The Bacchanal Fall season!

We’re excited to back from our summer break, and pleased to announce that we’ll kick off the fall season of the Berkeley Balkan Bacchanal with our first touring act, the Raya Brass band from NYC! They’ll be playing two sets and joining them for their own set will be MWE. Sounds awesome, right?

Raya-Brass-Band-Promo-Shot-June-2013-04

You might catch them wailing mid-span on the Brooklyn Bridge under a full moon. Or making partiers on a Bushwick rooftop dance so hard that the roof bounces. Raya Brass Band bursts with a frenetic joie de vivre that powers the high-energy party. Digging into black-market compilations, Eastern European carnival traditions and their own eclectic musical pasts (New Orleans brass, punk, out jazz), Raya Brass Band has the chops to match their irrational exuberance.

MWE

One zurna, one davul, one saxophone, and two clarinets. MWE always kicks ass at the Bacchanal and you’ll be dancing when the band hits the floor to play in the middle of the dancers. Part Turkish marching band, part belly dance party band, MWE is a force of nature not to be missed!
