Brass Manazeri is a great band that puts on a great show. I can never hear them too much.

The discovery of the evening was the Osher Marin JCC ... a fantastic venue for live shows. Plenty of space to spread out, dance, play, or read a book at...continued

Description

This Bay Area Balkan Rom (“Gypsy”) style powerhouse brass band cascades through the music of the Serbian, Macedonian, Greek & even Rajasthani Roma traditions, radiating wild improvisations, soulful vocals & hot rhythms. The energy is infectious- toes tap, bodies slam, sweat flies as vital energy radiates from the dance floor.  Brass Menazeri is a shining example of traditional Balkan repertoire combined with new sensibilities, innovative arrangements & original compositions at hands & lips of American devotees. Come dance on a wooden dance floor under the stars!
