“ Sol Peligro is one of the most impressive groups we've ever shared a stage with. I look forward to sharing many more with them “
-Steve Berlin/Los Lobos
Sol Peligro was formed in '05 and is a Latin/alternative, eight to nine-piece band from Sacramento.
The group writes their own material taking on serious issues, touching lightly on the political climate and other subject matter such as loss and unity. Of course, they have fun-loving good music but there is always a positive message. All of this helps the group to have a strong and diverse fan-base.
Sol Peligro has a unique way of creating their music and a band comradery like no other and it is no wonder these nine guys have gotten through a lot together. During their time as a band, Sol Peligro has won Best Latin Band three times for the Sacramento Area Music Awards (Sammies). In 2012, Sol Peligro was inducted into the Sammies Hall Of Fame. There is only one other Latin band that has had this honor since the Sammies was founded.
Sol Peligro has made its rounds in the Northern California festival scene as well, getting it in at Concerts In The Park/Sacramento, the Tamale Festival, One Heart One Love Reggae Festival, Fiesta En La Calle, Millbrae Art and Wine Festival, Menlo Park Summer Fest, the Fremont Art and Wine Festival and Live At Lakeview Concert Series in South Lake Tahoe.
The group has also performed with greats such as Ozomatli , Groupo Fantasma, B Side Players and Los Lobos.
Sol Peligro's first album, Los Gritos de Mi Pueblo, released Sept. 05 brings a raw sound full of organic cumbia and righteous reggae.
The band is currently working on a new album, scheduled to be released in 2019.
