Reviews from fans of El Gran Combo for the event
Mr Jose T from Florida: El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico is the most wonderful and oldest salsa groups that I have ever seen. I will follow their almost tour show. If I could not have chance to go with them during the show tours, I will buy their CDs as soon as published. However, I will go to their concert because it is held in Florida.
Mrs Antoinette from Mexico City: I have followed El Gran Combo since their first days and it has been over 50 years. What I love most about them is that they present deep love for salsa music. They are not great at singing but dancing as well. I am really impressed by any their shows.
