voted #1 Favorite Local Band 5 years in a row as of this month, Sirius.B celebrates the release of their new album at The Grey Eagle on Saturday 9/9!

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." -Mountain Xpress

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.

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

"Sirius.B is trova italiana, war song, gypsy, middle eastern, quasi-Klezmer-seculare, with strong Irish-drinking overtones and Zappa madness." -Ricardo Cobo
Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands
Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands
"Crystal Bright and the Silver Hands toe a fascinating line, making for either an uncommonly dignified circus sideshow or a melodramatic, gorgeous Eastern European street performance. Think Tori Amos with Tom Waits' sense of humor, or maybe a Tim Burton film with the steampunk quotient maxed. Their recent Muses and Bones is immersive and beguiling, alternating between reckless klezmer and enormous gothic ballads." - Corbie Hill, Independent Weekly

"...a pleasant kind of bonkers" - Fiona Talkington, BBC Radio 3

"Crystal Bright takes music history and her own impressive technique on various instruments and creates a dream-like (sometimes nightmarish) world that conjures and contorts the past more than it continues it. It's got an old-time swing, elements of different strains of European folk, but it also has its own rollicking spectacle, and in the middle of it is the narcotic, dramatic air of Bright's vocals. The entire record is an impressive display of musical acumen, striking melodies, and impressive performance. Performance is the word, because Bright is a performer in the truest sense of the word." - Pop Matters
