A lifelong resident of the Big Apple, Font took advantage of the cha-cha dance craze to slide over from Latin audiences to society gigs. In the early 1950s, Font's band, which included trumpeter Joe Cain and drummer Steve Berrios and featured singer John Font (no relation) on vocals, held down a long-running gig at the Raleigh Hotel. His repertoire was a mix of standards and Latin numbers, particularly standards played to Latin rhythms.

He kept a lid on his players, however, so don't expect his albums to make any ripples in your martinis. By the early 1960s, though, New York's high society had tired of cha-chas, mambos, merengues, pachangas, and other Latin dances, and Font moved to Puerto Rico, where he continued to lead a band for a number of years.
