The original band was started back in 1968 by George De Jesus and was one of the most popular swinging Latin bands with some of the youngest musicians in the Latin Music industry. The band performed with all the legendary salsa bands of the 70’s and had the crowds swinging’ and dancing to their vibrant New York sound. The band also performed in all the famous NYC nightclubs including The Cheetah, The Psycho Room and “The Village Gate” which only featured headliners. In addition to their great performances on the New York Club scene, the group also appeared on the Miguelito Valdez TV show. The name Dee Jay was derived from De Jesus thus the band was named Orchestra Dee Jay because Orquesta De Jesus sounded like it had religious connotations. Cuban Latin music producer Ralph Lew who spoke English came on board and nicked named the band “La Dee Jay” which was derived from “La Orquesta Dee Jay”.
