Episode #2989

Party Band Invasion

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, December 23, 2010

High energy party bands invade this New Sounds program. We'll hear from the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble out of Boston, the MarchFourth Marching Band from Portland, OR, and the Chicago-based party band Mucca Pazza (Mad Cow.) When your numbers are some 15-30 strong, the band can't help but be a rollicking good time wherever they go. Plus, there's some Balkan music by way of Brooklyn and Berlin, along with Cajun-klezmer group The Zydepunks from New Orleans to keep the party stomping. With luck, there's enough space for Orchestre Baobab and Krakatoa as well.
