Cuba Libre first started in 2012 as a small covers band in the seaside town of Weymouth in Dorset. The band primarily covered Reggae and Ska, and eventually used that as a platform to start introducing some of their own songs to the set. Inspired by the music they had started playing, the band developed their own tracks with heavy influences from Reggae, Ska, Rock and Hiphop.
After honing a completely original setlist, Cuba Libre worked at getting themselves as much exposure as possible with the help of Rabbit Hole Records and Promotions, the music promotions company run in part by Lewis, Rob and Steve. Through this avenue the band found themselves playing alongside the likes of Ugly Duckling, The FreeStylers and The Dub Pistols, helping to establish the band on the urban music scene
In 2015 the band reached a cross roads when vocalist Steve and drummer Adam decided to part ways from Cuba Libre. For a while the band's future was uncertain until the arrival of Morgan, who took on the role of vocalist, and Zoe on the drums.
Accomodating the existing songs for a female singer meant that a lot of the tracks had to be reworked and by adding a new drummer with a completely different style, before long the band had evolved their sound into the emphatically ecclectic genre that it is today.
Politcally charged and topical lyrics play out over catchy piano riffs, face melting guitar solo's and basslines that will make your pants fall off. Cuba Libre bring you beats that will keep you out of your seat and an electric performance you won't forget.
