El Rectorado del Son is a group of Houstonians who perform traditional Son Cubano, a style of music that originated in Cuba and gained worldwide popularity in the 1930s. The repertoire mainly comprises styles of this era in Cuba including son bolero, chachachá and son montuno.

Formed in 2007, El Rectorado Del Son is known for their exuberant performances featuring classic instrumentation for the genre: bongos, bass, guitar or tres, vocals and trumpet. The all-Cuban group also uses the traditional Son Cubano sound to arrange and compose original music similar to the standards by Ignacio Piñeiro, Sindo Garay, Lorenzo Hierrezuelo, Pedraza Ginori, Miguel Matamoros and Compay Segundo.

Guests will enjoy free beer provided by Saint Arnold Brewing Company and other goodies provided by HEB. Texas Blizzard Shave Ice will be on site.
