We had a trio from Samba New York play during the cocktail hour and first dance of our wedding. They were absolutely fantastic--one of my only regrets of the whole evening (and it was nearly perfect!) was that we were running around taking last minute photos during the cocktail hour and didn't get to hear enough of them!
The band played "The Girl from Ipanema" for our first dance, which was very special to us as we had lived very close to Ipanema beach for our first year together--it was absolutely everything we imagined hearing it played live. I really felt like I was back in Rio! We even had a few friends come up to us after to inquire about their own upcoming weddings, wanting to steal the band!
Muito muito brigado for working with us (we were making final decisions down until the very last minutes and Samba New York was SO flexible and kind).
Hired as: Samba Band, Wedding Band
Response from Samba New York!:
Dear Aaron, it was our pleasure to bring a piece of Brazil to you and your guests, and we are so glad that you enjoyed our music. Congratulations on your Wedding, and thank you again for allowing us to be a part of the celebration.
