Fanfare Ciocărlia with The Brass Messengers
Twelve-piece brass band from northeastern Romania keep the true spirit of Gypsy music alive! The Gypsies may only speak their local Romany dialect but their music speaks an international language and audiences respond to their fierce Balkan funk by turning concerts into parties.
Our very own troop of globetrotting, party-starting, horn-toting, mayhem-loving livewires The Brass Messengers will open.

How Cedar Seeder works: Music and art patrons like you pledge money to support specific projects. If we are able to raise the required amount by the due date, we charge your credit card*, the project happens, and you receive the gifts for your level of giving. If we don't raise the required amount by the due date, the project doesn't happen and your credit card is not charged. You can pledge by clicking "support this project" and logging in using your facebook account or by creating a username and password. Cedar Seeder is a safe and secure site.
*Your credit card will not be charged unless we receive $3,000 in pledges by September 1st. All tickets will be held at Will Call under the name on your credit card and can be claimed at The Cedar on the night of the show.
