A Balkan Blast! feat. HBBB & the Black Bear Combo

Sponsored by: Whitneyville Cultural Commons

Join us for a Balkan Blast featuring the Harris Brothers’ Balkan Band and the Black Bear Combo! Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 in advance and for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased online at balkan.whitneyville.cc or at the door. Doors open at 7, with music and dancing from 8-11 PM.

The Harris Brothers Balkan Band strives for the authentic link between dancers and musicians: up-close, face-to-face, and personal. They play traditional and contemporary arrangements of Folk and Roma dances and songs, primarily from Serbia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Greece. Tight harmonies, driving rhythm, inventive arrangements - Come dance with the band, not just to the band.

Black Bear Combo is a raucous mutt channeling the common energy between traditional music from eastern Europe and the Balkans, punk rock, and free jazz. Since 2002 they have brought their sound to clubs, basements, festivals, weddings, funerals, parties, and streetcorners across the country.
