COCEK! BRASS BAND is the brainchild of trumpet player Sam Dechenne. The band performs original music by Dechenne based on the sounds of Eastern European brass bands. They are a 5-piece group (2 trumpets, trombone, tuba and bass drum) that rocks the house on a very regular basis. The band’s members come from internationally touring ensembles like John Brown’s Body and Itzhak Perlman and bring a blend of dance music with stellar improvisation and melodies that evoke crazy dancing, contemplative thoughts and good times. www.cocekbrassband.com
BLACK BEAR COMBO is a raucous mutt channeling the common energy between traditional music from eastern Europe and the Balkans, punk rock, and free jazz. Since 2002 we’ve brought our sound to clubs, basements, festivals, weddings, funerals, parties and street corners across the country. www.blackbearcombo.com
CHARLES MANTIS is a project created by Gerald Bailey featuring musicians from Chicago and throughout the world. Charles Mantis is a rogue sideman who blends trumpet, beats, elements of Electronic, Jazz, Balkan and Dance music into one unique style. The music is an improvised creation of electronic anti-tech soundscape, beats, trumpet and gypsy folk. charlesmantis.bandcamp.com
