The Brazilionaires music is an exciting blend of pop and Latin with a jazzy feel. This unique Illinois band is fronted by electrifying vocalist Dove Benoit and guitarist “Rico” Wayne Johnson, and features some of the Midwest’s finest musicians. Their original music has received airplay on radio stations across the US and Europe, and can be heard on Internet streaming stations like Pandora and Spotify. The band is known for thrilling and entertaining live shows, and often perform their own Latin versions of rock & pop cover tunes, which is a big pleaser with audiences. The band has wooed crowds this summer with concerts at Navy Pier in Chicago and festivals across the Midwest. They are really looking forward to performing at the Friday Night Familiy Fest in Pekin, where Carlos Bopp, one of the band’s musicians, calls home! You’ll be sure to love this eclectic, fun group!
