ABOUT THE BROOKLYN TO BURGY BALKAN BASH UP

Brooklyn’s Raya Brass Band team up with local heroes Radio Free Earth to take over the Williamsburg Grange at 10 Main Street (Route 9) in Williamsburg, Massachusetts on Friday, June 17, 2011 from 5 to 10 pm.

This special event promises to be a night rich in diverse musical stylings and fun for the whole family. Raya Brass Band does it on the dance floor, mashing up the music of Eastern Europe with American dance grooves. Featuring odd meters, unusual scales and a fine helping of gorgeous Balkan and Romany (Gypsy) melodies played on reeds, trumpet, accordion, tuba and drums, Raya Brass Band brings the East European get-down wherever it goes.

Radio Free Earth, a two-man “band on shuffle,” ignores boundaries to play the good stuff you don’t ordinarily get the chance to hear – “Crossover Music,” as the band calls it – featuring great songs by unknown people, unknown songs by great people, plus the band’s trenchant originals.

At 5pm, with the help of Grasshoppa Artist and dancer Maureen Shea, Radio Free Earth will be throwing one of their patented kids’ dance parties. At 6:30pm Raya Brass Band will offer a Balkan dance instructional, followed by a dance from 7 to 8pm. After that it’s anybody’s guess as RFE and RBB trade sets – and players – for a proper Balkan/American/world hoedown in the Grange Hall. As for the food, it’ll be Macedonian – says Mark Pollard of Bread Euphoria, “Think Greek Turkish, or Turkish Greek, if you prefer.”
