Sidcup Christmas Fun

Samba Came To Town!

On a bright and crispy Saturday morning in December, Bloco Fogo arrived in the somewhat sleepy town of Sidcup. We were there to warm everybody up for The Sidcup Christmas Extravaganza.

And warm them up we most certainly did, as we played our Samba Grooves all around the town. The merry Christmas shoppers were very happy to see us again this year and all were filled with the joys of Christmas... and Samba!

We received lots of compliments, "sounded, great", "love you guys," along with a rather polite noise complaint and a furious OAP!

As this was officially our last gig of 2017, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas, we look forward to seeing you again in 2018.

Paddock Wood Lights Up!

To mark the lighting up of Paddock Wood for the festive season Bloco Fogo were one of the special guests performing in the streets to entertain the hundreds of people that turned out for the event. We seemed to go down well with many people dancing along and shouts of more from the crowds of people that gathered to watch. 

We were also looking to recruit new members as we rehearse weekly on Wednesdays at Mascalls Academy in Paddock Wood and judging by the number of leaflets handed out and the people that came and spoke to us afterwards it looks like the number of band members might be growing!

The Santa Run

An amazing sight of almost 1000 Santas running through the streets of Rochester in aid of The Rotary Club of Medway. We were there to add to the atmosphere as we led the runners to the start before parading back and playing to welcome everyone home again. A bit of fun and all a bit wacky, but all in a good cause in the run up to Christmas,

Gravesham Festival of Lights

Gravesham's Christmas Light Switch On and Parade. We entertained the gathering crowds in the town centre from 3.45pm before joining the Christmas Parade with fantastic lanterns created by SameSky, climaxing with the Drumming Santa's at 5pm in the Market.
