We are Recruiting!

We are very excited to announce that our next course for beginners will start on Weds 6th Feb 2019.

This is following an extremely successful beginners’ course earlier this year where our ‘graduates’ have been enjoying gigging as part of the main band since the start of the bonfire season.

There will be four FREE trial sessions in February during which time you will be taught the basics of samba from scratch by our team of Mestres (musical leaders). You will then be invited to join us where you will be integrated into the main band.

Bloco Fogo is one of the biggest and most versatile samba bands
in Kent and the South East.

 

We are available for gigs, parties, corporate events and school workshops across Kent, the UK and Europe, to entertain you with our vibrant Brazilian carnival drumming and colourful costumes.

 
I just wanted to get in touch to say how amazed I am by you all. I was at the Rotherfield bonfire event last night and had such a fun night largely due to you wonderful,inspiring and energetic performers. You all have so much energy and skill. I have seen you at many events and every time just as good. Thank you to all of you for bringing cheer and energy to events!

Take a look at our blog to see some of the events we have enjoyed drumming at this past year.

Gig bookings in UK and Europe

For a community band, we have travelled far and wide to perform at all sorts of gigs and events across the UK, from summer fêtes in Surrey and bonfire parades in Sussex to the Thames Festival and the Lord Mayor’s Show in London, and even further afield to Cleethorpes Carnival, Jersey, Ireland, Germany and Nijmegen in Holland. 

 
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a HUGE thank you for Bloco Fogo’s incredible support yesterday . . . We’ve honestly never had a cheer station quite like it. The team and I are all still in awe of just how amazing you were.
