Playing Since 1990
Founded by José Ayala in 1990, Furia Tropikal was born in the small Latino-populated community of Union City, NJ. Just a ferry away from New York City. Our band started performing at family parties, local restaurants, weddings, and company events. Eventually, it grew into performing at major festivals around the East Coast.
