Young Rebel Goombas
Young Rebel Goombas hail from Long Island, New York. Tropical rockers, their sound is not so easily pigeon-holed. Each member brings a rich and varied musical background to create the luscious Goomba sound.
Goomba means family. Like a big family, they share songwriting duties, and sometimes they bring friends into the mix. Filmmaker Jake Gorst wrote lyrics for “Feather,” “Cajun Band,” “Summer Whine,” and “You Must Love Me.” Cosmo Mallardi penned “All Day” and “Daydream Smile.” Bob Seng, who wrote for trop-rockers The Mangos, contributed “Library Book.” Richie Saccente was responsible for the rest. Saccente attributes most of his success as a musician to his affinity for Duane Allman and Dicky Betts. Young Rebel Goombas even brought their family members into the studio to sing on “Sing-A-Long.”
