Bloco Fogo rehearsal times and venue
We meet every week to rehearse and to socialise! All instruments are provided and no experience is necessary; just turn up, pay your subs, and join in! (we give you a month for free so you can try it out first and see if it's for you).
Historically, we have been based in both Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone, with the two groups learning separately but playing gigs together. From the beginning of November 2017, we have been rehearsing at a single venue so we can all practise together and benefit from more comprehensive teaching.
Here's where to find us:
On Wednesdays from 19:30 to 22:00 at Mascalls Academy
We are excited to announce our new 6-month course for beginners designed to get you started within an exciting yet supportive environment whilst also giving you the opportunity to play alongside more experienced players.
Beginners will start off rehearsing separately and then be slowly integrated into the main band as skills and confidence increase. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY - just a willingness to have a go.
The Whole of March IS FREE!
Come along once a week at no cost anytime from 7th March to see if samba is for you before joining the band in April once you're as addicted as we all are. Instruments and other equipment will be provided.
Anyone from 12-112yrs welcome. Please note that under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
We occasionally run a week-long Summer School in Tunbridge Wells during the summer holidays for 8-14 year olds to have fun and make new friends, while learning all about the different instruments and rhythms of the band.
We work towards an exciting performance in Tunbridge Wells with the main band and focus on performance skills in dance and costume production as well as drumming.
