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 J obim, 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!

The trumpeter and founder of Bloco Brass is originally from Rio and has studied music at the Juilliard School in New York. He created the group by arranging and rehearsing popular songs from both the UK and Brazil.

Every year thousands gather in Rio streets and clubs to celebrate Carnaval and to listen and party to the music of the many different Blocos that the city has to offer. Bloco Brass has the mission to honour the Bloco tradition of celebrating music and life in Europe. Viva o Carnaval!
