Inspector Gadje (San Francisco, CA)
With up to 15 musicians (12 horns and 3 percussionists), San Francisco-based Inspector Gadje brings a big sound to the beautiful and bumpin’ brass band music of the Balkans of south-eastern Europe. Hearing Inspector Gadje is love at first listen. The driving, tight groove of low brass and drums with soaring melodies from trumpets, saxophones, and clarinet incite joy and dance from the very first downbeat. Inspector Gadje ignites the dance floor and makes the party wherever they play, be it clubs (including notable venues such as the Independent, Fox Theater, Ashkenaz, Café du Nord, New Parish, Rickshaw Stop, and Yoshi’s) weddings, parties, and street festivals.
