Latin SOUL via Bristol

The Shingalings are inspired by the little-known Latin Boogaloo scene in New York in the 1970s; a fusion of Latin music with Soul, Funk  and R&B which had a brief foray into the mainstream.


Lead by exuberant talisman Drew Salida, The Shingalings entertain with a distinctive sound knee-deep in feel-good piano hooks, filthy horn lines, rapturous vocals and of course, those titillating Latin beats.

"BEST GIG EVER!" - Ben's Dad

"The Shing-a-lings make middle-aged women drag unknown youngsters up onto improvised dance floors, then shake their backsides with gay abandon and grin until their faces ache. If you don’t leave a Shing a Ling gig thirsty for more, you have no soul. I DEFINITELY LIKE IT LIKE THAT!" - Michelle, Facebook user and Shing-a-lings superfan. 

"One of the sharpest local things of the past year of two. The Shing-a-lings play Boogaloo [and other related rhythms] with style and a massive sense of fun. Treat yourselves." - The Bell, Bath

“Combining new arrangements of Boogaloo classics with their original tunes, the Shing a Lings bring the party— all you have to do is enjoy it.”  - Bristol 24/7
