The Brass Menažeri (pronounced "Menagerie") is the San Francisco Bay Area's Balkan Romani ("Gypsy") powerhouse Brass Band. We cascade through the music of the Serbian, Macedonian, Greek & Rajasthani Roma with wild rhythms, soulful vocals & hot improvisations. The energy is infectious—toes tap, bodies slam, sweat flies as vital energy radiates from the dance floor. The Brass Menažeri is a shining example of traditional Balkan repertoire combined with new sensibilities, innovative arrangements & original compositions at the hands & lips of American devotees.
Brasshopper is a local (Berkeley) young, energetic 7-piece New Orleans brass band, playing modern funk/jazz/soul as well as more traditional brass band music. One of the most entertaining local bands around. Do not miss this!
