The Samba Llamas at the Hoogland

November 1, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

The Hoogland Center for the Arts is happy to welcome The Samba Llamas to our Club Room stage on Thursday, November 1st at 7pm.

The Samba Llamas began in 1997 as a marching percussion ensemble playing the street rhythms of Brazilian carnival. Over time, the group added vocals, flute, nylon-string guitar, and cavaquinho (a steel-stringed ukulele), and shifted its emphasis to bossa nova and pagodé, a jazz-influenced, indoor style of samba.

The Samba Llamas are Chrissy Becker, vocals and percussion; Chas Blythe, guitar; John Blythe, cavaquinho and shorty 12-string guitar; Harris Hatcher, percussion; Lou Humphrey, percussion; and Buddy Rogers, saxophones and flute.

Tickets are $15. There will be a cash bar.
