Started in the Camden area of London in 1979, the band has a uniquely British flavour of latin jazz rock and Afro Cuban rhythms. These support the songs and tunes, written by personnel past and present, together with the odd cover.

Personnel sometimes changed nightly. But it didn’t matter, as the calibre of the finest session musicians in the country presented the music at the highest possible quality.
Like great band leaders all over the planet, Roberto Campoverde uses and creates the combination to set musicians and audiences’ pulses racing. With the ferocious energy of the 6 piece rhythm section along with great tunes played by a minimum of 3 horns, the tunes rock.

The dance floor hit “Roberto Who” made it into clubs across the world receiving gold discs in Mexico and Greece.
The fusion in the 80’s and later in the early 90’s, produced a revitalised interest in Latin music in the Uk. The various members of the band played on tracks and toured with many pop acts, who used latin influences in their music, such as: Wham, Madness, Haircut 100, Eurthymics, ABC, Matt Bianco, Incognito, Madonna, Eric Clapton, Elton John, George Michael and Tom Jones.Cayenne played many festivals, but the most memorable times were at the Ronnie Scott’s Club. Here the band worked with Ronnie Scott, Nina Simone,Marion Montgomery,Gil Scott Heron, Paquito di Rivera and Arturo Sandoval.There were also gigs around England and Europe with Tito Puente and Celia Cruz, Machito and his Orchestra ..So it is with great expectation that the band play back at their natural home, in the heart of London.
