A. Aylin – Cyprus
“Bright, colourful, energetic, moving, powerful and emotional. Our wedding day wouldn't have been complete without the pure passion and love we felt from Tropicalia. As a team, they truly make the experience unique and comparable to no other. Tailoring a specific routine and performance based on what we wanted, whilst including songs of our choice and even learning a completely new song to accommodate. I couldn't have wished for a better team, from beginning to end it has been wonderful and I am ever so sad it's over. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an alternative to a typical wedding or event. You cannot go wrong with Tropicalia, they are a team who make colourful dreams come true!”

Maria & San
“I don’t know where to start..We had so much anticipation and excitement before you guys came on stage as we had kept this as a complete surprise to all of our guests who were in the complete dark. Even before we booked we saw the reviews, seen the videos online and we couldn’t have imagined how important and good you were going to be and you truly delivered!!!! It was so excitable as soon as you came on..All the guests were standing up and cheering. You really brought the Carnival atmosphere to our wedding. It was a spectacle! You were so engaging, the dancers were bringing up a lot of our guests to dance with them, they were so tentative across the entire room which was brilliant to see. There were kids included as part of this and the team were so cheery, friendly and happy and that really brought the excitement to an all-time high.That made us – the bride and groom – so ecstatic with joy. We had so many friends and family come up to us to say how brilliant the drummers and dancers were. The team were fantastic and we can’t recommend you enough. It was so fitting to have such as great team like you guys there so THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN!!!!”

On the day they raised the roof and gave the exact desired effect - they really got the party going and everyone LOVED it! It has been the talk of the event since... My husband was blown away by it with the dancers even going as far as to dance to his favourite Brazilian track, personalising the whole thing. I would recommend Tropicalia in a heartbeat and can't thank them for adding a real shot of Samba to our fantastic day. Thank you!”

The entire room was whooping with delight when the girls came down the stairs in their feathers and the energy the band created was incredible. They really set the party alight; the atmosphere was electric and our guests just couldn’t get enough of them. This is an extremely talented band; if you want your party to go off with a bang, book them now, you will not be disappointed.”
Nina & Daniel
“It was one of the best parts of our day. They were thoroughly original and much better than the standard covers bands. Tropicalia Show cater for your entire audience no matter what people's taste or ages or whether they dance or not you will have your entire dance floor filled for the evening. Vanessa was the most incredible singer live - absolutely pitch perfect and was the most incredible dancer also. She came off the stage onto the dance floor and was teaching everyone dance moves. From start to finish they were incredibly efficient, liaising with our other suppliers etc. Incredible value for money and extremely flexible on the night i.e. they go with the flow and adapt to the audience. All of our guests including the venue thought they were amazing.”
Nicola & Brat
“A big thank you for such a great show at our wedding. We couldn't have wished for any better. We had so many great comments from our guests about you guys; 'great original entertainment', 'loved the music and crowd interaction', 'very good choice for a wedding band', 'can I have their details for future events'. The two front girls were lovely and wowed the crowd throughout their performance and the band played a very good mix of songs some familiar with a Latin twist that appealed to all guests. Thanks to upbeat guests and the great entertainment the hotel stated it was one of the best weddings they'd ever seen!”
Jennifer & Martin
“Tropicalia played at our wedding, they were simply fantastic!! From my first contact with Tropicalia, ongoing discussions about arrangements and the actual performance, the band have been a pleasure to work with, very professional, prompt, friendly and flexible. We were running a little bit late on the day and the band took all of this in their stride and still were ready to start on time. The band is great, very tight and play a really good mix of music that has a very wide appeal, the singer was fantastic and the dancers - WOW! Tropicalia is a great band to bring the wow factor to an event and to get everyone having fun and joining in. Our guests have said how much they enjoyed the band and the venue management also really enjoyed the performance. I would have no hesitation in booking them again”
David & Giselli
“I would advise anyone to not think twice, just book Tropicalia Show. They performed at our wedding. The venue was "The Grove", which is as beautiful as it gets and Tropicalia's professionalism and quality matched the venue perfectly. I will definitely use them again when I host parties in the UK. I would mark them as 10 out of 10”
