You have a choice of a few spots to have a drink before or after a show. We like the Huntington Hotel bar and the Fairmont is right there also. Check out the Tonga Room for a tropical experience.

Wow-had no idea what I was headed into. 19-piece musical explosion of talent and uniqueness. Infectious music had the crowd on its feet and dancing EARLY. If they come back - GO! But become familiar with the music first so you know when to sing...continued

Description

International superstar Goran Bregovic leads the musical equivalent of a three-ring circus, a dizzying Balkan spectacle that vibrates with life. An award-winning film composer (The Time of the Gypsies, Underground, Queen Margot) and charismatic rock musician, the Sarajevo-born Bregovic presents his kaleidoscopic Wedding and Funeral Orchestra on his first U.S. tour. The 20-piece ensemble includes a Serbian gypsy brass band, classical strings and multiple vocalists. While rooted in the Southern Balkans, Bregovic is a man of the world and his music reflects his cosmopolitan identity, drawing on tango, reggae, jazz, funk and more. Don’t miss the exclusive Bay Area appearance of what will no doubt become the talk of the town for months to come.
