Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution & Streetlight Manifesto Perform
They may have the word orchestra in its moniker, but the Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution Orchestra is no stuffy, tuxedo-wearing ensemble. Back in the year 2000, the musical collective was born when a sizeable group of college students gathered in a dark basement to record raucous ska, punk, classical and Eastern European-tinged original material and begin their own glorious musical revolution. From their auspicious beginnings rose iconic ska outfit Streetlight Manifesto, and the band's destiny's have been intertwined ever since.
Made of strictly acoustic instruments including cellos, violins, trumpets, saxophones, upright bass and acoustic guitar amongst others, the 40-member BOARO spins things round and play incredible energetic, fast tempo fusion tunes, contrasting the majority of the music composed for said instruments. Paired with Streetlight Manifesto, the multi-talented outfit is sure to induce mass-skanking, well-intentioned moshing and a sweaty rock gig atmosphere, so wear comfy shoes and get ready for a good, old fashioned knees-up!
