Episode #2989

Party Band Invasion

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, January 07, 2012

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.

I first heard 17 Hippies at some showcases in NYC a few years ago and have loved them ever since. A terrific group of musicians. Their female lead singer, Kiki Sauer, sings beautifully in French; "Adieu" is one of my favorites from her.

I'm also partial to Orchestra Baobab.

Great show!
