Event Details

intlromadayweb200_01This evening features Brass Menažeri, and Stevens Family "Gypsy Boys" with guest guitarist Danny Lee Fender. 

Brass Menažeri (pronounced “Menagerie”) is San Francisco’s original & hottest Balkan Romani (“Gypsy”) Brass Band. Our music cascades through Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia, Greece & even Rajasthan with wild rhythms, new sensibilities, innovative arrangements & original compositions, expanding the traditions while we remain rooted within them.Directed by trumpeter & clarinetist Peter Jaques, Brass Menazeri unites the Bay Area’s foremost interpreters & reimaginers of the Balkan traditions.

Gypsy Boys (Paul and George Stevens)have been playing music since they were children. They started performing about ten years ago. And have made a lot of parties an experience that will never be forgotten. They don't just stand there and play. The Guitar player plays guitar and dances at the same time it's a really cool show.
