World wide famous Fanfara Ciocarlia will be back on a USA Tour this summer. The upcoming Fanfare Ciocarlia North America tour, which runs from July 4th until July 27th, and is set to bring the fastest and loudest gypsy brass band from the far far east back to the US and Canada.
It's manager Henry Ernst gave me an exclusive interview with more details about this year's tour.
Why another concert this year in USA?
The answer is very simply: The last North American tour in September 2012 has been a huge success for Fanfare Ciocarlia. After having a break for more than 9 years the band's come back to the US has been celebrated with 5 sold out shows from Pittsburgh, New York City, Durham, Minneapolis to Chicago. Reason enough to think about planning a much larger tour across the entire country. And here we are: 16 shows in the US and 4 shows in Canada in July 2013!
We are very happy to present the heavy monster sound of Romania's brass Legends on main stages of high-profile music festivals like Festival International De Jazz in Montreal, SummerStage at Central Park New York City, Grand Performances in Los Angeles and Stern Groove Festival in San Francisco. But our preference and favorite child are the shows at club stages on which we are very close to the audience. This is a very special feeling for us and all the vibes from the audience reach us promptly on stage. Very very special for us! The more we are happy top announce the show at Martyrs on July 11th and we hope we will perform at full house again.
How was the tour last year in USA?
Also the country has changed enormously in the last decade and it was interesting to see all the visible changes during our long drives along the east coast. All only have great and value memories of our last trip to the US and we are happy being back soon again!
What about the concert tour in Romania this year?
All in all it was a great adventure and we think about repeating and building up a larger Romanian tour next year.
