Biography

There are multiple bands named Cuba. Described here: 1) Fronted by Jon Dacosta, based out of Terre Haute, Indiana. 2) Ashley Bates and Christopher Andrews

Cuba is a stalwart of the unexpected music scene of Terre Haute, Indiana. Frontman Jon Dacosta first started playing with bassist Ryan Lammey in late 2005 during the recording of Sounds Like a Story. Drummer Evan Amies followed soon after, and the band acquired a devout local following. After recording their sophomore album Epilogue, Amies moved away to attend law school and the band acquired a few standard stand-ins for live shows. After Lammey also moved away, DaCosta assembled a new grouping of local musicians whose sound, as would be expected, continues to evolve.

From incorporating bullhorns to mailboxes in their musical creations to passing out shakers for crowd favorites, DaCosta & co. bring a refreshing energy to live shows. The current lineup includes DaCosta, Michael Coffey, John Murray, Matt Hulett and Jimmy Rinhart. The individual members’ multi-instrument sensibilities allow for a great variety of sound, and numerous additional local musicians make appearance both live and on Epilogue.

2: In the shadowy, uncultivated land between popular music, countless generic prisons operates Cuba, a musical entity which, like the country of the same name, thrives against all the odds, in spite of the beliefs of others, and stands as one very persuasive example of how we might proceed into the next millennium world.
