Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band
Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band
Formed from the most talented deadbeats and drifters that could be rounded up, this group of raucous and rambunctious musicians will honk, wail, blow, beat, bounce, scream and serenade their way into your hearts. Playing anything that won't break after vigorous use; their instrumentation is a unique blend of brass, winds, violin, accordion, percussion and an eclectic rhythm section.
Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band combines the rich musical history of the circus and the vagabond peoples of Europe with the raw energy of avant-garde jazz and the irreverence and fun of today's Vaudeville & Steampunk for a sound that is somehow familiar yet like no other. Label them anyway you like! Call them Balkan steamfunk, call them avant world fusion, call them experimental big band, call them circus noise! They may be tough to sum up, but it's easy to tell you that they'll show you a good time!
The Van Burens
The Van Burens are a family band of like-minded weirdos who love to make vital and vivid music together. The Official Band of Quincy, MA (the City of Presidents), the VBs are dedicated to the pursuit of fun, energetic shows that move folks to dance, laugh, and feel feelings. These songwriter nerds serve up reggae, funk, and rock music in the tradition of family ensembles like The Wailers, Parliament, and The Band, often with an irreverent take.
