Blast the Horns

For this New Sounds program, listen to the blistering horns of party bands from the world over.  There’s Afro-pop from veteran of Ghanaian highlife Ebo Taylor and his German band, featuring the godfather of Afro-beat drumming, Tony Allen.  Hopefully we'll hear something from the marching band madness that is the Chicago-based outfit Mucca Pazza (P.S. - you HAVE to check their outfits when they perform!), Frank London's Klezmer Brass All-Stars, some Ethiojazz, and maybe something from Lester Bowie’s Brass Fantasy.

Party Band Invasion

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.

Thursday, November 03, 2011

Mucca Pazza, the rollicking, high-energy 30-piece group from Chicago, plays the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center for free on Thursday night. Download "Bump" here, which has a Balkan folksy flavor to it.

Party Band Invasion

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.
