Brazilian 2wins

Sunday, Sep 3
The Originals
5PM

The Brazilian 2wins are a stretch to understand without experiencing them LIVE. The violinist, Walter Caldas, sounds like Lindsey Sterling had a music baby with Carlos Santana. His vocals are as unique as a folk singer, yet strong like a pop star. His Twin, Wagner Caldas, drives the group’s energy with an electric ukulele while hyping the crowds and the band alike. The bassist, Riley Scheetz, is a strong presence on stage and in speaker, comparable to Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers with infectious grooves like Michael Jackson. RaQwon Reed sits on the throne, feeding the band with a tight  Gospel-Pop pocket and ramps the music higher with well placed fills
