Description:

The New York Times describes the Asphalt Orchestra as “an iconoclastic 12-piece marching band … part parade spectacle, part halftime show, part cutting-edge contemporary music concert.” The group’s repertoire ranges from pop maven Björk to jazz legend Charles Mingus, from Swedish metal band Meshuggah to commissions by David Byrne (Talking Heads), Annie Clark (St. Vincent), and Tyondai Braxton (formerly of Battles). In the words of the Philadelphia Inquirer, “Not your mother’s marching band”—and not to be missed!
