Dubbed "one of the all-time great Texas dance bands" by Pop Culture
Press, the 11-man Latin music Juggernaut known as Grupo Fantasma is considered by many to be the most exciting group to emerge from the
formidable Austin, Texas music scene in the last couple of years.
Grupo Fantasma is the closest thing you'll hear to the classic Fania
All-Stars live recordings from the mid-1970s, which still represent the
definition of elegant, yet, incendiary funk. Fantasmas' dominating live
show features powerhouse horn and rhythm sections, blistering lead
guitars and captivating vocals all wrapped in an air-tight James Brown
Their recent association with Prince hasn't hurt them either. Performing
at his club in Las Vegas, his Golden Globes after-party (with Mary J.
Blige, Mark Anthony and Will I Am of the Black Eyed Peas) and at the
CBS Super Bowl party in Miami Beach, has only enhanced the band's
wicked cool factor.
