FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LONG BEACH, CA (September 25, 2010) Guapacha Productions is proud to announce the performance and LIVE CD release of Guapacha’s “Something Different” album at the Gaucho Grill Main Stage of the 2nd Annual Latin American Parade & Festival on 1st Street and Linden Avenue.

Best of all you can purchase a copy of the CD release as well as posters and bright Guapacha T-shirts.
The group was formed by Gilberto Torres in Köln, Germany. He gave this Latin Jazz/Salsa band the name of Guapacha in memory of Amado ‘Guapacha’ Borcela. Guapacha was regarded as a Cuban singer of tremendous potential before his death at the age of 32 in 1966. The word ‘Guapacha’ can mean several different things like happy, open minded, different, and/or party person. Gilberto noticed he had something in common with the person and the word ‘Guapacha’ and decided to name his group after them. Guapacha has toured and performed internationally in places such as: Germany, Amsterdam-Holland, Turkey, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Luxembourg, and Cuba. Guapacha has stayed alive, with its unique style, by bringing together extraordinary musicians with tremendous talent to interpret Jazz and Latin music for all to enjoy and dance!!! Guapacha...something different!!!
