ALL ARE WELCOME
La Misa Negra is a 9-piece band from Oakland, California that plays a unique blend of 1950’s and 60’s style cumbia and high-energy, Afro-Colombian dance music. Powered by horn and accordion-driven riffs, a fierce rhythm section, and a vintage Colombian sound, La Misa Negra delivers an electrifying performance that explodes with infectious dance grooves and punk rock energy. Since their live debut in the fall of 2011, they have toured extensively throughout California, playing shows and festivals with the likes of Arcade Fire, Ozomatli, Ana Tijoux, Bomba Estereo, El Gran Silencio, Celso Piña, Nortec Collective, La Santa Cecilia, SZA, Jarabe de Palo, Meshell Ndegeocello, and many others. On the strength of their wild and one-of-a-kind shows, La Misa Negra has gained a reputation as one of the most exciting live bands to emerge from the Bay Area in recent years, garnering a diverse fan base that transcends musical, cultural, and generational divides.
“Electric, Sweaty, Bumpin’ Balkan Music”
“Hot Balkan Originals & Tricked Out Traditionals”
“Funky Mediterranean Madness”
Tipsy Oxcart plays electric, sweaty, bumpin’ Balkan music, channeling the spirit of 36 hour weddings to keep the crowds dancing until the sun comes up. Serving up originals and fresh, upbeat arrangements of urban dance tunes, the band deviously infuses the sounds of South-Eastern Europe with elements of funk, rock, and jazz. Dig naughty violin solos, atomic accordion grooves, freak-out clarinet, and the baddest rhythm section this side of the Mediterranean. A party with Tipsy Oxcart is guaranteed to shake the dance floor all night long!
