"Cracked Latin will perform in trio format on Irwin's program Weds. Aug 3 at 3:30pm. Cracked Latin is fronted by two longtime friends, Lane Steinberg of New York and Luis Accorsi of Venezuela. The band conceptually hatched over leisurely afternoons of triple espressos listening to old Celia Cruz and Johnny Pacheco records. The idea was to fuse Latin-American elements with a heavy dose of late '60s psychedelia. Although Cracked Latin performs live as a ten-piece orchestra with horns, this WFMU performance will feature a relaxed summery approach with a focus on vocals. Veteran drummer Charlie Zeleny, who handles many of the band's arrangements, rounds out the trio."
