Supadupa Marimba Bros started as a youth band at MLC (Metropolitan Learning Center) a Portland Public School where their leader Eric Bloch Miller teaches marimba classes.  Through over fifteen years of growth, change, and hard work they have emerged as a legitimate band in their own right, laying down a hypnotic groove that sounds both effortless and driving due to the now innate chemistry between the band members, their collective energy, and the copious amounts of creativity they possess.  Crowds form and people dance whenever the band takes the stage as they are drawn in by the pleasing sounds of the marimbas, the syncopated rhythms, not to mention the diverse repertoire of music ranging from original funky grooves to deep traditional African melodies to British Pop covers, and the obvious fun that these young men are having on stage.
