The perfect band for creating a great atmosphere for our wedding!

5 stars - Mamba Rumba are Highly Recommended
booked Mamba Rumba for their Wedding in West Midlands October 2023

“Frankie and Pete were brilliant, they were very communicative and understood our requirements fully. They surpassed all expectations and really got the crowd going, providing a great, fun and lively atmosphere during our wedding drinks reception. The children (and some adults!) were fully engaged, using shakers and playing with the band, it was lovely to watch. The music didn't overwhelm the venue and people were still able to chat over the music. We received numerous compliments from guests regarding the band and they were the perfect addition to our special day. 100% recommend....thanks Mamba Rumba! :)”

Thankyou for your fantastic music, and for the great memories!

5 stars - Mamba Rumba are Highly Recommended
booked Mamba Rumba for their event in London November 2022

“Mamba Rumba were fabulous. Created an amazing atmosphere that we were dancing to. I don’t know how they do it as there was just the two of them and the sound was brilliant. A Spanish guest also said how wonderful they were. They adapted to our schedule which changed owing to a little problem in the kitchen! No problem for them they seamlessly carried on and finished the party on a perfect note.”

Full Biography

Latin & Salsa Duo Profile;
In demand at home and abroad with a growing reputation for serving up quality vibrant music at all kinds of events, Mamba Rumba bring with them upbeat rhythms from Cuba and all around Latin America, the Caribbean and Brazil. They also bring plenty of instruments – guitar, sax, clarinet, flute, banjo, tres (Cuban guitar), cavaquinho (Brazilian samba ukulele), percussion and two voices - combining all this to create a joyously rootsy sound of their own.

Over the last few years they’ve performed in ten European countries. UK festival appearances have taken them from Shetland to Jersey with many more shows in between.

Jazz Duo Profile;
Two excellent musicians and singers, Mamba Rumba create a spirited and entertaining Jazz sound right across the spectrum from the hot & swingin’ stuff to the mellow and laid-back end of the scale. Pete & Frankie also spice up their jazzy mix with tasty Latino rhythms & styles such as mambo, calypso, chacha, bossa nova and rumba.

Alongside their classic duo sound of guitar, sax and vocals, these two versatile players keep the sound fresh & spontaneous by adding clarinet, flute, banjo, Latin American instruments and percussion, bringing something new and unique to complement their treatment of the classic jazz standards and sounds - the influences of greats such as Ellington, Getz, Jobim, Django Reinhardt and Cole Porter can be heard alongside the Buena Vista Social Club, Perez Prado, Compay Segundo and others.

Particularly popular at weddings (either as a reception/background slot to set a great mood, or later for dancing - see the videos!- and at parties because they're so versatile, lively and accessible across age ranges and tastes with a wide repertoire. They also have plenty of experience of playing corporate events as well.

 A glance through their customer reviews will make it clear just how highly recommended they are.
