Paradise blends elements of Afro-Cuban rhythms with rock, jazz, funk, R&B, and Latin music idioms to create a sound all their own. From their humble beginnings playing the club circuit in San Diego to opening for Santana, Paradise is known for their frequently electrifying performances. According to their Myspace page, “Each member brings their own diverse musical background and years of musicianship to the band.”
