ORQUESTA ALTO MAIZ TURNS 36!

In what seems like the blink of an eye "Orquesta Alto Maiz" (OAM) has gone from one, fun experimental gig in 1986 to becoming one of the midwest's most recognized, respected and talked about "salsa" and Latin Jazz bands. Thirty-six years later the band has weathered reports of it's disbanding, a long and dangerous pandemic, and still stands strong with it's uncompromising commitment to outstanding musicianship. The band turns thirty-six this year and will begin celebrating early by making yet another appearance at Iowa State University's "Noche Puertorriqueña". We want to thank ISU's Puerto Rican Student Association for inviting us to be a part of this long-standing celebration.
