DC Latin Jazz All Stars[Page Top]
In November 2002, I was playing with the Zeniza All Stars and decided to leave and follow a different path.  I met Flautist Arch Thompson, keyboardist Bill Davis, Bongo player-Rafy Alvarez and guitarist Tony Harrod and we became the "Latin Jazz All Stars".  In 2004 I formed a new band and called it "Joe Falero & DC Latin Jazz All Stars".  Since its creation the band has played in many venues and at many functions on the east coast of the U.S.

Joe Falero & DC Latin Jazz All Stars have won two Stuck on Salsa Awards for Favorite Band in 2007 & 2008. They released a new CD, !Latin Flavor! in 2010.

DJ Joe Falero[Page Top]
He got all his basic training in Latin music at his parents and family member's homes in Santurce, Puerto Rico. This happened while listening to the music of Tito Rodriguez, Ismael Rivera, Tito Puente, Machito and many more legends of Latin music

Joe's friends began to recognize his knowledge of music and rhythms. Eventually, their appreciation of his DJ skills grew to the point that they began asking him to play his music at birthday and school party's. After moving to New York city, Joe continued to DJ. Over time, he learned to mix American music. It was in NYC where he began mixing music at private and corporate party's. 

At this time, Joe is believed to be the only Bandleader/DJ in Washington DC metro area. Joe is the founder and musical director of Joe Falero & DC Latin Jazz All Stars and Sabor Latino.

He has won "The Major League Salsa DJ Award", and has performed as a DJ in venues like: Zanzibar, H2O, VIP Club, Juste Lounge, OZIO'S, Cafe Peju, Costa Verde, Casa Juanita's, Indian Head Country Club, Balverde Hotel and many music festivals in the Washington, DC metro area.
