Become supporters of our FIRST ALBUM through Kickstarter

Finally the moment is here to make GREGORIO URIBE BIG BAND's first album a REALITY!!

Over the past few years many of you have asked me "when are you guys gonna record an album?". Well, with YOUR SUPPORT we can finally make it happen!

I set up an online campaign on where ANYONE can contribute funds and become supporters of our album and get some pretty cool rewards in return (including ME writing a song for YOU!).

So I want to ask you to become supporters of my album and to also help me spread the word with as many people as you can. You can donate from $5 to $10,000 and all contributions we'll get us closer to our goal. We launched the campaign yesterday and have already got $2,000 pledged!!

Here is the link for the campaign:

Thank you all so much for your support.

I hope you enjoyed your Easter break and that you are ready to join un once again at our monthly big band show at Zinc Bar THIS THURSDAY!


Just came back from rehearsal and the band is sounding as good as usual and we are ready to get you dancing once again.


Also, it turns out that this Thursday is the International Land Mine Awareness Day and I’ve decided to join the “Lend Your Leg” campaign (“Remángate” in Spanish) and create awareness at our show. What do I need from you? It’s very simple: I want those who come to our show to literally rolle-up your pant leg…THAT’S IT! Here’s is a video from Grammy winner Juanes explaining a little more about it as well as other related links:

It doesn't really get more romantic than "Boleros". These beautiful songs have  been dedicated in serenades througout Latin America for generations and don't seem to lose their charm.

I recently recorded 10 of my favorite Boleros with just guitar and vocals at Ears & Gears ( These are "one-take" recordings that, although are far from perfect, carry my love for this style of music. I've decided to use Valentine's as an excuse to share theserecordings for FREE with everyone! So here are the two options you have for downloading them:


By simply "Liking" on my facebook page you will automatically download a file with this songs. Just go to this link and click "Like":



Simply visit my website ( and on the top right you'll see where it says "FREE SINGLE". Click on hat box where it says "Get it now!" and just by entering your email you'll receive the 10 songs FOR FREE!

So I hope that you'll enjoy these and that yo'll help me spread the word. Maybe you'll want to play them for someone you love tomorrow!

Here's a list of the songs that you'll DOWNLOAD FOR FREE:

Valentine's Celebration with GUBB and Two-year anniversary of our monthly shows!!

Hi folks,

I just returned from an amazing week at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire where I had the chance of playing my music with the members of the Barbary Coast Jazz Ensemble lead by Don Glasgo. Very soon I'll share some pictures and videos of my time there but for now I want to remind you about our Valentine's Day show at Zinc Bar THIS THURSDAY. Also, we will be celebrating our TWO-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF PERFORMING AT ZINC BAR EVERY MONTH! So whether you wanna take your significant other out for a night of dancing or if you wanna celebrate that you are single COME AND CELEBRATE WITH US!

I also wanted to mention the following: For the last two years the cover at the door of our Zinc Bar shows has been only $10 and you can imagine that when you divide this by 16 musicians there's not much left for each. Yes, musicians and artist love what they do and are not necessarily driven by money...hell, if that was the case, no body would want to be part of my big band! However, I have the privilege to have in my band amazingly talented and professional musicians who earn their living solely by their talent. These are musicians that are constantly playing on Broadway shows, recording on Grammy-winning albums, touring the world and playing in important Festivals. They have invested their time and money studying at some of the world's best music schools and spend hours each day mastering their craft. They have put so much time into learning my music, rehearsing constantly and, as you know, "bringing down the house" at each and one of our shows! If I could pay them what they deserve I would. So, from now on the cover at our shows at Zinc Bar will be $15 and I hope that you will continue to join us a this unique monthly celebration of Latin, Colombian and Big Band music! Believe me, we are not getting rich by doing these shows, but this extra $5 per cover will significantly help contribute to things like cab rides (many of my musicians are running to the show from playing other gigs), baby-siting costs, bus tickets (our guitarist Ignacio Hernández comes up from Washington, DC every month to play our show!) and maybe an extra beer in between sets. I appreciate your understanding and I hope that you'll continue to support our shows.

Anyway, here are the details for this THURSDAY'S SHOW! Looking forward to seeing you and having an amazing time as usual.

PS. We have a new original Cumbia that we'll play live for the first time this Thursday! It's called "Cumbia Universal".
