‘Small But Massive’ Samba Band


Bring the Latin sounds of carnival to your event with our Brazilian Samba band!

Our Brazilian themed Samba band is made up of a group of experienced Samba drummers who know just how to get the audience on their feet and dancing to the beat. From big bass surdo drums to high and cutting tambourine and agogo bell solos. Small But Massive Samba creates a pure Brazilian Samba experience.

Our samba band are available for big events or small events, and can be hired to perform at festivals, carnivals, weddings, for private, corporate and public events.

Get in touch as we would love to discuss how we can get your event going with a bang.

We have lots of experience playing samba at many different types of events from carnival, parades and events.

Please bear in mind that our samba band tends to get very booked up especially in the summer, so advance booking is recommended!

Costs to book Small But Massive Samba band vary. Please get in touch with details of when and where your event is, what type of event it is, how long you’d like us to play for, what sort of performance slot you are looking for (e.g.parading / performing in a designated space), how large the venue is, whether you’ve got an idea of the number of players you’re looking for and whether you have a set budget in mind; and we’ll get back to you with an outline of what we can do.

Charity & Fundraising Gigs

We play a limited number of these gigs per year. Please feel free to get in touch together with some details of your organisation and we’ll see if we can help you!
