Gil Velez - Lead Vocalist
Orquesta Son 9 is proud to feature the very special vocal sounds of Gilberto Velez. He has had the privilege of performing with Johnny Rivera, La India, Domingo Quinones, Tito Rodriguez Jr.; Michael Stuart, Papo Pepin Orquesta, Manny Pacheco, La Orquesta Impacto, Oscar Hernandez, Isidrio Infante and Johnny Ortiz, to name a few. My greatest joy was performing with Swing Sabroso.
