I’m going to have a UK tour in November to release my band’s new album. I’ve decided to put together a crowdfunding campaign to help me out with some costs. The tour will happen either way but this would just help me not get in debt.

Innovative, vigorous or intriguing are impressions left in the hearts and minds of some of the delighted listeners who have been charmed by this band’s staggering performances.
Led by Portuguese guitarist Vitor Pereira this quintet has been mentioned as one of the best live contemporary jazz bands in London stunning audiences with their unique and energetic sound marked by interweaving saxophone lines overlaid with full and bold melodic statements.
From the catchy headbanging guitar riffs to more quiet and mesmerising atmospheres they cover a full spectrum of textures unveiling a vast background of musical influences and leading the listener through a very diverse and ‘bumpy’ journey.
With two studio albums and countless performances and radio plays around the UK and Europe they will be on the road to promote the release of their latest work “Somewhere in the middle”.
Vitor Pereira was born in Porto/Portugal where he studied mainly classical music and classical guitar.
His interest in Jazz took him to participate in seminars and private lessons with the likes of Pat Metheny, Jonathan Kreisberg, Gilad Hekselman or Aaron Goldberg to name a few and ultimately led him to London in 2004 to study at the “Middlesex University”.
Living in London since then he is an active name in the UK and Europe playing with names like: James Allsopp, Asaf Sirkis, Josh Arcoleo, Binker Goldings, Marc Demuth, etc…
