Sally Ford leads these all-star specialists bringing together their disparate musical backgrounds in tex mex, afrobeat, salsa, film music, ska, reggae and funk, to lay down some relaxed and rootsy dance grooves with Dr Hernández, prescribing a triple dose of electro-cumbia, funky reggae and boogaloo … good for what ails you!
The group features members of the ARIA-winning Melbourne Ska Orchestra and bring to Dr Hernández their collective legacy of leading or performing with bands such as the Spaghetti Western Orchestra, Texicali Rose, Yothu Yindi, Sally Ford and the Pachuco Playboys, Joe Camilleri’s Black Sorrows, The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra, Frank Yamma, Skazz and Batacuda.
