Bella’s Bartok featuring This Way to the Egress
The diversity of musicians that make up Bella’s Bartok, combined with their boundless energy on stage, has been known to break a dancefloor, or two (or three, but who’s counting?). Their sound moves way beyond labels, pushing the envelope towards the darker side of Eastern European music, referencing vaudeville and 20th century eclecticism.
This Way to the Egress
Formed in 2008, This Way to the EGRESS is a 6-piece accordion led ensemble hailing from Bethlehem, PA.
Since their start, EGRESS has tried to find a box in which they could fit themselves, however finding a box to fit six members playing accordion’s, tuba’s, electric guitar’s, trombone’s, piano’s, and drum’s would need to be a rather large box. So they move forth doing what they do best, incorporating elements of punk, Balkan, Klezmer, blues, reggae and ragtime with Americana Folk-Rock causing a genre defying sound that P.T. Barnum would be proud of.
