Bucharest Drinking Team v Erev Rav
The Bucharest Drinking Team started in the winter of 2010 as a one-time pickup team of Balkan musicians from across the Northwest who convened in Seattle for a single event. Both the audience and musicians had such a good time that another round was called for. And another, and another...

Borrowing stylistically from great Balkan brass bands like Fanfare Ciocarlia and Boban Markovic, the team mixes in a liberal shot of Romanian folk music and a penchant for 80s disco from behind the Iron Curtain to bring you a high-proof Eastern Bloc Party, complete with dancing, drinking, and music!


The Pacific Northwest's premiere klezmer orchestra, Erev Rav delivers a kaleidoscope of original compositions and traditional melodies infused with funk, reggae, bee bop, rock, and Latin rhythm. With their soulful and highly energetic performances, and soaring vocals by Jessica Blinn, Erev Rav crafts a memorable musical experience.

Time and again, their fresh rhythms blended with ancient harmonies have audience members dancing until the last note. The phrase, Erev Rav, translates from Hebrew as 'Mixed Multitude'. Historically, this mixed multitude was a multi-ethnic group of rabble-rousers who joined Moses and the Israelites on the 40-year journey from Egypt to spiritual liberation. Nowadays, Erev Rav utilizes the vehicle of klezmer for creative and spiritual inspiration.
