RUMBA DE BODAS – Band On Stage around 2pm performing 2 live sets.
Formed in 2008 by eight young Bolongnese, Rumba de Bodas was not just about music than also chasing one adventure after the other. Keeping that in mind this caravan left for Europe, equipped with van and tents, and start playing expolsive shows all over the place. Featuring Ska, Funk, Latin vibes, Swing and many more it doesn’t matter what style is played but how it can be used taking the crowd to another level of movement. Standing on all kind of stages, but never losing the roots to street music to subvert the public order and making some cash, their tours became more consistent and even close to the borders of the continent, which led to participations in important Festivals like Boomtown Fair, Fusion Festival, Edinburgh Jazz Festival, Cous Cous Festival, Ireland Party, Montreux Jazz Festival.
The band was born in 2008 as much from the desire for music as from that of adventures of eight boys from Bologna. With this spirit, the caravan began, equipped with a van and tents, its peregrinations through Europe, gaining a reputation as an explosive band that transforms every concert into a party. Ska, Funk, Latin vibes, Swing, each repertoire is functional to the mission of moving the crowds. Plowing through every type of stage, but never losing the habit of raiding the street to subvert public order to the sound of a big drum, the tours become more and more consistent, with stages that touch the extremes of the continent and participations in important festivals in Italy and abroad (Boomtown Fair, Fusion Festival, Edinburgh Jazz Festival, Cous Cous Festival, Ireland in Festa, Montreux Jazz Festival). Going through line-up changes (eight became seven) and sound, the band churns out Just Married (2012) and Karnaval Fou (2014) which are snapped up in the squares and in the dance halls! 2018 is the year of the third effort, Super Power (Irma Records) is released.
