Here are the details for the next three instalments of our Pick&Mix residency at Rich Mix, the first of which is coming up on Weds 15 Oct. Please note that TSMB won’t be playing at this month’s show but we’ll definitely be heading down to hear some of the best music you can hear for free on a Wednesday evening in London, so come and say hi to us! Check out Judessa Jazz here and The Magic City Trio here.

The end of a cracking summer

Great summer of gigs including a couple of main stage festival shows (Camp Bestival, Lounge on the Farm) and a show at the Royal Albert Hall with DJ Yoda. Below is another video what goes down when you put 14 rowdy so-and-soes on stage with a hip-hop DJ.

NEW ALBUM on its way!

Good things come to those who wait…

…and we could not be more excited that there is a second TSMB album now recorded and in production! It’s rare to see all 14 members of the Trans-Siberian March Band in a room together except on nights with a full moon, but here we all are messing with expensive lovely equipment at Air Studios in Hampstead.

 

group shotThe album will be a mix of originals and our own takes on traditional Balkan and Gypsy tunes. Even bigger and better than the last, it’s mostly fast and furious but paces itself with the obligatory latin-flavoured smoochy number, a love medley and a quick blast of the Tetris theme. More brass than you can slide a trombone at comes as standard.. hints of drum&bass and hip-hop thrown in by the percussion section for good measure? Why not.

 

Huge thanks to Fi and Toby at Air Studios and Rob from the band for managing to herd everyone together for long enough to record us, and for all your time and effort in making it sound great. The release date is TBC, but we’ll keep you updated here as well as on Facebook and Twitter (keep your eye out for the odd preview too). You can also still get our first album and our more recent Live at the Union Chapel E.P. on Bandcamp.

Ps. we’re taking a break from our Rich Mix residency this month but we’ll be back in July. Here’s a picture of bass drum-ist and monkey-botherer Fotis leading a thoroughly enjoyable Balkan dance workshop at the May edition!
