Such a nice group to work with! Beautifully complex rhythms, lighter than air vocals, and precision guitar work made this group a wonderful addition to our event! Our party got up and danced with the contagious movements of the Music. Marvelous! A great background music ensemble for a dinner party or a center of attention showcase.
Anthony, Atlanta and the entire band made our Bossa Nova themed anniversary celebration absolutely wonderful. We got so lucky being introduced to them via GigSalad - and we are forever grateful for their commitment to making our day truly special. Do not hesitate to hire this extraordinary band - they give their all, commit to ever song and look absolutely stunning while performing. Thank you so much, Os Clavelitos!
Precise rhythms, airy and clean vocals, and crisp authentic guitar moved our guests from seats to dancing with little encouragement. From NYC, this professional ensemble was easy to work with. A conga line spontaneously spawned, the women got up and challenged the men to a dance off, the children spun and smiled... a pleasant event with a great group of people!
