Get ready to rum-tumble with two of Queenslands craziest bands; Greshka and The Unusual Suspects.
Loosen your suspenders, tighten your shoelaces and get ready to flap your extremities. Greška is a five piece neo-gypsy/klezmer ensemble not unlike a chipotle and cocaine kebab: you’re not sure where it’s from, but it sure knocks you off your tits. A torn canvas of Romanian gypsy dons a filthy smear of western metal, jazz-funk and classical-arrangement.
The Unusual Suspects:
A 25 piece street band – 8 drummers, 6 saxes, 3 trumpets, 2 clarinets, a tenor horn, 2 trombones, a sousaphone, an ipod, a cittern and a Rezouki. Unusual music in unusual times. Balkan, funky dance music for dancing in the streets (or anywhere really).
