Pangea - Dorian Reyes, Raymond Daniel Rodriguez, and the rest take the stage for their first post-Covid performance at 6 PM.
Born in Cuba, Raymond Daniel Rodríguez is a tremendous guitarist, as well as composer, singer, arranger, sound engineer and accomplished producer. Living in Havana until the end of 2013 he was hired with his group to tour the United States when he decided to reside in Miami, working as lead guitarist of the legendary band Pangea, one of several multi-faceted collaborations with Dorian Reyes, iconic band leader of Miami-based Pangea. He also produced at "Red Rock Studio" in Miami, which Dorian Reyes and Gloria Estefan's pianist and composer Clay Ostwald owned until Covid forced its shutdown. Pangea is the long-standing standard of Miami’s live music industry ever since legendary band leader Dorian Reyes began the group years ago. Of course the members of the band have turned over a few times since its inception back in the day, but the result is the same: a party going on, as we will witness on July 4th.
Raymond was awarded a Cuba Disco, the highest recognition that is given to musicians in Cuba, where he collaborated with other Cuban artists like David Blanco, Los Aldeanos, Iván Lejardi, Maylu, and others.
Thousands of fortunate Miamians saw Raymond play with Dorian Reyes at the Deering Estate on Valentine’s Day 2019 where their original project Vintash Band played on the expansive grounds. It was an amazing performance on a perfect February evening. We are very excited that Raymond will be playing with Pangea on July 4th and while St. Luke’s lawn isn’t quite so expansive it is plenty big enough to handle the several hundred neighbors we are expecting on the Fourth. This time the music will be largely favorites from Pangea’s galactic repertoire of Miami’s favorites.
Thanks to his voice register, Raymond can perform different styles from R&B, Salsa, Pop, to Jazz, giving a different color to each performance and loyal followings on Instagram, YouTube, Spotify, Facebook, etc.
It’s been a tough year for musicians everywhere and Covid has put most in a tough place. But the light is shining at the end of the proverbial tunnel. This is Pangea’s first gig since the lock down and we are pleased to provide the venue to play for the neighborhood.
All are invited to this free event sponsored by St. Luke the Physician Episcopal (Anglican) Church and TheoEco.
