“Vana Mazi’s lineup of tuba, accordion, acoustic guitar and combo drumkit immediately got my attention. I mean, you don’t see that instrumentation every day. At least I don’t. What got my attention even more was the wonderful eastern European/Balkan sounds these folks threw down. Vocally, Vana Mazi seems to hew to an English-never policy. Guitarist and lead vocalist Ian J. Everett not only has a really strong and appealing voice, dude has outstanding diction and authentic-sounding accents in several languages I do not speak. Their repetoire consists of songs that Everett collected during extensive travels fueled in part by a passion to learn music from other cultures. Aces accordionist Amanda Kitchens adds strong harmony vocals, and is a captivating frontline presence. Let’s also note that while everyone in the band has mad skilz, drummer Tim Maher is just absolutely sick. Dude is ill in the best possible sense.”
