Inspector Gadje: A Giant Holiday Balkan Big Brass Band Extravaganza
A holiday celebration of BIG Music, BIG Party, BIG fun, cocktails, food and dancing at the Osher Marin JCC with a powerhouse Balkan brass band
The Kanbar Center & Center for Jewish Peoplehood at the Osher Marin JCC join forces to bring a holiday celebration of BIG Music, BIG Party BIG fun, cocktails, food and dancing to the JCC.
This band is a party in a box. Unique, Talented, Fun and well …. a little loud.
Hearing Inspector Gadje is love at first listen. The driving, right groove of low brass and drums with soaring melodies from trumpets, saxophones, and clarinet incite joy from the very first downbeat.
Inspector Gadje ignites the dance floor and makes the party wherever they play (including MGM Arena, Fox Theater, Palace of Fine Arts, The Independent, Ashkenaz, Café du Nord, The New Parish, Rickshaw Shop and Yoshi’s to name a few).
We invite you to join us for the beautiful and bumpin’ brass band music of the Balkans with Inspector Gadje, a not so quite secret that is about to bust out of the SF dance scene.
Tonight will include room for dancing with a pre-concert Balkan circle dance class and a belling dancing performance, so get ready to party!
