We hope to record a full length album of original salsa/latin music in a top spec studio. To be released on vinyl, CD, and digital download

by Dockside Latin Orchestra in Bristol, England, United Kingdom

We're the Dockside Latin Orchestra, a 17 piece Latin big band based in Bristol UK. My name is Joe Longridge, I formed the band in January 2017 after falling in love with Cuban and Latin American big band music, salsa, mambo, cha cha, cumbia. The band is a collection of professional musicians from Cuba to Spain and further afield based in the City of Bristol.

From our debut sell out gig in February 2017 we've gone on to headline the International Bristol Jazz Festival, Bristol Harbourside Festival and are now booked to headline the Latin stage at Glastonbury Festival on 26th June 2019.

With so many talented musicians in one room its hard not to to imagine the possibility of performing and recording our own music. Knowing the bands strengths, I've now started writing a handful of original tunes which I know the band can really connect with, and communicate through.

The next step is to make sure that we can record in a studio that can do the band justice, and this is where we need your support.
