Greek Judas & Raya Brass Band

Greek Judas
Greek Judas plays rock versions of songs from the Greek Rebetika tradition. Rebetika is the Greek equivalent of early American blues. They are songs of the Greek underworld and of the refugees fleeing Turkey who filled the Athens slums in the 1920s. It's the music of knife fights, hash dens, prison life & heartbreak. Why I Smoke Cocaine, I'm A Junkie, Two Mangas In Jail, The Smugglers…  We play them loud, on guitars, bass & drums.



Greek Judas is Quince Marcum, vocals, Wade Ripka, guitar and lap steel guitar, Adam Good, guitar, Nick Cudahy, bass, Chris Stromquist, drums.




Raya Brass Band


Since 2008 Raya Brass Band has thrilled audiences with its energetic brand of soul shaking, border defying dance music. Given the way these five musicians electrify clubs, festivals, underground parties, and even subway cars with their riotous performances, it’s no wonder that they’re often mistaken for a band twice the size. The members of the band all bring their unique voices to the group, creating a sound informed as much by their love for the fierce and seductive music of the Balkans as it is by New Orleans brass bands, punk rock, out jazz, and a host of other international sounds. When they put it all together, this hard working band gets straight to the point, dancing, sweating, and shouting alongside its audience.
