“For a post-show reception for the Guthrie Theater’s 50th Anniversary Gala, we sought a lively, energetic band that would contribute to the festive atmosphere for the evening and Viva Brazil delivered. They struck a balance between keeping our guests on their toes (literally dancing!), and providing a great background vibe for conversation. To top it off, they were fun, enthusiastic, and they kept our goals and interests top of mind. Viva Brazil was a terrific choice.”

"We hold our National Conference at the Minneapolis Convention Center annually. On Saturday evening we hold a formal reception/dinner followed by our Awards program. For our 2011 conference it was decided that we would provide live entertainment for this portion of the event. I had the opportunity to meet and hear the band Viva Brazil a Minneapolis based band led by Altamir Coelho several months before our conference and knew they were the perfect fit for our needs. The band is very professional and have a large repertoire of band options and music selections. We provided them with our event theme and the type of atmosphere they would be performing to. We also told them what our budget was and they came back with a fantastic set of music and fit within our budget. We were very happy with the results and will be considering Viva Brazil for our future events."
