The Rubber Duck Orchestra with its line up of 7 barmy, brassy, stomping, dancing musicians will make the floor bounce and walls sweat as they weave Balkan, Roma, Klezmer and Swing into an unabashed frenetic vibe! Resounding with admiration for Eastern European styles and vitality they will fill your ears with Balkan Stomp madness with their performances of original music, Roma favourites and the haunting echoes of Armenian and Macedonian Folk melodies.
Drawing upon combined experiences and musical influences, including years spent in Bosnia, Palestine, East Africa, and deepest Manchester, The Rubber Duck Orchestra create music which runs riot between Ukrainian melodies, contemporary Serbian grooves and New Orleans Jazz. They share a love of the ridiculous and their theatrical performances have an affinity with every crowd!
The name dates back to their birth on a Barge on a Mancunian Canal five years ago and since then they have er Duck Beatbox Orchestra. Their new EP ‘The Eternal Chase Begins’ was launched in 2016!
