December was so much fun for us because we participated in important events. We had the honor of participating in the sixth annual Make Music Winter Solstice event in Rockefeller Plaza.  First of all, we started off in the jolly plaza by the big tree and strolled up to Radio City Music Hall.  Next we moseyed our way down 6th Avenue with multiple stops along the way.  Most noteworthy, we were promptly kicked out from in front of the Fox News building (Boo!) and continued on our merry way.  Heading to 46th Street, or Little Brazil Way, we made merry along there to Times Square where we continued the jam with our fans and tourists!  We made a lot of new friends along the way and a lot of great memories.  See some photos below of FogoAzul NYC Samba Band, NYC Drumline, Marching Band, Samba Reggae, Brazilian drumline!

Next, we were so amped up from this event that we couldn’t stop playing and kept playing all of the way into Times Square.  Therefore we found a lot of new fans and made friends with many of the people dressed as the Statue of Liberty!

Check out another video below of us playing by a new fan!  Seems like everyone was dancing along with us!  Most noteworthy, check out all of the people videotaping us with their phones!

 

 

Happy New Year!

We kicked off the New Year at Coney Island, setting the beat for the annual New Year’s Day Polar Bear Plunge.  Thousands of people jumped into the Atlantic Ocean to raise money for Camp Sunshine, a haven for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.  Many were in bathing suits, but many more were in costumes and wearing inflatables!  It was a blast and we drummed up the energy for a good cause!
