Sirius.B / Bio

"Sirius.B is trova italiana, war song, gypsy, middle eastern, quasi-Klezmer-seculare,
with strong Irish-drinking overtones and Zappa madness." -Ricardo Cobo

Sirius.B brings to you the finest Absurdist Gypsy Folk Funk Punk that the world has to offer. Their impressively irreverent, combustible, three-ring circus of sound and high-energy style is difficult to neatly categorize. They play foreign music as well as upbeat and serious originals, with a lyrical style ranging from the quirky to the absurd.

Sirius.B's music is created with an eclectic mix of vocal harmonies and instruments including cello, accordion, violin, marching band & African percussion, charango, flamenco and acoustic guitar, banjo, and melodica.

In the the Mountain XPress's Best of Western North Carolina, Sirius.B has been voted:
#1 Favorite Local Band --- #1 Next Big Thing --- #1 Rock Band --- #1 Experimental Band

“Sirius.B. carries the brewing excitement of something big in the making." -Alli Marshall, Mountain Xpress
