A group of 3 Brazilians, that out of the coincidences that life brings on the daily, luckily found each other back in May of 2017. During the month of June, Huntington Beach was the home for the first show ever performed by the group. After the success and buzz made in the Brazilian community residing in SoCal by the first event, CaliSamba had only one way to go, and it was to become the most followed Brazilian Samba/Pagode band in California.
Currently playing in multiple cities, such as San Diego, Las Vegas, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Santa Ana, Anaheim, Los Angeles, Hollywood, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, San Francisco, and others yet to come, Calisamba has built an impressive following in less than 4 years.
The band currently has 15,530 followers on Instagram, 1k members on its Facebook fan page, and 1.3k subscribed members on YouTube. All of these numbers are constantly improving upwards and Calisamba continues to grow and build a solid fan base in California as well as on the East Coast.
Less than two months ago the band released two singles. The first one called “Atras do Green Card” and the second “Pagode In Vegas”. Both of them are available on Spotify and YouTube, as well as on all other popular music platforms, such as iTunes, Amazon, YouTube music, etc.
Both songs have video clips on YouTube that can be watched by going to Calisamba’s channel. With less than two months of releasing the videos, YouTube views have accumulated to be roughly 40k, for all videos combined, but the most impressive number is on Facebook, where the band also posted the video clip for the song called “Pagode in Vegas”. The video has a total of 40k views and growing, with over 138,000 people reached since the post was made.
Calisamba’s event attendance range from 300 to 500 people depending on the capacity of the venue. The biggest event produced by Calisamba and a couple of partners held 1000 people, considering the venue could legally allow a maximum of 1200 people. Needless to say, Calisamba will bring as many people as the venue holding the show can handle.
Based on feedbacks that are constantly given from people that frequently come to the shows, regardless of which region they are in, if Calisamba is playing, that is where people will be. Not only Brazilians, but people from all over have been enjoying the music and vibe that the band brings on its shows. Calisamba equals a packed house.
Starting out, the idea of living the road band life was the last thing on our minds. After we did all the local gigs, we realized the only way for us to evolve as a band was to hit the road. Over the next five years, we logged thousands of gigs — with the occasional festival appearance — in cities across the country. Our time on the road proved crucial in shaping our sound.
We’re packing up the gear for an extended U.S. tour in support of our new album. Our set list will prominently feature the new stuff but also dive into favorites from our previous releases. Check out our tour page for when we’ll be playing near you.
