Tropical Avenue celebrates 17 year Anniversary!!

Our band officially started on July 1st, 2007. Our band was patterned after tropical party bands you would find in Miami on South Beach, playing uptempo dance music! The original members were Jeff Hughes, Rhonda Brown, John Santiago and Ric Zaffuto. By December the band added it's first Female Vocalist, (Najla) and has always had a Female Singer fronting the band ever since.

Blessed to keep a full schedule the band has played about 120 dates per year since 2008.

Over the last 17 years we've performed for people's weddings, private parties, fundraisers, Country & Yacht Clubs, Festivals (we've been able to play Siesta Key's Sand Sculpture Festival every year since it's start!!) and some very notable venues.

"Always A Celebration" was our mantra from the beginning and still continues today!

We have been so grateful to all the musicians, agents, venues who have contributed to our group over all this time!! Many thanks to you all! We look forward to continuing and seeing many of our long time friends (and making some new friends too!)
