Fanfare Ciocarlia, Chervona, DJ Global Ruckus
8 pm., Tuesday July 23 | $25. Under 21 permitted with legal guardian.
[BRASS BAND OF GYPSIES] The group has been known to cover everything from Steppenwolf to traditional Balkan tunes to the James Bond theme, but whatever it plays, Fanfare Ciocarlia—the erstwhile wedding band from the Zece Prajini village in northeastern Romania’s Carpathian Mountains—makes it sound utterly unlike anything else. Touring constantly since stealing the show at the celebrated Gypsy Caravan tours a decade ago, the dozen-member brass band has unleashed its raucous Roma party music in more than 1,200 concerts and eight albums over 15 years, winning throngs of fans throughout Europe and beyond. These wild and crazy guys will have you dancing faster than you believed possible. Fortunately, with Portland’s own Eastern European dance band Chervona and DJ Global Ruckus opening, you’ll be warmed up by the time they hit the stage.
