An Oldtone/Dewey Hall Production...
The Cocek! Brass Band will be returning for it's 2nd appearance at Dewey Hall!
A 5-piece ensemble from Boston, MA playing all original compositions. The music is influenced by Eastern-European and New Orleans dance songs, Afrobeat, Klezmer and elements of reggae and Western classical pieces.
CBB sounds are inspired by acts like Fanfare Ciocarlia, Fela Kuti, Miles Davis, Rebirth Brass Band, traditional Balkan songs and chamber brass repertoire. Dance music for those seeking something new and unique, contemplative Old World melodies that hark to a lost era and catchy riffs that will have you singing along and tapping your foot all night long.
In performance spaces ranging from hollowed out warehouses and arts spaces in Boston to the Kennedy Center in D.C., The Burlington Discover Jazz Festival in Vermont, WorldFest in Louisville, KY and the 11th Annual NY Gypsy Music Festival, Cocek! can be found sprinkling their Phrygian magic dust on audience members all over the world. They also put on programs for schools and universities traditional Balkan/Klezmer & New Orleans Jazz music, it's wonderfully beautiful history and it's relation to their original compositions.
