 What?!  You're not sure which band this is?!!
 For the uncertain, here's more details, directions,

Many people have indicated that they don't know what band this is, which is understandable since I don't know many of them by name either.  But let me assure you, you've heard their music MANY times in all the good Salsa hangouts in Boston!  Fast snappy Colombian style, with Kumbia influence.  If you're uncertain check out the audio clips, you'll recognize them right away.
