The Latin-Reggae-World-Rock group Ruckatan hail from Alameda, California. These seven members have all contributed to the local Latin Rock scene in the Bay Area and internationally with various Latin, Reggae and Rock acts. Ruckatan is a fusion of Latin, Reggae and World music. Members hailing from three different continents, infuse their culture and love of their roots into this band called Ruckatan, which includes Carlos Elizalde on lead vocals and hand percussions, Jose Angel Amador on vocals and keys, Blaine Hoopes on keys and various woodwinds and vocals, Derek Rolando on congas & timbales, Brian Camara on drums and percussions, Ray Uribes on bass/vocals and Ed 'Loveletter' Elizalde on guitar. They have played countless sold-out shows in the past years and have set off the masses into frenzy with their tribal beats. The music is very dance oriented with many Latin/Caribbean & World flavors. It’s a celebration of life and music.
