's salsa and today's spicy urban melange, a sound sure to cross all borders.
