Bucharest Drinking Team started in the winter of 2010 as a one time party of Balkan musicians who convened in Seattle for a single event. It was such a good time that both the musicians and the audience wanted a repeat performance.
Borrowing stylistically from great balkan brass bands like Fanfare Ciocarlia and Boban Markovic, the Team also adds a liberal dose of Romanian folk music as well as a certain penchant for 80s disco from behind the iron curtain.
We are your Eastern Bloc Party, complete with dancing, drinking, and music!
Hats of to the bands! A special shout out to my friends in the Bucharest Drinking Team! You were wonderful! I was thoroughly entertained! Very fun show!! - John Morovich; Director Seattle Junior Tamburitzans
