SEGUIDA is a name that is very recognizable to the ardent Latin music aficionado. The NY Village Voice called them "THE SON'S OF SANTANA!" From their inception in 1972, Fania Record artists, Seguida had paved the way for the genre of Latin Rock to blossom. They are the PIONNERS OF EAST COAST LATIN ALTERNATIVE MUSIC! Their distinctive "East Coast" Afro-Cuban-Salsa-Rock sound grew out of the barrios of the Bronx, NY and has continued to delight audiences all over the world in present times. Seguida has now been chosen by MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL to be part of MLB.com's MAJOR LEAGUE ARTIST SERIES! MLB has created a special MLB/SEGUIDA webpage with all new music videos, band interviews and much more! Included as part of the Fania All Stars, Seguida has toured extensively throughout the world, spreading their infectious sounds of Latin-Rock-Jazz as they shared the stage with such great music stars as BOB MARLEY, SANTANA, MALO, CAMEO, GQ, BILLY JOEL, ELTON JOHN, Larry Harlow, Eddie Palmieri, Hector LaVoe, Willie Colon, and the list goes on. Their two albums on the Fania Music Label (Love is...Seguida, & On Our Way To Tomorrow...Seguida) still continue to enjoy record sales all over the world. Produced by Steve Adorno Producer,Composer,Keyboards, Drums,VOCALS Funk-Rock-Latin-Soul…Steve is a natural born musician. When he’s working his magic on his first instrument, the drums, Steve instinctively knows how to lay it in the pocket. His solid Bronx backbeat has powered several name acts such as Sara Dash, Linda Hopkins and Kid Creole and the Coconuts. In 1980, Steve joined Arista recording artist G.Q., whose three 1 hit singles include the now classic dance hit “Disco Nights.” Steve received both gold and platinum albums for his work with G.Q. Extensive world touring has brought him to many large venues such as Soldiers Field in Chicago, Cobo Arena in Detroit, Giant Stadium in New Jersey, Madison Square Garden in NYC, and The Winter Splash Music Festival on the island of Jamaica. During that time he shared the stage with many popular acts including Kool and the Gang, The Isley Brothers, Natalie Cole, and Phyllis Hyman. Steve is also a multi-talented songwriter/producer who possesses an amazing musical insight that constantly inspires other musicians. As a songwriter with an arsenal of songs to his credit, Steve is an endless source of creativity who has written in virtually every genre of music. He scored the music for the popular Nintendo 64 game “Major League Baseball with Ken Griffey Jr.” Steve also recently completed the musical score for the Off-Broadway play “RUS-H” which opened to rave reviews in NYC. In 2010 Steve wrote the score for the off broadway play “TOUCHSCAPE”. His instincts, hard work, and constant energy have facilitated many musical projects throughout his career including Devoshun, Steve A’s Blockparty, Street Child, and Lori Rose and the Rocketeers. It was Steve’s intuitive vision that facilitated the recent return of SEGUIDA to the spotlight. Steve is a true champion of New York Latin Rock, and he is the heart of the rebirth of SEGUIDA. Seguida brings tradition plus new innovations to the genre of Latin-Rock Alternative music. Continuing with their tradition of using English vocals and Spanish Soneros to top off a hot salsa-soul-rock feel has proven to be a successful formula for Seguida. Seguida combines flavors of R&B, Hip-Hop, & Jazz to round out the new sounds of Seguida. SEGUIDA recently performed two High Powered shows at the HIGHLINE BALLROOM & BLENDER THEATER in NEW YORK CITY.
