A sweet mix of Bossa Nova, Samba and Jazz with a hint of a Jam Band. A smorgasbord of honey-toned,
sultry vocals is accompained by a masterful jazz improvising band often featuring guest artists.
A relaxing and friendly atmosphere is what you'll find at every performance, perhaps derived from this this special blend of groove-oriented Brazilian rhythms.
HypnoSmoothie was a delightful choice for our annual event. They were upbeat yet mellow, diverse and original while also playing some of the Bossa Nova standards we all wanted to hear. Band leader, Pauline, has a beautiful voice and charming presentation, backed up by a cool ensemble of artistic, trendy and professional musicians. They truly live up to their name and I highly recommend them.
