ORKESTAR ZIRKONIUM and EREV RAV
Orkestar Zirkonium is a mobile, thirteen-member brass-and-drum ensemble that borrows from a variety of musical traditions, composes original music, and kicks out celebratory spectacle in a variety of circumstances.

"It feels a little strange to say, but Balkan brass massive Orkestar Zirkoium may well be my favorite band in Seattle. One couldn't really ask for a better exctatic party band this side of Fela's casket {or the actual Balkans} ~The Stranger, '07

Zirkonium members hail from Circus Contraption, the Infernal Noise Brigade, the Anti-Fascist Marching Band, The Annie Ford Band, Sigourney Reverb, and other groups; our songs draw from Eastern European / Roma brass, klezmer, Bollywood soundtracks, Ethiopian jazz, punk, funk, hiphop, and other musical idioms.

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.

Erev Rav recorded their first full length album Klezmorphic in their home town of Olympia, Washington in 2012. Their live shows have been generating huge energy on dance floors across the Pacific Northwest and 2013 is starting off with tremendous rhytmic momentum.  Their show is not to be missed!
