Conceived by Marcio Pereira and Scott Myers in 2008, Chegadão blurs the boundaries of genre and nationality, while introducing American music fans to some of the rhythms and sounds of Brazil. Along with original music, you'll hear forró from artists like Luiz Gonzaga and Gilberto Gil, as well as samba, maractú, all with a splash of New Orleans funk. Current and past members of the band include Scott Myers, Eduardo Tozzatto, Brent Rose, Tedo Oliviera, Tommy Sciple, Marcio Pereira and Nick Solnick.
Os Batutas is a term I use loosely to refer to the great musicians who have helped me record my original music and whom regularly appear on my gigs. Amongst them are Brent Rose, Tommy Sciple, Nick Solnick, Peter Varnado, Sam Albright, Eric Lucero, Sasha Masakowski, Gabriel Velasco and many more.
