The Boom Booms are a six-piece Latin-soul-funk-rock-reggae band that make music that makes people want to dance — or “get up and love somebody,” as lead singer and guitarist Aaron Nazrul calls it. They perform at the Snoring Sasquatch on Dec. 11.
Whether breaking into song and dance on the streets of Paris, storming stages with Congolese musicians in Brussels, playing to thousands at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival or serenading abuelitas in South America, the charming sextet is able to reach across cultural barriers and connect with people of all stripes, on levels equally rhythmic and emotional.
“The last time the Boom Booms played at the Sasquatch, the room was electric,” said volunteer Jason Smith. “The dance floor was full and the room was jumping. I can’t wait!”
Tickets are $12 in advance at Black Bear Books or Kingfisher Used Books, and $15 at the door, which opens at 7 p.m.; the show begins at 8.
