Apply to join our band.

Samba Espirito is a not for profit band influenced by Brazilian, African & other world musical styles & put together to give the local community, the opportunity to experience the energy of playing carnival music, and to learn to perform it for others to enjoy.

Interested in Joining Us?

Depending on the drum balance of the band, we do introduce new members periodically.

No experience is required to join the band, but if you you have a good level of fitness/energy,  a great sense of rhythm, positive enthusiasm in buckets, a desire to have lots of funare interested in learning, joining us at weekly rehearsals and performing at events, then you will fit right in & we would love to hear from you!

We rehearse in Halton near Lancaster every Thursday and perform across the North West of England.  Most of our gigs will take place at the weekend and so there is a time commitment for you to consider if you’d like to be a member of the band.  We lend you all the equipment & drums initially, but after 6 months you do need to purchase your own.

Please get in touch by dropping us a line using the contact form on this page or email us: and we will add you to the waiting list.

What our band members say about being part of Samba Espirito…..

Donna “I love Samba Espirito ! Thursday nights are a cross between aerobics,  a comedy club and drumming!  Brilliant people brilliant fun!”

Zoe “I had no previous drumming experience and was very apprehensive before joining. I was made to feel extremely welcome and can now play along without feeling nervous. thank you. x”

Hazel “The decision to join this band is one that I am glad I made! I can’t wait till Thursday evenings come around for good exercise, laughs and plenty of musical learning!”

Helen “I had some experience prior to joining Samba Espirito, having played with numerous Samba bands previously. I have to say this band is a cut above the rest! The practices are fun, well organised, thorough and I’ve really improved as a player! I’ve grown in confidence not just as a drummer but as a person. Thursday nights and my weekends are full of positivity, silliness and best of all drums!! Thank you xx”

“Since joining the group I have never looked forward to Thursday evenings as much! Personally I love the format and the dynamics of the group, I would love to drum for longer but we do have to go to bed sometime.”
