Event description

Description

The Alex Hand Band is riding the wave of its first full-length album, 2018’s Traders of the Lost Arts, with performances featuring songs from this record as well as an upcoming one. The music is a mix of Romanian, Bulgarian, and Macedonian traditional folk dance tunes with original compositions inspired by years of playing these styles and studying music in Eastern Europe.

FEATURING:
Alex Hand – guitar
Gabe Case – bass
Kevin Gerzevitz – accordion, keys
Isaac Schwartz – drums

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Alex Hand has performed at the Red Poppy with Istanbul Connection, Jessica Fichot, Mahala, as well as his own band. The Alex Hand Band started in 2014 as a Django Reinhardt-style, acoustic jazz/swing quartet and evolved into an electric guitar-led Balkan folk jazz ensemble. After studying folk music in Eastern Europe in 2015, Hand has gathered a group of Bay Area jazz, classical, and Balkan musicians and mobilized a project bringing progressive rock and jazz sensibilities to traditional music, crafted in the chaos of communist regimes, gypsy villages, and community dance.
