Coming all the way from California, Oddjob Ensemble will be sharing their vaudevillian acts with us lucky folks! Join us for a unique performance!
"Hailing from Sonoma County, Oddjob Ensemble performs a myriad of musical styles and collaborates with performance artists in Vaudevillian shows, musical theater, and the avant garde. The Ensemble, led by Kalei Yamanoha, is a trio that will consist of Accordion, Trombone, Banjo, Percussion and the visual wonders of Sierra Camille, clown extraordinaire. Dancing to energizing early jazz numbers, listening to ethereal folk music and stomping to raucus overtures, the crowd will have their ears twisted into a delicious musical pretzel."
"Oddjob Ensemble fuses folk in the tradition of Balkan and klezmer with the sounds of contemporary artists like Tom Waits and the gypsy-jazz of Django Reinhart. The result is a Hans Zimmer-esque romp. This sound is the brainchild of accordionist and composer Kalei Yamanoha" -Tyrell Trimble (Rogue Valley Messenger)
