Tribute to Yomo Toro & Evolution 2013
The year was 1969, a group of kids from the Eastside of Bridgeport Connecticut started a Latin band called the Eastside kids, where most of them grew up and lived in Father Panik Village. The band eventually changed the name to Evolution by the leader and founder of the band Mr. Ozzie Muniz.

Being in the band meant having a place to hang out with your friends and create music together. The band created opportunity for the inner city kids who were just hanging out after school, and gave them a musical instrument to play and to be creative making music together.

For some, it was fun and for others it was just the beginning of becoming a professional musician. Though the band changed musicians and style throughout the years, today most of the original members of Evolution have created their own bands and have played and recorded with some of Latin music's renowned artist like Yomo Toro and Ray Barretto.

Evolution has become a legend in its own time, being the first and only band in the state of Connecticut to record with Fania records in 1983 where two of the songs hit the Latin charts making it to the top ten hits throughout New York City, Japan and Venezuela. Evolution created original music that sounded ahead of its time. Even though the band no longer exists, their music will live forever.
