The Primate Fiasco

To a deaf person, they look like a New Orleans street band. To a blind person, they sound like a rave DJ mashing-up house beats with 60′s folk lyrics. To the police, it’s a busy day on the sidewalk. Primate Fiasco started as a street band, bringing a high energy dance party to places you least expect. With accordion, sousaphone (tuba), tenor banjo, percussion, and vocals, they don’t need a stage, electricity, or permission. But when plugged in on stage, they bring just as much heat as any other electronic act. On top of somehow being acoustic EDM (ADM?) , the songs are well crafted and the lyrics are profoundly unique. Most importantly, this is fun. People smile from the first beat to the last smoldering ash of what was previously a dance floor. Following a Grammy-nominated kids album, several conquered jam and electronica fests, and stolen hearts at prestigious folk festivals, the Primate Fiasco audience demographic is as diverse as a New York City street. No one is safe from the Fiasco. You will smile.
