Sunny Ozuna and the Sunliner Band

Sunny Ozuna is the voice behind an extraordinary number of soul classics, including "Put Me In Jail", "Should I Take You Home", "Cariño Nuevo", "Pa Que Sientas Lo Que Siento", "Fallaste Corazon", "Think It Over" and "Smile Now, Cry Later" to name just a few. He was still a teenager when he appeared on American Bandstand to sing "Talk to Me", a song that reached the heights of the Billboard Charts, becoming the first Chicano artist to appear on the program. As leader of the Sunglows, and later the Sunliners, Sunny Ozuna established himself as a legend in a number of genres, Soul, Funk and Tejano, to name three. In recent years, Ozuna's songs have appeared on compilations of all sorts and several of Ozuna's classic full-length albums have been reissued on vinyl by Big Crown Records in recent months, including "Mr. Brown Eyed Soul", "Missing Link" and "Smile Now, Cry Later". This performance will celebrate these albums and Ozuna's many contributions to our musical culture.
