A selection of our past work





Brian - Birthday Party

"I booked the band for my 65th Birthday, redundancy and retirement all in one party. Wanted something different as all my guests would be expecting the usual group playing dance music and 'Boy' was this something different. Guests had not been told anything except wear bright clothing. All became apparent when the dancers came on. Very professional in the way everything was conducted from the start to the arranging of the arrival tie at the hotel for the sound check. Fantastic show. Got the audience involved and the music was spot on. I could not have asked for anything better and everyone went home talking about them. Thanks to all in the band and the dancers for making it such a fantastic evening. Would have no hesitation in booking them again although having seen the impact they made and for a bigger impact, would add the drummers next time."


Mike - Birthday Party

“Can’t thank you guys enough, it was amazing, way surpassed my expectations. The atmosphere was electric and everybody embraced it, people haven’t stopped saying how amazing it was. Most importantly, my wife absolutely loved it and was overwhelmed by it all, we spent most of yesterday reliving it via the videos... loved every minute.”


Astrid J. - Charity Ball

"We used the Tropicalia dancers for our school's Charity 'Carnival' Ball. Right from the outset, Leo was very professional, communicated well and we felt like we were in safe hands throughout the whole process. The dancers were professional, looked amazing and added a whole new dimension to our event. It was a pleasure to work with Tropicalia and I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone. Thanks again to Leo and the dancers."

Poonam G. - Birthday Party

“Wow! Our guests and us were blown away with the performance. When the drummers started playing everyone was on their feet cheering, clapping and moving to the beat and the atmosphere turned electric when curtains were lifted to reveal the beautiful Samba dancers with their outstanding colourful costumes. The dancing did not stop all night. Thank you to team Tropicalia for making the evening so memorable for our birthday party.”


E. Benstead - East Anglia Children Hospices

“Thank you so much for coming to the Norfolk Show Ball. You were all amazing on the night, loved the performance and you got everyone up dancing! We have raised over £50,000 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices so it was a very successful evening and thank you for being part of it. Thanks again for your support”

We didn't need to worry about where they were etc. as they were always on time at the venue and ready to go when doors were open to the event. The guests loved the meet & greet & dance sets.

Sarah C. – Brent Council – Golden Summer Celebration

“The feedback we have so far about Sunday has been extremely positive and your performance ended the event just as we had hoped. Your whole performance from beginning to end was full of colour, energy and show stopping sparkle. The audience, whether young or old, were engaged throughout and the way everyone moved forward was testament to the fantastic costumes and wonderful music. I was up at the top end of the event for some of your performance and the stage looked fabulous, with light starting to fade, the colours on stage really stood out and made the whole thing look spectacular. Your professionalism in setting up quickly was also greatly appreciated. Thank you for all your help and support.”​ 



P. Frost - WKPGS Rio Carnival Event

"We booked Tropicalia for our "Rio Carnival" event. From the initial enquiry, we found dealing with Leo and understanding the requirements on both sides to be a very easy process.He was excellent in understanding what we were trying to achieve & recommending the best options for both the outdoor & indoor elements of our function.On the day, the entertainers, drummers & singers fitted in fantastically with the mood of our 300 guests. Happily mingling & posing for pictures before the drummers raised the tempo pre-dinner.The main event, post dinner was a spectacular success with all the guests & they thoroughly enjoyed the band, singing & dancing, especially those who were brave enough to join in.We would unhesitatingly recommend Tropicalia to anyone considering this type of theme for an event & would be happy to be contacted.Leo, to you and all your team, thank you for making our night such a success for our guests."



Imperial College - London

“Thank you so much for such a fantastic show – you really did bring Rio to Imperial College. We have many staff here that are Brazilian/Portuguese and they really felt included in this year’s event. They are right in the fact that everyone was just wowed by the effect that you created on the stage and I think safe to say it was totally unexpected by many! it was fun with a very exotic touch. I don’t think the College or QT have ever seen the like of the Samba dancers who glittered and danced in perfect sunlight!”



