Kilimanjaro is now poised to play their very first show in Mexico, right here in San Pancho!
If you were in the States during the mid-80s then you probably have heard Kilimanjaro. The bands first self-titled album was #3 in the country for Jazz Radio Airplay, along side artists like George Benson, and Al Jarreau. Then in 1983 the second Kilimanjaro album went to #5 in the country, winning the band two Indy Awards in the process. After a lengthy sabbatical, and after adding saxophonist.
Chris Peterman, the group recorded their most recent CD, Homecoming in 2009, which Jazziz Magazine picked as one of The Top CDs of the Year.
The band has played at many of the worlds most prestigious jazz festivals; the Montreal Jazz Festival, The Newport Jazz Festival, The Montreux Jazz Festival, in Switzerland, and in 2010 at the Java Jazz Festival in Jakarta, Indonesia. After touring the US, Canada, Europe, and the Soviet Union together, While the group was primarily known for their award winning original compositions, the band members also share a love of the blues. That led to them becoming Paul Butterfields last band in 1985 and 1986; an association that then led to them regularly backing up other known blues artists like soul queen, Marva Wright from New Orleans, and B.B. King alumnus Big Joe Burrell.
