It may seem like déjà vu from the ‘80’s, but much to the delight of their fans, Abrakadabra’s founding musicians reunited in 2006, performing and recording once again.  Well-known in southern California for its driving propulsive Latin jazz/pop rhythms, this band boasts a library of 50+ original compositions, as well as an extensive cover playlist.  Influenced by bands like Malo, War, El Chicano and Santana, Abrakadabra is a high-energy, versatile Group fusing Latin, Island, Funk, Reggae, Pop and Rock, and adding its own jazzy melodies and pop harmonies to create its unique musical signature.


Since 2006 when the Group reformed with four of its original members, it has been treating fans to sold out performances in local clubs, festivals, street fairs, winery concerts and at charity benefits.  Musicians lending their talents to Abrakadabra are: founding members Jon Coleman (guitar, marimba, vibraphone), Tony Dellomes (keyboards, flute, lead vocals), and new additions Vince Brooks (drums, percussion), Carter Aristei (drums), Tom Bray (trumpet), Ricky Vee (conga, percussion), Tom Lujan (percussion) and Humberto Moreno (bass).

Musical Magic
The "musical magic's" better than ever...

In the ‘80’s, Abrakadabra was the house band at Hermosa Beach’s legendary Lighthouse, consistently playing to sold-out crowds.  The Group also performed extensively at County fairs and city-sponsored festivals, as well as in the area’s popular bars and clubs on the LA jazz circuit with groups Los Lobos and Chicago.  Though geographically/musically the Group disbanded in 1986, they still occasionally hung out together to play their uniquely imprinted style of Latin infused jazz.
