Bloco Maximo

Bloco Maximo (formed in july 2011) is a new Chicago based percussion group that brings the awesome sound of Brazilian batucada from the Pelourinho and the Sambodromo – combining the traditional sounds of timbal, repique, surdo, caixa & tamborim in a funky, energetic dose of wall-to-wall rhythm.  We are available for private events, club gigs, or educational residencies.

we rehearse every week simply because we want to see each other more often.

we dedicate this group to our teacher dane maxim richeson.

here’s to you dane maxim richeson.
