Artist of the day: Above Da Rest
Joseph "Joerock" Serrano and Luis "Smoove" Pinto have been performing together in various groups since 2000, but since forming the Latin pop/R&B duo Above Da Rest in 2005, the crew has taken off.
Their tropical pop-meets-reggaeton sound fills the dance floors at parties and clubs around Tampa Bay, including a recent gig at Busch Gardens.
"We just combine it for whatever‚Äôs hot at the moment," Joerock said. "If reggaeton is hot, we‚Äôll do reggaeton. Whatever keeps us moving forward and making money."
Listen for their new salsa single Usted Se Me Llevo La Vida, on local Latin stations now. And click here to check out an mp3 of their English-language track What Should I Do.
The duo is performing in Spring Hill on April 18, but if you're looking for something a little closer to home, check out the Peachtree of Life Foundation's Mother's Day Ball at the A La Carte Pavilion in Tampa on May 10.
