What we're about

Dear lovers of Brazilian music and dancing...this group is primarily a calendar of events that lists LIVE MUSIC & DANCE CLASSES in the DMV (and surrounding areas); occasionally we also list DJ parties, etc. Not all events will be "hosted" or organized by someone from this group, but they'll always be interesting, quality events that we highly recommend! We strive to post all events that are going on, even if we ourselves are not able to attend, which is why there isn't always a host or a group of people 'meeting up.'

We want you to always know where to look if you're 'jonesin' for some Brazilian music on any given night. If it's music, it's live, and it's Brazilian - it should be on our calendar! So check back often to see what's happening... We invite all our members to suggest events we may not know about. This group is for you, Brazilian Music Lover!

Small disclaimer: Some events are posted without artist participation, meaning that not every band, teacher, etc, will be aware that their event was listed on this site. So occasionally details change or shows even get cancelled without our knowledge. We apologize in advance for these types of occurrences, but they're often out of our control!
