Monica can perform in a number of different formats , just a few of which include:
Monica & the Moochers wowed audiences in the early 90’s by featuring some of the best young jazz musicians in the country, coupled with stinging arrangements and the sultry, sassy, Monica out front.
Monica and the Moochers are still doing what they do best. An 8 piece band, they guarantee to bring any event to life with their infectious blend of forties and fifties swing with a little bit of Latin thrown in. Great for larger gatherings of 100 plus people, just make sure you’ve got a dance floor ready.
Be completely blown away by the explosive sounds of the 16 piece“Mucho Mambo” orchestra fronted by Monica Trapaga.
Boasting Sydney’s best known jazz and Latin musicians, “Mucho Mambo” transports the audience back to the big, bold and brassy sounds of the 40’s, 50’s & 60’s Latin New York.
Featuring the music of the cream of the Latin Ladies of those eras, Monica performs classics from the likes of Rosemary Clooney, Celia Cruz, La Lupe, Abbey Lane, Selina Gonzales, OmaraPortuonda and many more.
This unique experience showcases the golden era of the Latin and Jazz genres with a full Latin line up of brass and percussion to get you cha-cha-chaing and mamboing ‘til late into the night
