ABOUT LOS PRODUCERS
Los Producers was formed in Miami in 2004 as a collective of musicians,
engineers, and producers for the purpose of putting together charitable fundraisers. From day one, Los Producers wanted to ensure that 100 percent of the proceeds raised went directly to the charities chosen. Instead of forming a foundation, they simply choose the charity and have that charity handle all the funds. The members have raised money for organizations such as The Breast Cancer Center, F.O.R.E. Breast Cancer, Education Through Music and Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation. In 2010, they approached BMI about doing an annual event during Latin GRAMMY week, each year picking a worthy cause. The band members include GRAMMY-winning producers: Sebastian Krys, Dan Warner, and Lee Levin, along with John Falcone, Doug Emery, and Rodrigo Cardenas. Performers in past years have included Luis Fonsi, Franco De Vita, Los Tucanes de Tijuana, Mika, Soraya, Jon Secada, JD Natasha, Circo, Aleks Syntek, Alex Cuba, Ilan Chester, Javier Garcia, Elsten Torres, La Vida Boheme, Jarabe de Palo, Kany Garcia, Andres Castro, Jose Tillan, Gustavo Menendez, Ron Taylor, Tom McWilliams, Eric Bazilian, Rafa Arcaute, Piolly Lopera, Mr. Pauer, Carla Morrison, Javier Garza, Armando Avila, Nelly Furtado and Juanes.
ABOUT EDUCATION THROUGH MUSIC – LOS ANGELES:
Founded in 2006, the mission of Education Through Music - Los Angeles is to promote and provide music in disadvantaged schools as part of the core curriculum in order to enhance students’ academic achievement and creative and overall development. We partner with low-income area elementary and middle schools that lack the resources for a school-wide music program, and collaborate with school and district leaders to customize a high quality, sequential music program that serves every child for the entire year. http://www.etmla.org/

Being Rum Capital of the world is the product of hard work. With rums from Puerto Rico you’re drinking a spirit backed by centuries of rum-making experience. We are responsible for exporting over 70% of the rum consumed in the U.S. Rums of Puerto Rico, a division of the Puerto Rico Industrial Development Company (PRIDCO), was created in 1948 to promote the quality and excellence of all the rums manufactured in Puerto Rico. The program reestablishes the fact that Puerto Rican Rums had been considered the best for centuries because of their highly demanding standards of quality. Enjoy the best rum, from the land of rum.
