Marcelo's band put on a great performance. Their singer is amazing and the fact that she is from Brazil make it all super fun and bring the great Brazilian energy to the show. I will definitely work with them again, highly recommended.
Marcelo's Jazz Band provided an amazing musical offering true to the roots of Brazilian music. This band is very professional and resourceful. I requested last minute for percussionist and vocalist and Marcello was able to pull it off to give a complete performance. Keep up the good work Marcello Jazz Band.

What to Expect
When hired, we will provide the specific number of musicians and instruments requested by the client to the event. We can bring our own amplifiers and speakers, but if the location/client is willing to provide sound systems such as PAs, microphones etc we are more than happy to accept it. We will arrive 40 minutes before the scheduled starting time for musicians to play so we can personally meet the individual hiring us and finalize and last details. We play on slots of 1h30min, meaning we take a 5-10 minutes break every time we finish a slot. If the client has any specific song they want performed, they can tell us at anytime during our paid period or before and we will perform it.
At the end, we will take around 10-20 minutes to pack and leave.

After finishing high school, 18 years old, Marcelo moved to Sao Paulo and enrolled in Souza Lima music conservatory and then transferred to Berklee College of Music to finish his Dual Degree in Performance and Contemporary Writing and Production with a Minor on Visual Arts.

Our group for the most part do not require any lighting or sound support unless the performance is on a big space with a stage.
