The last thing you expect to hear from a bunch of Cuban-Americans is the pure sound of Classic Rock . The members of South Florida’s ” Mainstreet” Band grew up with these sounds and now interpret them musically and perfectly , may I add. They are a staple of local night clubs and enjoy a huge and diverse following. Their selections range from Lynyrd Skynyrd to the Rolling Stones and every sound and nuance you remember on the original recording is masterfully reproduced in their performances.
Founded in Cuba by Landy Castro and Gaby Machado the band was known originally as ” Sexto Division” ( Sixth Division) and later named by their followers ” Landy y su Guerilla” . In 2010 as a Welcome Home party for the original guitar player Mario Collazo arriving in the United States from Cuba the band reunited and decided to begin playing together again. Landy set out to find musicians and reformed the band calling it ” Mainstreet” , unfortunately Collazo died a few years later. The current lineup has been together for over 8 years and consists of:
Landy Castro – Percussion
Gaby Machado- Bass
Frank Sanchez- Vocals
Omar Pitaluga- Guitar
Frank Pozo / Bernie Iglesias – Key Boards
Experiencing this band in their Live performances , you will see for yourself why The South Florida DJ Association has recognized them as The Best Rock Band in South Florida.
