Local prog/rock outfit w/ sitar, indebted to Fred Frith, Frank Zappa, and Robert Fripp.
"These guys are incredible, showing off their musical know-how with not only catchy hooks and crunchy bass, but also with funny time signatures and rhythms. It's organized chaos and it sounds so good. Cash Pony doesn't limit themselves in any way. They blend the beautiful spontaneity of jazz with the sizzling attitude of rock, and why not, they throw in some sitar, horns, and sax for an extra dimension to their sound." --Seeds the Hypetree Blog
Ladies and gentlemen, we welcome you to The Mano Cherga Band experience. Growling of the tuba, wailing of the accordion, spring reverb on the semi-hollow, clinking of the glasses, wind from the skirts on the dance floor, sweat running down your back, a smile on your lips and tears in your eyes. That’s what it’s all about for us, and we love to share those moments with you.
We are Jamie, Beodan, Sasha, Nino and Zhenya - tuba, guitar/voice, accordion, drums, bass - US, Serbia, Ukraine, Bosnia, Ukraine - respectively and always respectfully. The recipe is simple: take Balkan Romani, traditional and popular tunes, apply swing, turn up the bass, don’t be shy on the snare and sing like this is the last song you will ever sing.
$6.00 - $8.00
