About the Event

To  understand Bella’s Bartok, imagine what you would get if Salvador Dali  and Toulouse Lautrec were fronting the Moulin Rouge's house band, and  you have the exuberant spectacle that is Bella's Bartok. Described as  "about as much fun as you can have with your pants on" (Dan Wolovick,  Two Way Monologues), this 6-piece powerhouse melds Bohemian Klezmer Punk  with pop sensibilities into an eminently danceable party. The diversity  of musicians that make up Bella's Bartok, combined with their boundless  energy on stage, has been known to break a dancefloor, or two (or  three, but who's counting?). Their sound moves way beyond labels,  pushing the envelope towards the darker side of Eastern European music,  referencing vaudeville and 20th century eclecticism. The Bella's  Bartok line-up includes: Asher Putnam (Vocals and all-around  entertainer), Chris "Fancy" Kerrigan (Guitar, Clarinet, Vocals and  physicist!?!), Dan Niederhauser (Bass and Vocals), Saera Kochanski  (accordion and mandolin) Amory Drennan (Trombone/Banjo and Vocals),  Crisco (Drums/Percussion and Trumpet) and Gershon Rosen (trumpet). The  band has shared the stage with musicians and acts such as Rubblebucket,  Red Baraat, The Indigo Girls, Larry & His Flask, The Suitcase  Junket, Parsonsfield, And the Kids, Kanye, Rough Francis, Beau Sasser’s  Escape Plan, West End Blend, Adam Ezra Group, Meat Puppets, World  Inferno/Friendship Society, Rupa & the April Fishes, Arc Iris,  and many more. With multiple awards under their belts, including  The Valley Advocate's Best Band in the Valley 2014 and The Deli  Magazine's Best of New England (twice!), this eclectic group of guys  have carefully crafted a sound that is part strange and creepy, part pop  gold. With an aura of theatricality, Bella's Bartok shows not only  entertain, but they invite you to partake in the wild party they are  having on stage, to involve yourself in the spectacle. Quite simply put-  this is the band you should never miss, ever.
