"This Boston-area band puts a premium on Mardi Gras-style rhythm…but also pursues a sinuous, writhing counterpoint, in ways that justify the band's name."
—The New York Times

Acclaimed improvisational brass band the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble unleashes a Mardi Gras extravaganza at BAMcafé. Sporting crazily colorful costumes, the ensemble—led by alto saxophonist and flutist Ken Field (also of Birdsongs of the Mesozoic)—mixes the exuberant sounds of a New Orleans street band with the thrilling free jazz experimentation of Sun Ra and Ornette Coleman. The result is a glorious musical mélange guaranteed to get audiences moving.

BAMcafé Live Host: Phillip Andry
BAMcafé Live House DJ: DJ Idlemind “The Appropriate Agent”
