    Orquesta Broadway was a mid-1960s/early 1970s New York-based "salsa" band. Orquesta Broadway and Tipica 73 were two popular New York "salsa" bands that played in the charanga format.[1] Some of the famous musicians initially involved were Monguito "El Único", a Cuban nasal-voiced singer ( he patterned his vocal style on the Cuban sonero Miguelito Cuní), joined in 1962, when he moved to New York from Mexico, Ronnie Baro, 1992, co-founder of Africando and Roger Dawson, conga drummer (bongos are not typically used in charanga bands). Their song El Barrio del Pilar is considered a type song for the marcha rhythm of the conga drums in "salsa".

    Tipica '73 began w. a "Jam Session" Charanga (Flute/Violin) format in 1972 at an East Side club called "…and Vinnie's.  Eventually, it evolved into a 3-horn conjunto (combo) w. Adalberto Santiago as lead vocalist.

    In 1975 Tipica '73 began recording "New Wave" Cuban music: ("La Candela," "No Me Critiques," "La Escoba Barrendera," etc.)

    In 1976, after a split due to creative differences, Tipica '73 emerged w. a new format, which included the addition of a Flute/Sax, a Violin and Tito Allen as lead vocalist.

    Subsequent lead vocalists included Camilo Azuquita and José Alberto (El Canario).  José Alberto was the vocalist in 1978 when Tipica '73 recorded the historic LP: "Intercambio Cultural" (Cultural Exchange) at EGREM studios in Havana, Cuba!

    In 1983, Tipica '73 disbanded due to pressure and blacklisting stemming from the trip to Cuba. After an occasional reunion gig, and under the co-direction of founding members, Johnny Rodríguez and Sonny Bravo, Tipica '73 (in 2010) finally returned to its Charanga (Flute/Violin) roots and is currently (2014) performing w. that format. Our current vocalist is Julio Salgado.
