Iaki and The Heat

 Menu Image Wide


The Heat is a group of musicians led by pianist David Allardice ( website host) .

The group functions as an instrumental ensemble performing many Latin classics in a traditional style as well as  jazz fused Latin instrumentals. We  perform as a four piece without a bass player and this can suit small intimate settings where a big full sound is not a priority. The optimum lineup is as a five piece unit where the individual talents can really come to the fore.

Musicians:  David Allardice piano, Jaqueline (Iaki ) Vallejo vocals, Rodolfo Hechavarria Despaigne Panga percussion, Lazaro Ernesto Numa Pompa trumpet, Mike Mathews bass.

Iaki from Colombia, otherwise known as Jaqueline Vallejo, performs a wide variety of Latin classics with a superb vocal style covering Salsa, Cumbia, Bolero, Cha Cha, Son Montuno and some Brazilian samba and bossa nova classics. All vocals are sung in Spanish apart from a couple of jazz standards which are in English. She is a very capable performer able to entertain and inspire an audience to sing along and dance.
