Marsala brings cultural banquet to Roxy

October 24, 2008

This is the time of year when we are all looking to kick up our heels. What better way to do it than to spend an unforgettable night of music and dance listening to the sensational sounds of Marsala at The Roxy?

If you enjoyed Monsieur Camembert, you’ll love Marsala who are set to deliver a performance that is every bit as good as the band who blew the roof off The Roxy last year with their sensational show.

Like Monsieur Camembert, Marsala are renowned for their intoxicating blend of extraordinary energy and their wonderful sense of humour.

More than a band, Marsala is an institution of highly skilled musicians from around the world.

The Roxy is extremely proud to present Marsala live on stage on Saturday November 15 at 7:30pm.

Music is the international language. It is a place where we all understand each other, a place where emotions are shared without explanation.

Marsala perform gutsy, emotive and irresistibly danceable music played with fiery vivacity. The music they deliver sparkles with originality, sensuality and flair.

Based in Sydney, the six-piece band includes frontman Jose Zarb on rhythm guitar and vocals, Vladimir Khusid on trumpet, Lupco Stojcevski on saxophone, Gino Pengue on guitar, Jess Ciampa on bass and vocals and Rodrigo Galvai on drums and percussion.

Vladimir Khusid is a renowned musician. Born in Baku, Azerbaijan, Vladimir worked as a professional musician in the former Soviet Republic before emigrating to Australia in 1980.

Since then he has worked with many great line ups including Batuka, The Sunny Boys and The All Nighters. He is a true virtuoso.

Lupco Stojcevski has been studying traditional Balkan music with his father Blagoja Stojcevski since early childhood and is already recognised as one of the greats in his genre.  He has been playing professionally since 1998.

Marsala create a cultural banquet that embraces everything from tangos, gypsy music, Macedonian love songs, Spanish rumbas and swing in between.

Don’t miss this incredible show full of passion, madness and dancing that embraces the best world music from around the globe.

Cabaret tables will be available for $35 per person, with adult tickets for theatre seats available for $27.50 and concession $22.50. BYO drinks and nibbles.

Bookings can be made at the Bingara Tourist Information Centre by telephoning 6724 0066.
