Biography

 

When a group receives the same love and attention as a major artist would receive in their own town, there has to be a good reason why. The songs, the looks, the sound, the creativity, everything is perfect. All of these things tie up to what is now Alofoque. With these advantages, Alofoque will definitely be a big hit in the Reggaeton market. Their reggaeton style is mixed with a variation of genres like Hip-Hop, R&B, Merengue, Bachata, Salsa etc…

The group consists of three members; twenty one year old Rey-D, born Rafael Reyes, 18 year old Jazel, born Gary Calderon, and 21 year old Geliz, born Argeliz Pepin. Alofoque has been able to have a list of profile views of over 20,000 people and more than 40,000 downloads and song plays of their music just on MySpace.com. “Our destiny and our love for music united us, it’s just meant to be”, they say.

Alofoque embarked on their professional career through appearances on many prestigious shows and events. The Latin Awards 2005 in Manhattan, New York was one of the important events that Alofoque just had to participate in. Alofoque was honored to perform along side of Judiny, Son De Cali, Cruzmonty, and reggaeton sensation Zion & Lennox, including many other successful artists. The event was promoted by different type of media such as Telefutura, SuperCanal Caribe, La Kalle Radio stations in Chicago , and Univision which Alofoque appeared on each and every one of them. Alofoque has performed in 10 different states in the past year, and they have performed along side artists like merengue group Oro Solido, Tulile, Julian Oro Duro, The Boss music group, Omega y su Mambo Violento, reggaeton artists like LDA, Temperamento, Arcangel & De La Ghetto, Plan B, Lito y Polaco, Tito El Bambino, and as mentioned earlier Zion & Lennox. They have also interviewed in numerous amounts of TV and Radio stations around the country as independent artists. “Alofoque is defiantly the missing piece in today’s reggaeton market, as said by” The Latin Post New York, NY. They are determined to become big reggaeton stars. They are a hard working group who focuses 120% on their music. Alofoque had their eyes set on the future for a along time, and now they are ready.
