Eddie hails from Chicago, IL with deep roots in Mariachi Music. Also with 30 years of Singing and Entertaining experience, his Soulful English R & B Vocals bring a different fresh approach to the Cuban Rhythms that are being performed which appeal to all Markets.

Since 2003 Orquesta MaCuba has become well known within the Latin Music Scene as one of the Hottest Latin Orchestra’s known within the United States and Latin America.  Directed by the husband and wife team of Eddie & Mayi Lopez.  Mayi hails from Matanzas Cuba and the names Matanzas & Cuba were combined to create MaCuba.  “Their music is considered by many to be a High Energy Music with an impact that will keep you asking for more”.  Their music consists of Salsa, Cuban Timba, Afro-Cuban rhythms, New York Style Salsa, and Latin Jazz.  Accompanied by a host of high caliber talented musicians, they will not disappoint you.  Their repertoire has enough to satisfy both of the schools of Mambo/Salsa (old school and new school).

One thing that sets Orquesta MaCuba apart is that they strive to serve both the English and Spanish clientele.  Another thing that sets them apart is there ability to perform music that we all have grown to love from the following artist:  Billy Joel, The Stylistics, Grover Washington Jr., The Isley Brothers, Kenny Rogers, and The Champs just to name a few.  In performing the music of the artists mentioned, Orquesta MaCuba has managed to perform these tunes with their own distinctive Latin Flair and give the songs the justice they deserve as American classics.  Some of these song titles are:  Just the Two of Us, Betcha By Golly, Good Lovin, Lady, and I’ll Always Love You just to mention a few.

In addition Orquesta MaCuba has also had the distinctive pleasure of performing with 13 Latin Grammy Winners within the Salsa Music Scene since they first began back in 2003 and have performed over 1500 Big Band Shows.

These performances that have occurred with these type of showcase musicians /singers, have defined Orquesta MaCuba as a different high caliber Orchestra and have given them the distinction of a group that is more than capable of performing alongside of The Best Musicians / Singers from Cuba, New York, and Puerto Rico etc.  Their music has been quoted as a “High Energy Music” that will keep you dancing and asking for more.

“It is without doubt that Orquesta MaCuba has earned the respect of their fellow Musicians /Singers within the New York Salsa Scene and other major cities involved in the music of Salsa, Cuban and Afro-Cuban Rhythms”.  They have established themselves as a Strong Musical Force that not only play for their own venues, but also perform with internationally known acts like: Luisito Rosario (Famous New York City Salsa Singer and Entertainer) and Alfredo de La Fe (Famous Violinist and “Latin Grammy Winner”).

They have also had the distinction of sharing the stage with the Famous Sonora Ponceña & “Latin Grammy Winners” from Puerto Rico for their 50th anniversary concert tour.

Some of the clients that Orquesta MaCuba has had the distinction and pleasure of performing for are as follows:

The Atlanta Braves Organization, Anheuser Busch / Budweiser, National Black Arts Festival, The Latin American Association, The Georgia Music Hall of Fame, Hilton Hotels, Bill Gates (Microsoft Network), Syndicated Radio and Talk Show Host Tom Joyner, Turner Broadcasting Studios, Emory University, Georgia Tech University, Georgia College and State University, Atlanta Music Midtown Concert Series, National Mental Health Association of Georgia, Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Raleigh, NC, Club Mayan Los Angeles CA, Club Sevilla San Diego CA, Institute of Mexico Atlanta GA, The United States ARMY and the Los Angeles Lakers Fan Appreciation Concert in Los Angeles CA.

Other aspects of the band include their own Dance Company entitled CubaTai, which provides another strong element to the already complete orchestra.  CubaTai performs alongside Orquesta MaCuba in an effort to provide fan and client involvement and participation.  Another factor that CubaTai provides alongside of Orquesta MaCuba is Modern and typical Cuban Cultural Dance.  Our dance company is always available if needed to provide dance instructions for all of our concert venues and private functions.
