The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



PhillyBloco is modeled after the blocos of Rio de Janeiro, with their large percussion sections and harmonic/vocal accompaniment. Our group is comprised of 13 drummers, an electric guitarist, a bass guitarist, and a vocalist. The group performs a diverse repertoire made popular by Brazilian bands such as Olodum, Timbalada, and Monobloco. The one constant in all of our music is a heavy percussive element (14 drummers!) that we use to explore the tremendous range of Brazilian rhythms, applying our own unique creativity and energy to each arrangement. The music is extremely high energy, full of passion and feeling. We want to make people dance, feel good, and give them something to celebrate every time they see/hear us perform!
