About Us:

Samecumba is a Latin dance band, formed by musicians living in the state of North Carolina. The popular growth of the Salsa, Merengue and Cumbia Latin rhythms, make it imperative for the presence of a band where all these styles of music can be found. From these three rhythms, the band's name came to be; "Sa" for Salsa, "me" for Merengue and "cumba" for Cumbia. Samecumba has had a very busy performing schedule since its inception, back in June of 2001. They have shared the stage with such big name acts as La Sonora Dinamita, La Banda Flakka, Luisito Rosario y su Orquesta, the Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, Rey Norteno and Santino. This versatile group includes musicians from the United States, Puerto Rico, Colombia and Venezuela. Many of Samecumba's members have been involved in the local and international Latin music scenes previously, in both recordings and performances with Roberto Roena y su Apollo Sound, Richie Ray, Hector Tricoche, Andy Montanez, Pedro de Jesus, Anthony Cruz, Tommy Olivencia, Carnavalito, El Grupo Cardi, Orquesta Tropical, Ciclon Band, Fusion Caribe, Sarengue, Songo, La Sexta Clave, Charanga Carolina and Conjunto 23. Adding to this diversity, some of Samecumba's players have been involved in many other styles of music as well, including jazz, funk, fusion, rock, soul, reggae, ska, rhythm 'n' blues, heavy metal, folk and classical. Samecumba is the true Latin sound made in North Carolina!

About Us:

It was a quiet night. The earth was spinning on its axis, traveling merrily through the cosmos. The lonesome hoot of a barn owl could be heard in the distance and the same played-out songs were streaming over and over across the airwaves. That's when David Downing, founding member of Lab Ratz said, "Stop! Something has to change!" Not being a god, or even a demigod, there's was nothing he could do about the workings of the universe. Not that he really wanted to. He enjoyed breathing too much. And the mating call of the owl was, in its own eerie way, soothing. But that harsh jangle popular culture now called music, that raucous racket that seemed to say nothing yet say it so loudly...now there was something he could change! And so it began; an experiment with the bold goal of rejuvenating an industry and uniting a generation. Since that fateful night, Lab Ratz, a 5-piece musical tour de force out of the heart of North Carolina, have set about enlightening listeners with their unique blend of rock, country and roots music. With lyrical imagery that conjures Dylan and Cash, melodies and arrangement that range from downright folksy to in-your-face and a touch of impishness that can only be described as Zappa-esque, the group has put together a repetoire of original compositions that crosses genres like the Concorde crosses the Atlantic ... with ease and flair. It's music that is timeless and never out of place. Whether played acoustically in a cozy bistro or presented in all its glory and amped thunder in a coliseum, it is a force to be reckoned with. As one listener- turned-fan said, "It moves me. It makes me FEEL." Lab Ratz - a band for all occasions, for all people, for all time.
