AKSamba had the pleasure of playing for our friends Pirate City Rollers at the Roller Derby finals between Dead Wreckoning and Alpha Beta Slammers. This event was held at the YMCA on July 16 and was sold out days in advance. AKSamba loves Roller Derby!
Feeding off the good vibes and positive energy from the fabulous ‘up for it’ crowd, AKSamba played a short punchy halftime set that included material we have been working on with Mestre Fred from London School of Samba.
Well organized and a great gig to play, thanks to Pirate City Rollers and the Roller Derby crowd. You ROCK! Well done Alpha Beta Slammers, who won the Black Dahlia Cup in the final seconds.
Congratulations to Chris and Margo who made their AKSamba performance debuts and also Mandar for his second only gig. Chris, Margo and Mandar joined the AKSamba fun after attending one of our workshops.
