Mercury Orkestar is the ultimate party band!
Fusing Middle Eastern rhythms, Gypsy flair, and Germanic precision, Mercury Orkestar brings virtuosic skill to bear on traditional Balkan music as well as disturbingly fun Pop music covers. Their spitfire trumpets, wailing clarinets and booming tubas are guaranteed to make you move.
Mercury Orkestar was formed in 2007 out of a desire to play fun and challenging music in the Balkan and Roma traditions. The band is led by Erik Kofoed and includes some of the best classical, jazz, and pop players in the Atlanta region. When you need something to brighten your day, Mercury Orkestar is there to deliver with fun music and lively performances.
