Last night, Brass Menazeri, the Balkan Brass band with whom I’ve been playing for the past 10 years, played its final show. We were joined by hundreds of loving fans and collaborators at The New Parish in the Oakland, CA. We played for nearly four hours. There were too many emotional high points to even make sense of it all. I’m filled with a deep gratitude for my fellow bandmates and all the multitudes of deliriously dancing friends we’ve shared moments with over these years.
Here is the DJ set I played in between the two Menazeri sets: 30 minutes of fresh Balkan brass remixes – including sneak peaks of some of tracks which will be released in the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned – I’ll let you know when the individual tracks are available for download.
Although Brass Menazeri will not be performing any more shows, there will be several albums of material of all kinds – pure acoustic, remixes, and hybrid collaborations – all coming straight to an eardrum (or two) near (or in) you!
Until then, maybe this will help tide you over.
