“Poet, actor, playwright, singer-songwriter and one of the most charismatic, manic Nippertown frontmen of the early ’90s, Luis Chaluisan led his sometimes madcap, always marvelous mambo-hip-hop band El Extreme (full name – La Gran Orquesta El Extreme) through many memorable shows back in the day, showcasing such fondly remembered nuggets as “Biscuit Head” and “Why Must You Funk Up My Life?”
Isn’t it about time for an El Extreme reunion?”
