The musicians showcased several Bahamian songs  and ran the gamut from classics like "Funky Nassau" and Angel Reckley's rousing version of "Exuma, the Obeah Man," to Julien "Believe" hits, such as "Goin' Down on Bay."  There were also upbeat pop and Caribbean songs.

The Brick City Band incorporated various musical styles into their set, including rock riffs on the lead guitar, jazz, funk and a number of Bahamian and Caribbean "jams."

The performance ended with the entire team onstage, singing and dancing with cheering new fans.

The Beijing Expo runs from April 30th to September 6th, with about 110 countries and international organizations represented at the event.
