I know what you're thinking: 'With a name like 'La Cha-Cha' you guys must play Cuban music. Where's yer horn section?' Well my friend, though we do enjoy the Cuban entertainment, we are a rock band. Not just rock mind you, but Indie-pop-jazz-alt-rock-electronica. Allow me to expand. La Cha-Cha formed in the autumn of 2004 from the writing of Larren Wolford (vocals, guitar, programming), Chad Kauppi (guitar, vocals) and Marty (the drum machine). The three had written a few tunes and decided it was time to get a real live drummer. Chad had been in a band called Dub Sac with a childhood friend of his named Chad Wiser (that's not a typo, they're both named Chad) and we decided to recruit him. Hence, the name of the band: Larren, Chad and Chad. We practiced up and had ourselves a show at a local club, which went very well thanks for asking. We've been performing in the area ever since. All of us have been playing music in various projects since the early 90s, and we all have different musical tastes. That's why I describe our music as Indie-pop-jazz-alt-rock-electronica. Consider our influences for instance: Built to Spill, Modest Mouse, Pavement and Death Cab for Cutie (Indie); Weezer, Pearl Jam, Flaming Lips and Ween (Alternative); Wilco, The Beatles, Neil Young and Radiohead (Rock); Postal Service, Ratatat, Rjd2 and hip hop in general (Electronica). Less than one year together and we already have one full-length album under our belts entitled, 'Sounds From the Suburbs.' We have been featured in the Spokesman-Review's '7' weekend paper, the Finger and the Sandpoint Reader. We have also been on KZZU 92.9 FM, Thin Air Radio 92.3 FM, as well as KPND 95.3 FM in Sandpoint. La Cha-Cha is currently performing around Spokane and the region. Come see what you're missing.
