Heriberto "Tito" Gonzalez, "El Trecero mayor", arrived in the San Francisco Bay area in the summer of 2000. His music is typical and primarily "El Son", the music you know from the Buena Vista Social Club. "Tito" plays a Cuban instrument similar to the guitar, called the "Tres". He studied with Tres master Papi Oviedo of the Buena Vista Social Club and then with the greatest guitarist in Cuba, Octavio Sanchez Cotán.

Tito has proven time and again to be reliable, trustworthy and thorough about any commitment he undertakes. He is always punctual and diligent, and guarantees the quality of his events and gigs, by rendering the best professional performances. His professionalism, diligence, knowledge, music artistry and skills to play the “tres” and sing effortlessly have resulted in a very successful endeavor.
El Maestro Tito Gonzalez has always offered to his audience the best music performances with professionalism, timeliness and dignified artistry and music skills. In addition, he is an absolute gentleman.
Tito is honest, reliable and highly motivated to always provide outstanding professional performances that his fans and public in general love and enjoy. I also consider Tito to be not only a strong collaborator and colleague, but also a very good friend. I am very grateful for his friendship, courtesy and professional assistance I have enjoyed throughout the years.
As someone who has deeply and consciously enjoyed Tito’s music, hired and referred his services in numerous occasions, I write this recommendation for him, thus highlighting my sincere and honest appreciation for, and confidence in his service, both as an outstanding, skillful tres player and band director.
