Dance Your Brass Off!

Who doesn’t love a brass band? The horns, the drums, the crash of the cymbals. In most parts of the world brass bands are THE preferred party music for weddings, festivals, baptisms, and pretty much anything you’d want to throw a party for.

If you’re a fan of brass bands, you know that Balkan brass bands provide some of the best dance music out there. Balkan brass evolved out of the military bands of the Ottoman empire, formed during the First Serbian Uprising in the early part of the 19th century. Brass instruments were used as a way to gather soldiers for battle and when the war ended, the soldiers went home, the music entered everyday life and became the preferred soundtrack for celebrations. There has been a recent resurgence of interest in Balkan brass bands and you can hear elements of the music in modern-day indie rock bands like Beirut and world-dance bands like Balkan Beat Box.

There’s tons of killer events around the country that are bringing New Orleans and Mardi Gras right to your door.

If you’re Catholic, this is your last night to eat rich, fatty foods before Lent, if you’re not, it’s an excuse to party on a Tuesday! And for those that don’t want to deal with the hangover on Wednesday, there’s a bunch of pre-Mardi Gras celebrations going on this weekend including a show tonight in New York featuring CJ Chenier, son of the inventor of Zydeco, Clifton Chenier, and one of the hottest accordion players out there.
