El Trio de Hoy performs at Mid Point Cafe, this Friday

The Mid Point Café (MPC) concert series continues Friday, Feb. 2 at 7:30 p.m. at Harvest Time Church, 1338 King St., Greenwich with a concert featuring Massachusetts-based Latin funk band El Trio de Hoy. The bilingual band will present a concert of original Gospel music. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Suggested donation is $10 for adults, $5 for teens. For information, contact Harvest Time Church at (203) 531-7778.

Mid Point Café is a meeting place, concert venue, and workshop where novice and professional musicians—and those that love music—can gather to experience the musical process. For more information about MPC, visit and click on the Mid Point Café link on the left column. Following the tradition of past concert series events, this concert will take place within Harvest Time’s sanctuary, transformed into a hip café setting with dozens of tables and chairs for relaxing and enjoying the music and a latté. The evening will feature interview moments with El Trio de Hoy and, as always, opportunities for younger members of the audience to jam with these seasoned pros.

Started in 1995 with three members (Jessie Gonzalez, Freddie Velez and Jesus "Kuzo" Velez), El Trio de Hoy now includes five members who create a blend of sweet harmony of acoustic guitars combined with an extra bass player (Alex Moran) and solid drummer (Orlando Gonzalez). Their sound has a unique quality that is enticing to audiences of all ages.

El Trio de Hoy’s contemporary rhythm has taken them around the country to play in venues like the Madison Square Garden with Dr. Rodney Howard Brown, the TWA Dome in St. Louis, MO and the RCA Dome with the Assemblies of God General Council. The band has shared the stage with artist such as Jennifer Knapp, Third Day, Andre Crouch, Anointed, Darlene Zschech, Bryan Duncan, Jackie Velasquez and many others. Most recently, El Trio de Hoy performed at the Potters House in Dallas, where Bishop T.D. Jakes is pastor. With humble hearts and a clear vision of their calling, these five pastor's sons are taking the message of Jesus Christ across the country letting God open the doors of the path that they should continue to travel.
