Sorry about the last minute notice!!! I know this concert is only two days away, but this band is “all the rage” in New York City and I wanted to give you an opportunity to hear them if  your Wednesday night just so happens to still be open at this point. Forro In The Dark  is currently considered one of the very best dance bands in all of the Big Apple, consistently drawing in huge crowds every week at their regular gig at Nublu in Greenwich Village.

This wildly popular party band is sporting their very own contemporary version of a well established rural northeastern Brazilian genre called forro, which actually refers to a social gathering designed to encourage lots of dancing among its attendees. What helps to make Forro In The Dark’s sound so unique and intriguing is its multi-faceted character. Combine funk, dub, indie, rock, jazz, country Western and swing with Afro-Caribbean rhythms and you have very energetic, highly danceable music guaranteed to keep the crowd on its feet. So come join Brazilian-Americans Mauro Refosco on zabuma drum and vocals, Davi Vieira on percussion and vocals, Guilherme Monteiro on guitar and vocals, and Jorge Continentino on pifano, flute, sax, and vocals and see if you can sit still- I bet not!

Also appearing at the museum on Wednesday evenings this summer will be Chiwonisa (7/21) and Frank London’s Klezmer Brass All-Stars (8/4). Visit their web page for more specific concert info.
