This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



Pioneers of their own genre, SambaDrop has fused Brazilian Samba drumming and electronic bass music to create an unrivaled, organic-electro sound. Producing both original tracks, as well as collaborating on remixes with renowned artists such as; Love & Light, Jansten, Omega, Djunya, ILLOOM, and more, SambaDrop continues to provide an unsurpassed level of energy and unpredictability that is keeping audiences on their feet. After drumming together for more than a decade, Matt Herman and Rion Ray Say formed SambaDrop, inspired by the volume and complexity of marching band greats, The Loyd Family Players. The group emerged from Grass Valley/Nevada City, CA in 2009 with seven members and has since expanded to twenty+. Performing at venues such as the Bill Grahm Civic Auditorium, The Armory San Francisco, The Concourse Exhibition Center, and playing alongside artists like EOTO, ILLGATES, March 4th Marching Band, Love & Light, Vibesquad, Gaudi, and Mr. Rogers, including three highlight New Years Eve countdowns for Sea of Dreams (2013, 2014) and The New Bohemia (2015), SambaDrop continues to evolve in both the electronic and live drumming scenes.
