This was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Absolutely loved it. The Masonic was a nice venue - the air conditioning worked great- good acoustics. The ushers were a little too concerned about people staying in their seats, but after a while of the crowd going nuts, standing and dancing, they gave up!

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
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.
