Created by the founders of the "relentlessly inventive" new music presenter Bang on a Can (New York Magazine), Asphalt Orchestra unleashes innovative music from concert halls, rock clubs and jazz basements and takes it to the streets and beyond. The band brings together some of the most exciting rock, jazz and classical players in New York City who The New York Times called "12 top-notch brass and percussion players." "Part parade spectacle, part halftime show and part cutting-edge contemporary music concert.... exhilarating.... The playing was coolly brilliant and infectious. And what a scene! Concert audiences are so conditioned to standing back and giving musicians room that it took a while for people here to realize that they were being invited to come close and join in. When the performance ended, people would not stop applauding and waving." - Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times
