Rio Novo is an Austin TX based quintet. We play jazz influenced Brazilian music - Bossa Novas and sambas. The sounds are sultry and relaxing - a sensual delight. We play with only enough amplification to be heard - a refreshing change from over-amped pop music!
Our band includes:
Javier Jara, vocals (in Portuguese)
Darin Layne, nylon stringed guitar
Sammy Epstein, saxophones
Adam Reidelbach, drums
Brad Taylor, bass
We are available to play clubs, private parties, and public events. Check out our sound samples and come to hear us live!
