Friday at 8:30 PM – 11:30 PM
Redwood Cafe
8240 Old Redwood Hwy, Cotati, California 94931.



MOMOTOMBO SF is a 10 piece group of legendary Bay Area musicians brought together by former Malo members timbalero Leo Rosales and guitarist Gabriel Manzo.

The band combines Latin rhythms, Afro Cuban beats, Jazz and Rock to create an exciting, powerful and authentic Latin Rock sound straight from the psychedelic days of Winterland and The Fillmore. Comprised mainly of notable Malo and Santana alumni, MOMOTOMBO SF features selections from both iconic San Francisco native bands from which they came, with an emphasis on musicianship and improvisational creativity, and the intent to keep the Latin Rock legacy alive through sharing their music.

The inspiration for the band’s name, MOMOTOMBO SF, comes from the first song on the Malo Dos album (1972). Momotombo is a volcano that stands on the shores of Lago de Managua, Nicaragua. And just like that volcano, MOMOTOMBO SF is ready to erupt! SF is for San Francisco, of course, where the explosive sound of Latin Rock began. MOMOTOMBO SF. Come experience their fire!
