(Lakewood, NJ) -- Coming to The Strand Theater on Saturday, December 4 at 7:00pm is Los Ciegos del Barrio. Why not start the holiday season with wonderful music and sounds? Bring your friends and families to a show you will not forget.

Other members include: Jaime Diaz (rhythm guitar, bass, vocals), Jimmy Fontañez (tambora, bongos, vocals and sometimes guira), Angel Dueño (guira and timbales) and Tony Jimenez (congas and percussion).
