Marcy Place arrived on the latin scene as a strong player in the Urban Latin Bachata genre. It is difficult to be compared to great Bachata bands as Aventura, Xtreme and others, however Marcy Place really holds their place with their competition.
Their music is a combination of RnB, Hip-Hop, Reggaeton mixed to the beats of Bachata, which proves to be a successful combination for the young Gen Y and the radio promoters.
Marcy Place made their debut in December 2008 with the album “B from Marcy Place” (Bachata from Marcy Place). The band is composed of 3 members: JC (Juan Carlos Cabrera who was born in the Dominican Republic) and brothers Joey and Billy Pabon. Interestingly enough, JC was recording at Lenny Santos’ (from Aventura) studio which is located on Marcy Place in the Bronx, NY, when Don Omar (the current king of Reggaeton) heard them and immediately saw their potential. Offering his full support, Don Omar took Marcy Place under his wing, and as they say, the rest is history.
Their first song “Todo lo que soy” became an instant hit because of its catchy rhythm and new beats. Their second single “Dame un chance nena” was another success. More songs were composed, this time collaborating with Don Omar, Wisin Y Yandel and Jayko (all of them famous Latin artists).
Even though Marcy Place first single “Todo lo que soy” debuted on the Latin Billboard charts and their music is famous in North America and Latin America, Marcy Place’s Bachata style has not arrived to Australia yet. The Australian audience has not had the privilege to enjoy their music, but we predict that as soon as the DJs and Promoters start playing their music, their popularity will rise here in the land down under.
