Based out of Chicago, Il, Latin Swing Factor fuses traditional Puerto Rican salsa swing with a Chicago soulful twist and also excels at performing all the standard salsa band hits that has everyone on the dance floor!
Both veterans of the Chicago music and entertainment scene, Tino, a Chicago Humboldt Park native of Puerto Rican and Mexican descent, and Valerie, a Southern California native of Mexican descent, both grew up loving salsa; Tino as a musician and Valerie as a salsa dancer and dance instructor. With having upbringings that surrounded them with soul and R&B music, music that they grew to love, they decided to fuse the two loves, and in doing so, want to bring salsa music to a wider audience, incorporating classic Top 40 soul and funk hits we have all known to love!
