Press release CUBOP CITY BIGBAND 25 JAAR FIESTA!
For 25 years 'the most spectacular Latin band in Europe' (de Volkskrant).

It can finally be celebrated: in 2020 Cubop City Big Band existed 25 years, but the anniversary tour was postponed for a year due to Covid-19. Now it's time to celebrate! The salsa and latin jazz big band that is loved all over the world, not the least in Latin America itself: the band toured there and scored several hits. Grandiose performance for a Latin orchestra from Europe!
The big band led by drummer Lucas van Merwijk collaborated with a large number of prominent Latin musicians, including Alfredo 'Chocolate' Armenteros, Edy Martínez, Andy González (Libre, Tito Puente), Armando Peraza (Santana), Luis Conte, Nelson González (Cachao, Gloria Estefan, Paul Simon), Edmar Castañeda and Roberto Quintero. Between 1993 and 2020, Lucas van Merwijk was chosen many times by the readers of De Dutch Slagwerkkrant as the best drummer in the jazz and world/fusion categories.
