Fun Dance Music!
Sámara, Costa Rica, early 2015 I had 12 hours to put a band together. I asked a random Rasta Man if he knew a drummer and bass player, he pointed down the street and said “There’s a man sitting at the bar eating a fish, talk to him”. When I entered the bar I saw one customer at the end of the bar in the shadows, eating a plate of fish. I said “Are you Dusty Chuck, the drummer from New York?” He said “Maybe…” I said “Can you play a gig tomorrow night?” He said “Hell Yeah!” I said “Do you know a bass player?” He said “My friend Angus from Cooperstown is arriving tomorrow night”. Angus came straight from the airport and was perfectly on time for the gig. It clicked and the Happy Easy Band was born 🙂 -Real Rob The Happy Easy Band soon became a phenomenon in the little Costa Rican beach town of Sámara, making tourists and locals dance and have a good time 4 winter seasons in a row. Come see what all the hubbub is about!
