Cuban Brothers come to Lyme

LYME Regis will be treated to the entertainment of choice for Elton John, Richard Branson and Robbie Williams – the Cuban Brothers – who will bringing their funk and soul review to the Marine Theatre in August.

Half-music, half comedy, their residency at Rob da Bank’s celebrated Sunday Best parties led to the band hosting the main stage at Bestival.

The band has supported James Brown, Chuck Berry, Fatboy Slim, De La Soul, Talib Kweli, and performed with Prodigy, Q-Tip, Chic, Roy Ayers, and Jocelyn Brown, as well as touring the world in their own right. The Cuban Brothers’ show blends soulful music with b-boy action and riotous comedy.

From humble beginnings, Miguel Mantovani, Archerio Mantovani, Kengo San and Domenico have built Los Hermanos Cubanos – The Cuban Brothers – into a legendary outfit that continuously sells out shows across the globe.

Mike Keat (Miguel) started the band after “watching dance music disappear” in the mid to late 90s. His love of b-boying, Latin music, and character comedy inspired him to create an irreverent, music-driven show to help him showcase his burgeoning talents as a singer, MC, and dancer.

After enrolling Archie ‘Archerio’ Easton, Kengo ‘Kengo San’ Oshima and, most recently, Domenico, the four-piece has blurred fact and fiction with music, comedy and dancing – journeying on a foray of fun and funky action.

The show will be held on Saturday, August 24. Tickets start at £13.50, available by calling 01297 442138 or visit www.marinetheatre.com, where a booking fee may apply.
