Rafael Vasquez fuses Latin Jazz with salsa, blues, and rock and has emerged as a leading Latin artist in Music City. Over the years, Rafael was a member of several renowned Tejano bands, including Sunny and the Sunliners, Little Joe y la Familia, and Augustin Ramirez. From an early age, Rafael gained experience on the road, eventually signing to a major label and winning a Grammy award with Little Joe y la Familia.
Rafael now lives in Nashville, Tennessee, where he emerged anew as an artist. With a carefully crafted sound, his new band–the San Rafael Band–achieved swift recognition and opened for acts such as Michael McDonald and Kevin Eubanks.
