About Booking Bossa Nova Bands
Originating in Brazil, Bossa Nova music grew out of the Samba, which includes more drums and percussion and is less harmonically complex. American jazz musicians Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd helped to popularize the music of Brazilian composers, culminating in the success of "The Girl from Ipanema." Hiring a Bossa Nova Band can bring a great cultural accent to your event.
Some things to consider when hiring a Bossa Nova Band are to make sure you listen to audio and watch video clips. This will ensure that you truly do book the best for your next event! Next, you want to get references. Talk to people in the area about the band and get feedback. Finally, get a contract. Many professional bossa nova bands require a deposit to secure them at your next event. Make sure to read through the contract carefully before contracting the band for your party.
