Aventura was a bachata band or music group from New York. Aventura was formed in 1994 by Anthony "Romeo" Santos, Henry Santos, Lenny Santos, and Max Santos, three of whom are natives of The Bronx, however, their families are from Dominican Republic. With the exception of Romeo Santos who has a Dominican father and Puerto Rican mother. Another member was born in Dominican Republic. Aventura made their big break in 1999, with the hopes of breaking bachata music out from its traditional base and fuse it with modern popular sounds like hip hop and R&B. After their separation in 2011, Romeo Santos and Henry Santos embarked on respective solo careers while Lenny Santos and Max Santos joined Steve Styles from the Bachata group Xtreme to form Vena. According to Romeo Santos, the group is "on pause to do individual projects." Romeo Santos and former members of Aventura reunited to close out the second night of Romeo Santos' sold-out Yankee Stadium concerts on Saturday, July 12, 2014.
