The Cuban Missiles
The Cuban Missiles
The Cuban Missiles are 3 dudes that make music that they like. They make no effort to follow the latest musical trend or cater to the masses for the sake of winning over people looking for a new bandwagon. This band is about having fun. Some people play softball, video games, gamble their kids’ college funds away: these guys play music. It’s that sort of raw honesty that gives The Cuban Missiles quite a bit of appeal.

Mike (guitar/vocals) and Ryan (bass/vocals) grew up living only a few houses apart. They played in a band while in high school. Mike and Ryan met Colin (drums) as he was working at the local record store where they frequently hung out, never bought anything, and made fun of the people buying Foghat records. When it came time for their high school band to record a full-length album they went to Colin. After recording an album together, it made sense for Colin to fill-in with their band while their drummer was gone, studying abroad. When their drummer came back, it wasn’t long before he quit the band. At that point it was an easy choice for the three of them to join forces and start a new band, The Cuban Missiles. But really, who gives a shit?

Musically speaking: call it whatever you want. It’s kinda rock. It’s kinda punk. It’s REALLY LOUD. Generally, if you like music that is aggressive but melodic and lifestyles such as beards, cheap beer, and blue collar living then The Cuban Missiles will appeal to you.

The Cuban Missiles was founded on the fundamentals of fun and friendship as a first priority. No bullshit. No drama. This is still the format they follow today. The Cuban Missiles are like the guys that clean your pool. They work hard at what they do, slam a few beers, and bang your wife while you’re not looking.
