Octoberfest at the Bohemian Hall in Astoria, Queens - Sunday September 27th, 12.30 PM

MetroFolk debuts at the Bohemian Hall and beergarden in Queens, tomorrow, Sunday, the 27th of September from 12.30. We are playing till 5.30, but other bands will follow, including our good friends the Pajtasi Slovakian Folk Ensemble. This means half a day of unbridled Central-Eastern European dance rhythms that will make you laugh and cry, depending on the amount of beer and Becherovka imbibed.

The Bohemian Hall has been a favorite place of our band's for a long time in our civilian lives, but this is the first time we get to be there officially as musicians. Come out and support us and be ready for Tranylvanian folk mayhem! The Hall has both indoor and outdoor areas and the outdoor tables are covered by a roof (in case the nonsensical thought of not coming enters your mind because of some meteorologist who doesn't know how to party...). Please come out and support us to make this a regular playing opportunity!

The icing on the cake (or the cherry on top, pick your favorite): we are led by Transylvanian gypsy violin master Sandor Ciurcui on this wonderful occasion. Sandor hails from the Transylvanian Plains and has been playing music for almost 50 years as a professional musician. He has toured the globe and has recorded countless albums with Taraful de Soporul de Campie, garnering acclaim all over the Western World. Come see this master of folk music play and get a chance to enjoy this music straight from its source. It does not get much more authentic than this!

Sandor Ciurcui - violin
Aron Szekely - viola
Attila Papp - bass