K. Ingham - Bucks & MK Sport Awards

“This is the first time we've booked a professional act for our annual event, usually using local youth acts. We were initially reluctant to spend the amount of money on an act which was one of many of the night, however the Carnival dancers were fantastic and really made a ‘wow’ impact to our event we wouldn’t otherwise have achieved. The communication with the act was fantastic and really put my mind at ease that the artists would be what we wanted. Arriving on time and being organised, they were very professional. We’d be unlikely to re-book the same act as each event is different, however I would thoroughly recommend the Carnival Dancers to others looking to bring a party atmosphere and flavour of Rio to their event. Really high impact performance and completely professional. Thank you!” 



E. B. Evans - NEC Wheelchair Tennis Master

“I loved it! The spectators really enjoyed the on-court entertainment and it really boasted the overall atmosphere and added some fun and laughter to our finals' day. As we were trying to incorporate the 'Rio' theme for the Paralympics next year having the Samba band at the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters worked really well. The band were incredibly professional and did everything we asked for without any fuss. We are now looking at using them again for our Major Events next year.”



J. Martin – Scottish Council

“Thanks again for all your help and your input to the night.” 



Teenage Cancer Trust

“The dancers were fantastic. We had many compliments regarding their performance with many saying they were the star act!”

“I wish to say a very BIG thank you for your fantastic Latin dancers at our party at Studio Valbonne last Thursday eve. What a fantastic addition to our party they were amazing!” 



A. Cowen - Local Government Association

"Your performances were great and it was demonstrated on the night how our delegates really enjoyed themselves. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to colleagues."



L. Suter – DSA Event Conference

“You were amazing. We really didn’t need a disco, you kept everyone on their feet all night. I have fed back to Martin what a fantastic act you are. I will be telling all my fellow agents that I know to book you. SO pleased and hope to work with you again. Regards”



Judith – The Royal College of Surgeon of England“

I would like to tell you that the dancers were 1st class, they were extremely helpful, easy going and friendly.  Everyone at the event was thrilled with them - as was I because they made the organisation very much easier.”



A. Hyde - Tony Adley Golf Classic 

“I organise the Tony Hadley Golf Classic in support of Action Medical Research and every year we have a theme - this year it was Flying Down to Rio and needed a Brazilian Band. We hired Tropicalia and they were just fantastic from the way the girls were dressed greeting our guests, the background soft music during the Champagne reception to the evening show that was unbelievably good. The costumes were amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend Tropicalia for any event and will certainly be looking to use them again in the future should we require a Brazilian show again. The band was a pleasure to deal with and Leo was exceptional in his details prior to the event.”



K. Watanabe – Nikon – UK

“We booked Tropicalia for our company Christmas party and our theme was Brazil in anticipation of the FIFA World Cup 2014 and the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro 2016. Our guests got straight into the party mood as they were welcomed by the beautiful and colourful dancers for photo shooting. The show, dance and capoeira performances were fantastic and people definitely enjoyed it. A special thanks to Leo and the all crew as they came early to the venue to get ready in time, which was much appreciated. If you think about Brazilian themed event I cannot think about anybody else."

Mai C. - Sojitz Europe plc.

“We had a fantastic night, a huge thanks to the Dancers. Everyone enjoyed their incredible performance and many of people who are normally dance shy did go to the stage and enjoyed the dance with them. We definitely recommend your dancers to friends and colleges.”


London Olympics 2012 - Committee 

"We contracted Tropicalia to perform their Brazilian Show as a prelude to the live screen broadcasting the closing ceremony of London 2012. The show was full of colour, music and dance. Leading up to the event contact was maintained through their management, who dealt with any issue in an outstanding professional manner. I would strongly recommend this show to any organisation wishing to capture the electric atmosphere of Brazil and its Olympic venue - Rio de Janeiro"
