Ginga – Cultivated in Boulder, Colorado, and composed of some of the best jazz, classical and salsa musicians on the Front Range, Ginga is THE powerhouse Brazilian band in Colorado. They can bring an audience to a quiet purr with a sultry Bossa Nova or blow the roof off the evening with a full-blown Carnaval style samba dance party.

The seven members of the band are Francisco Marques (cavaquinho, bass, percussion, vocals), Greg LaLiberte (flute, saxophones, percussion, vocals), Bill McCrossen (bass), Bill Kopper (acoustic 6 & 7 string guitars, electric guitar, vocals), Raoul Rossiter (drums, percussion, vocals), Carl Dixon (percussion, vocals), and Vincent Gonzalez (percussion, vocals).

Whether it’s the magnetizing pulse of a samba groove, the alluring dancing that accompanies or the sheer joy that is infused at every show, Ginga specializes in bringing people together to have a good time.

At any given Ginga show you might:

  • Hear many different Brazilian musical styles in one night

  • Walk in to find a dance lesson in session and learn your first steps

  • Find the bar serving traditional caipirinhas

  • Meet incredible people and make new friends

You will:

  • Enjoy yourself and leave with a smile on your face

  • Dance until your legs are buzzing or you are dripping with sweat

  • Be back for more!
