Led by Cuban-born singer Jesse Herrero — a Westchester County resident — SonSublime has wowed New York metro audiances since 2000, when it reformed from earlier Herrero-led musical incarnations that included recordings under the tutilage of noted Cuban Charanga singer Robert Torres.
Herrera began playing with later-bandmate Mike Perez in 1972, joining forces in Tipica New York. Herrera formed the group Sublime three years later, and landed a recording contract in 1977. He disbanded the group in 1985 to delve into other busienss ventures.
According to Ed Castaneda, founder of HavanaNewYork.com, Herrera couldn’t stay away forever.
“Fifteen years later, in 2000, after much encouragement from musicians and friends, the group reformed as SonSublime,” Castaneda said. “In March 2001, Jesse Herrero’s own recording label, LASEMCo., released its first recording “Irresistible” under the new name, SonSublime. This was followed by their second recording, the classic “Gran Reserva”, which was released in October 2002.”
