We recently celebrated our 25th Annual Latino street festival, FIESTA '17 on Septemper 23rd in
Winston-Salem, NC and needed to have a great band to make our event special.
Thrilled to have booked Willie Ziavino and the C.O.T. Band. This band is awesome and really gets the crowd moving. They play a great variety of music that appeals to our everyone including our audience with different Latin American roots.
Willie's voice is just beautiful and his band is phenomenal. Nobody wanted it to end!!!
Don't miss out on this talented group!!

Willie, Juan and the band were all incredible musicians and entertainers at our party last weekend.
They bring good energy and really set the tone for the evening with their energetic latin music. In short, we hosted a cuban themed outdoor movie party with food trucks. We showed the film "Chef" which was full of lively cuban music, so I thought Willie Ziavino and C.O.T Band would be perfect as the opening act.
They were beyond amazing. From the beginning, they were very professional and responsive. They responded to my inquiry with in hours and Willie was so friendly. Without hesitation, they agreed to a fairly loose plan because we were unsure of weather. We had to have two different scenarios in place (one being them staying only two hours and the other potentially having them stay for 4 hours) just in case weather turned out to be bad, and Willie/Juan were more than willing to make anything we needed work.
I know this was a big compromise for them as they likely could have accepted a gig later in the evening, but they stuck around for us, and for that, I am forever grateful.
They were fun and engaging with the crowd and many people already knew them from other events.
Everyone was thrilled they were there and I will most certainly be calling them back for next years party!

Awesome music by musicians who care about the customer being happy! Willie Ziavino & the C.O.T. Band played for cinco de mayo and we're wonderful! Engaging, festive, energetic and played great music- wish we had booked them for More hours. Guests loved it and really enjoyed themselves...highly recommend them!!!

THE BEST band in ATL!!! A party and a joy every song, every evening! I am not Latina, but I've learned to love Salsa and tropical music because of Willie and his C.O.T. Band.
You must visit Eclipse di Luna and experience their flawless, exuberant, and very sensual music. Dancing is optional but you will not be able to sit still to their mesmerizing tunes, rhythm and vocals. NOTE TO MEN: take your lovely lady here you'll be WINNING!!! TRUST ME.

Willie Ziavino & the C.O.T. Band are on their way to a Grammy Award. One day this will be true; so how cool to be able to say when that day comes that you hired them for your event.
Just by watching their youtube videos, you will understand how incredibly talented they are, but live in front of your friends, family or company, they are even more amazing.
My wife Jeana and I were married at my brother's property; 27 manicured acres of perfect playing host to two families and many friends from around the world. The band had to be world class also...and it was. Our friends all remarked how special Willie and his band made the day. Jeana and I agree. Nearly everyone purchased the CD off of iTunes as they were leaving the party.
Thank you Willie Z and the C.O.T.! Jeana and I hope you will think of us when that Grammy does come through and you are deciding on invites! I vote for your version of Las Grimas Negras to put you over the top! Best always!
