The Beat Squad 

The Beat Squad is an all-terrain, all-weather maximum energy booty-funk rescue squad, committed to giving the audience a good time, whatever it takes. This eight-piece percussion group from New Zealand's capital city Wellington plays a dynamic mixture of samba, hip hop, lounge, funk, drum ‘n’ bass, and Afro rhythms. The intoxicating addition of samba dancers to their stage show leaves audiences clamouring for more.

Since The Beat Squad’s return from Hong Kong, where they performed in the Chinese New Year parade with the Empress Stilt Dance Group, they have been working hard to refine their sound and have recently added keyboardist Geoff Bentley to their line-up.
