Boban i Marko Markovic Orkestar
Half Note Jazz Club |

We think that the best way of introducing the Orkestar to you, is by quoting some international press reviews  written about them:

“Few Eastern European brass bands can match the vitality and innovation of Serbian band Boban i Marko Markovic Orkestar, which is led by trumpet master Boban Markovic and his son Marko. Two generations of a legendary Gypsy family join forces to provide a powerhouse of brass virtuosity and infectious energy that has jumped from village celebrations to the dance floors of the hippest Central European clubs.”- World Music Central, 11 November 09
“Imgagine the rowdiest, fastest rendition of ‘Hava Nagila’ you’ve ever heard, zip it up with wild brass playing that would make a New Orleans marching band stop and stare, and throw in percussion so thunderous it shakes a hall, and then you’ve got an idea why the Orkestar gets a crowd into a frenzy.”
-Boston Herald, 09/2004

“Boban Markovic Orkestar is many things, perhaps most proudly one of the world’s killer wedding bands.”
-San Francisco Chronicle, 09/2004

“With nods to klezmer, jazz, Latin and deep-fried funk injected into the mix, the Boban Markovic Orkestar know where their music’s been but they’re hell-bent on sling-shotting it straight into the future.”
-Global Rhythm

“…a stunning blast of exuberance & virtuosity.”
-New York Times

“Supremely rich, varied & inventiven Serbian brass from a true musical thinker. File under stone cold classic.”
