PhillyBloco's 20+ members bring their raucous mash-up of Samba, Funk and Reggae to Ardmore Music Hall!

Earth Shaking Rhythms. Boundless Energy. Serious Fun.

PhillyBloco…Get ready to Dance!

PhillyBloco is modeled after the blocos of Rio de Janeiro, with their large percussion sections and harmonic/vocal accompaniment. Our group is comprised of twelve drummers, electric guitar, bass guitar, vocals, horn section, accordion, and Brazilian dancers. The group performs a raucous mash-up of SAMBA, FUNK, REGGAE and more made popular by both Brazilian and non-Brazilian artists including: Olodum, Timbalada, Monobloco, Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder. The one constant in all of our music is a heavy percussive element (12 drummers!) that we use to explore the tremendous range of Brazilian rhythms, applying our own unique creativity and energy to each arrangement.

Our 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 us perform!

DJ JAY ROCKWELL HAS BEEN THE RESIDENT DJ OF BRASIL’S SINCE 1997!

Being a resident DJ is much more than just being able to beatmatch and select great tunes. There’s an art to being the guy who both rocks a crowd properly while still leaving them wanting more. DJ Rockwell’s passion is evident, as he sets the tone & vibe for the night. He becomes the life of the party, and not just behind the DJ both. You’ll find DJ Rockwell dancing and socializing with the crowd and joining the party!
