KK’s newest band Switch Grove started playing at night spot Rumba this Friday.
Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu recruited this talented 7-piece band from the Philippines to delight the crowd that regularly gathers at KK’s first and only Latin grill & bar.
The band members comprise 6 guys and a girl, so let’s meet the band.
Cooky is the band’s only lady and leads on vocals. A long time visitor to KK, Cooky previously fronted the band Swerve who played at Tang Dynasty in 2003 and BED in 2006.
The male lead vocalist JC, inspires with heartfelt singing and is new to KK.
Joe, second on vocals, returns to Kota Kinabalu after a previous stint at Shenanigans with the band Poetry. Joe also appeared with the band Swerve when they performed in BED, back in 2004.
Dean strums the rhythm guitar and plays the keyboard. He formerly played the keys for DB8, a band popular with the KK pub crowd.
Art plays the bass guitar and also previously starred in DB8. He returns to KK after successful stints with that band at Shenanigans.

Rumba is in the city centre, located at ground level, street level at Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu, and as KK first and only Latin grill and bar and offers vibrant flavoursome Latin food, a great selection of wines and a marvelously minty Mojito. Cuban cigars and great music are par for the course.
