Bloco Brass are a modern brass and drums band founded in 2018 playing upbeat rock and pop songs by the likes of Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Drake and Ed Sheeran.

With a few Brazilian musicians in their ranks, the band also perform a variety of Brazilian songs, old and modern, by artists such as Tom Jobim, Luis Fonsi and Sia. In fact, they will bring all the excitement of the classic Brazilian Carnival street band (known as a "Carnaval Bloco" in Brazil) to your event!

Merging influences from both the UK and Brazil and drawing on their studies at Juilliard School in New York, Bloco Brass have created unique arrangements of popular songs that recreate the carnival atmosphere of Rio De Janeiro, whilst delighting crowds with familiar favourites.

Don't miss the opportunity to bring the spirit of Carnaval to your event and let Bloco Brass introduce you to the party atmosphere of Brazil with a European twist. Viva o Carnaval!
