Ladies and gentlemen, put on your dancing shoes because the hottest Brazilian sounds coming out of the region, Chegadão, will bring a hip-shaking samba-funk straight to the dance floor with some steamy rhythm and serious funk. Brent Rose and Scott Myers (New Orleans), Eduardo Tozzatto (Rio de Janeiro), Tedo Oliveira (Salvador Bahia), and Fernando Lim (Brazil) bring an authentic vibe. 

Grammy Award-winning multi-instrumentalist Brent Rose began his career traveling across the country with the U.S. Marine Corps Band. Since 1994, Brent has been a staple on the New Orleans music scene and is a widely sought-after performer and studio musician. In addition to playing with the 2020 Grammy Award-winning New Orleans Nightcrawlers and his own Latin group Muévelo, Rose's professional career has included performing, recording, and touring stints with Quintology, Galactic, Nicholas Payton, Chegadao, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, The New Orleans Flavor Kings, Adonis Rose, The New World Funk Ensemble, Joe Krown, Stanton Moore, Charlie Hunter, Skerik, Chévere, Have Soul Will Travel, Alexey Marti and Urban Minds, the Naked Orchestra, and many others. 

Food is available for purchase from Big Boyz BBQ. Brazilians know their meat, and so does Rodney!  According to Dangermond, owner Rodney Beals has never met a stranger, and his “butt-master” barbecue is in Beals’ blood — he’s been at the grill since he was 11 years old. He first started serving the masses at his annual barbecue every spring at New Orleans’ famed City Park. Though his offerings started small, as these things often do, with just family and friends, over time, word got out about Beals’ tasty meats, and soon, big crowds of people were making it a point to attend the event just to get a taste of what “the mayor” was cooking. It was then that Beals knew he was on to something special and lasting, and his passion soon became his purpose.
