Balkan Beat Boxwith The Brass Messengers
Balkan Beat Box is centered around its two founders: saxophone player Ori Kaplan and drummer/programmer/producer Tamir Muskat. After having been active for over a decade in some of NYC's premier underground bands (including Gogol Bordello, Firewater, Big Lazy, Shotnez), they joined forces with charismatic MC Tomer Yosef and brought together their combined experiences and ideas to create the powerhouse called Balkan Beat Box. Welcome BBB back to The Cedar as they play tracks from their brand new album Blue Eyed Black Boy (out April 27). One of the most energetic bands The Cedar has ever hosted...absolutely not to be missed!
Rounding out the party, openers will be the energetic and irrepressible folks in the The Brass Messengers--music, mayhem, and madness!
Tickets are on sale now from the Cedar Ticketline (612-338-2674 ext 2), Cedar outlets, and online at Ticketweb.
Standing room only.
Please note: this show was originally scheduled for June 4. If you bought tickets for that show, you will be able to use them for this rescheduled date without any changes.
