"An eclectic ensemble made up of Philly’s finest and wildest musicians performing trumpets, saxophones, clarinet, drums, baritone horns, flute, vocals, and sousaphone, the West Philadelphia Orchestra will get you moving with the poignant melodies and the frenetic, propulsive rhythms of Eastern Europe. Enjoy a unique mix of Balkan and klezmer sounds, the powerful rhythms of samba and dancehall, the growling energy of punk rock, the spontaneity of jazz, and, of course, the soul and grit of Philadelphia."

Veveritse Brass Band plays dance music from or inspired by the Romani brass bands of the Balkans. Their diverse musical backgrounds coupled with their deep appreciation and study of Romani musical traditions have birthed invigorating renditions of popular songs as well as their own experimental compositions. In the end, it's a ten piece ensemble made of mostly brass horns and 2 drummers and is known for causing a lot of awe, dancing and fun! sonorous and jagged straightens up, and carries you into the night...dancing, sighing. With two trumpets, a saxophone, four mid-horns, a tuba and two drummers, they are ten deep, creating not a wall of sound, but a loud tapestry. Members of the band also play in other great NYC bands like Romashka, Hungry March Band, Zlatne Uste, The Woes, Ansambl Mastika, and Stagger Back Brass Band....not to mention the infamous and nefarious "Top Secret Attack Band"! Veveritse, with it's theatrical bent, has already scored two different nights of films, played benefits, parties and numerous clubs. They are available for all kinds of occasions....weddings, private parties, afternoon tea, preschool graduations, feline coronations and divorces.
