Romeir Mendez Quintet Kills it at Bohemian Caverns

WOW!!! That’s all we could say at the end of the set. These guys played their hearts out at a frenetic pace, with precision and a lot of energy. Every single musician was outstanding in his own right, and dynamite together. It was edge of the seat playing!
