This week we re-introduce you to the wonderful and well-loved Cuban Brothers – the unparalleled act who return to Standon with their explosive show…

Where It All Started

The idea for The Cuban Brothers started with Mike working in Mallorca 20 years ago and has evolved into a fantastic live show – with each character Miguel, Archie, Clemente and Kengo each having their own captivating story. Miguel and his suspect sidekicks are renowned the world over for their party-starting skills, risqué sketches, B-boy moves and funk-fuelled music. From sold-out tours, festival spots and support slots for rock royalty to crazy cabaret club nights, film roles and fashion shows, The Cuban Brothers’ unparalleled act is now ingrained in pop culture.

Three Became Four

Five years ago, the trio became a quartet when Miguel, Archie ‘Archerio’ Easton and Kengo Oshima, aka Kengo San, were joined by their now fourth memeber Domenico. “Dom joined us for a video aged 17,” says Mike. “A fortnight later, having never been abroad before, he was with us in Singapore and Bali”. Everywhere from the Far East to South America, from Brisbane to Bahrain, from the Gumball rally to the F1 circuit has fallen for the Hawaiian shirts-sporting crew and their outrageous, X-rated antics.

Celebrating Two Decades

They’ve spent two decades touring the world, from sold-out tours, festival spots and support slots for rock royalty to crazy cabaret club nights, film roles and fashion shows but when Mike Keat created Miguel Mantovani, the shameless, moustachioed impresario at the core of the Cuban Brothers, he had no idea that the character would become his career.  Everywhere from the Far East to South America, from Brisbane to Bahrain, from the Gumball rally to the F1 circuit has fallen for the Hawaiian shirts-sporting crew and their outrageous, X-rated antics. Miguel and his suspect sidekicks are renowned the world over for their party-starting skills, risqué sketches, B-boy moves and funk-fuelled music. 

Seriously Fun

The Cuban Brothers may be a comedy act, but they’re simultaneously serious musicians who have played with Prince, been on the road with James Brown and supported Fatboy Slim, Chuck Berry and De La Soul.  A Cuban Brothers documentary is in the pipeline, featuring footage from their recent trek through the Highlands & Islands. After 20 barely believable years, much to Mike’s surprise, Miguel and his sidekicks remain unrivalled party starters still finding new fans all over the globe. Check out our full lineup below and join the Cuban Brothers Party!
