We had the incredible pleasure of experiencing Grupo Azucar's sensational salsa performance at Westgate Arcade last month. From the moment they started, their vibrant energy and passionate music had the entire audience moving to the rhythm. Grupo Azucar's musicianship is exceptional. The tight coordination between the percussion, the brass, and vocals showcased their remarkable chemistry as a band. Their ability to keep the crowd engaged throughout the performance was a testament to their skillful musicianship and stage presence. Grupo Azucar's infectious beats made it impossible to resist joining in on the fun. In conclusion, Grupo Azucar delivered a wonderful performance that left a lasting impression on everyone present. We look forward to the opportunity to see them perform again and highly recommend catching their show if you're a fan of lively, soulful, and rhythmically-charged performances.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.”

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £150.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!”

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £100 for this service to take into account pre-production and rehearsal times.
