Tropical Downbeat Orchestra
Funky Soul and Boogie-Dub specialists Tropical Downbeat Orchestra have been lighting up dance floors across the country for two decades. Think funk 45’s with that soul singing sister, winding up her hips with a band of brothers providing the deep fried beats and abstract cuts. A unique blend of musicians, an equally unique sound.
TDO is a fun loving family who share a passion for music. Lead vocalist Margot Pierard lets her voice do the work and her hips do the shaking, at times silky smooth, others raw and commanding. She works the band with her every delivery.
