Josué Rivera Lacomba

Josué Rivera Lacomba

My name is Josué Rivera Lacomba also know as Josué Lacomba and I was born in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, on the 17th of September 1987.

I started playing drums at the age of three, but I started taking classes when I was 6 years old. I studied at a school named “Escuela Libre de Musica” in my hometown for almost seven years, and at the same time I was playing drums at church, where I practiced most of the time. In high school I was part of the school band until I graduated my senior year.

In 2006 I filled the position of drummer in the Band of the University of Puerto Rico in Arecibo (UPRA). We toured in almost every part of Puerto Rico, playing popular music and genres like: Salsa, Merengue, Jazz and a few Rock Ballads. All the things that I know about my drumming techniques is by my early teachers like Vicente Cruz (the owner of Tambu Drum Shop), Rey Monroig and Siaca.

In 2007 a friend of mine called me to from a band named From The Extraordinary.

In 2008 I changad my studies from Business Administration to Popular Music in a well know University in Puerto Rico, Interamerican University, there I took classes with the great Freddie Burgos and Hector Matos.

From The Extraordinary is currently writing songs and rehearsing a lot to bring a EP later this year or early 2012.
