The Transiberian March Band

The Trans-Siberian March Band

Balkan brass party-starters the Trans-Siberian March Band are a colourful explosion of flamboyant, high-octane performances and musical miscellany - a fearsome blend of brass, reeds, percussion, guitar and vocals. We play riotous Balkan, Gypsy and Turkish tunes, up-tempo Russian drinking songs and even upper-tempo Klezmer, with a hint of hiphop and Latin for good measure.
