KAFANA BALKAN
KAFANA BALKAN
"Best Crazed Gypsy Brass Band Dance Party in SF: Yes, this occasional Kafana Balkan party is pretty much the only crazed Gypsy brass band dance party in town, but that doesn't make it any less special. Where else can you find hundreds of swarthy men with dangling moustaches and pork-pie hats dancing with slinky ladies in diaphanous dresses and hot-pink hair? (Okay, besides a Joanna Newsom show.) Kafana Balkan also offers live, horn-driven mayhem from the likes of Brass Menazeri and Edessa, as well as everything from Balkan hip-hop to crazy Gypsy funk spun by DJ Zeljko." --SF Weekly

Inspector Gadje Brass Band
Inspector Gadje brings a big sound to the beautiful and bumpin’ brass band music of the Balkans. Formed by students of Rom master Rumen "Sali" Shopov, the band draws on talents known to Bay Area audiences from such bands as the Brass Liberation Orchestra, Zoyres Eastern European Wild Ferment, the Lloyd Family Players, Cradle Duende and the Gomorran Social Aid & Pleasure Club. Inspector Gadje is an acoustic dance machine that makes the party move!
DJ Zeljko
