Zakke is nine piece band from Washington D.C. known for their Latin Fusion Style and their high-energy level performances. Zakke’s music blends the Latin rhythms with an explosive twist of Funk, Ska, Disco and Rock beats. Their original music is a compilation of daily life experiences and the sarcastic side of things. All together producing one strong mix of sounds and catchy lyrics.

The Band was formed in 2011 by singer-composer Max Velasquez , along with guitarist Felipe Bohorkez, drummer Santiago Granja and bass player Jorge Espinoza, together they started to play the DC scene as a rock band, songs like “Crimen y Castigo” and “Demencia” were some of their first original material.

A year later keyboardist Manuel Medina, percussionist Sergio Rosario, drummer Jorge Carranza and trumpet player Felix Carrera joined the band, by 2013 Zakke began their music transformation which it would become their signature sound. Songs like “Maldita Suerte”, “Hit & Run” and “Arrepentido” show the early influence into the Latin beats and rock patterns.

In 2015 the band continued to grow in size and sound, percussionist Camilo Diaz, trumpet player Ivan Perez, keyboardist Fernando Vitarte, female bass player Lula Neira, Sax Player Gabriel Lora and trombone player Jonathan Spencer joined the band; making of Zakke a melting pot of musical backgrounds.

That year, songs like “La China” “No Comas Peras” "La Otra Cara Del Universo" were among some of Zakke’s single releases to have elements of Funk and Latin rhythms or as they call it “Tropi-Funk”.

Zakke began in 2015 important east coast tours with international artists such as, Jarabe De Palo, Aterciopelados, Vilma Palma e Vampiros, Rabanes, to name a few.
