Thursday Night All Stars

Catch this 7-piece rock band that blends world music, jam rock, Iranian music, and jazz stirred up with a LOT of humor! Described by one enthusiastic fan as being "a cross between stadium rock, world music and an elementary school play," the Thursday Night All Stars hails from New York City, shaking up the music scene with their front man, the "Ayatollah Fancy" on the Persian tar. Think of Middle Eastern music meets Jimmy Hendrix and Flight of the Conchords… You’ll find yourself moshing, giggling, and maybe even dancing wildly to these classically trained musicians in costume!

“The band shifts seamlessly from blaxploitation-flick funk riffs to jazz-fusion grooves to Latin montugno piano patterns without breaking a sweat.”
- Jim Allen, freelance music journalist who has contributed to RollingStone.com, VH1.com, Uncut, iTunes, and many others

“The band combines middle-eastern flavored jazz/world music with humor, political commentary and satire that ends up in an amalgamation that is part Frank Zappa and
part Sic F*cks.”
- Mike Little, Brooklyn Rocks
