Sam R-P Band is a show you WONT want to miss. They are one of the new rising bands out of the Northeast and with a new album, the energy in the group is hotter then ever. As Rob, famous DJ for Portland Maine’s WCYY, once said, “Sam R-P may very well be the name that really puts Maine on the map.”


Sam R-P lives his life in music. He plays Guitar (which is his main instrument) along with piano, bass, harmonica and he sings. He's been playing in groups for many years now, starting out in his punk rock roots, playing in a punk band. Sam digs all the music in the world, and you can hear all his different influences in his music. He released his debut studio album, Midnight Avenue, in the spring of 2006, and has been recording songs in the studio since, here and there. He won the Sagadahoc County Battle Of The Bands in 2006 AND in 2007. In late 2007 he recorded another short EP, Jokers World, and recorded an acoustic CD on his own called The 607 Sessions.
