About this Act

Purveyors of Balkan party vibes The Trans-Siberian March Band are a riot of colour and sound, with truly memorable performances so unique that Time Out called them "The Sex Pistols of Balkan Brass". Their high-octane musical miscellany is a mix of Balkan brass bangers, Gypsy and Turkish tunes, up-tempo Russian sing-alongs and even upper-tempo riotous Klezmer.

Highlights from the band's strange and wonderful ten-year history include shows at Glastonbury, The Royal Albert Hall, WOMAD, The Royal Festival Hall, Kensington Palace and more. Highly entertaining, lots of fun and impossible not to dance to, TSMB are the ideal act for weddings, parties and any other kind of celebration.
