Thank you for checking in, even though my Husband and I didn't get to enjoy much of the band on the day. Everyone absolutely loved them!!! From what I saw my husbands mum and aunties were dancing after the ceremony and enjoying the sunshine and music. Perfect day for a live band! Even when I walked down the aisle I did a little shimmy to the music smile. They were amazing! Thank you so much! We would love to gift the band a wedding favour, what would be the best address to send it to? Nikita Miller - 1 April 2017

Song List

Mas que nada
Girl from Ipanema
So nice
One note samba
Apesar de você
A felicidade
A rosa
Agua de beber
Aquarela do Brasil
Cai dentro
Canto de ossanha
Chega de saudade
Coisa mais linda
Como dizia o poeta
Disfarça e chora
Embola a bola
Every breath you take
Falsa baiana
Fato consumado
Flor de lis
How insensitive
Lamento no morro
Meu caro amigo
Mina do condomínio
O barquinho
O bêbado e o equilibrista
O que é, o que é
Once I loved
One note Samba
Papel Machê
Quando, quando
Quem te viu, quem te vê
Regra 3
Rosa morena
Samba da benção
Samba da minha terra
Samba de elisa
So danço samba
Tanta saudade
Tarde em itapoã
Tiro ao alvaro
Trem das 11
Upa neguinho
Vai passar
Wonderful tonight
