Too Much Fun

Studio recordings are all well and good, but the spirit, the energy, the humor and the interaction of the band in the live setting is the best way to enjoy Too Much Fun. Not only can you count on ‘genuine dance-ability’ from the tunes, there are also the jokes, the quizzes , the tributes and general good-natured goofiness that sometimes emanates from the stage. Come out and see for yourself!

Griffin House @ Cat's Cradle
Jun 7 all-day

Griffin House didn’t begin playing guitar and writing songs until he was 18. The athletically gifted House shocked his family by turning down a sports scholarship to focus on music. After graduating, he moved to Nashville, started doing solo gigs and, within months, was headlining and touring with the likes of John Mellencamp and the Cranberries. Attracting the attention of major labels, he signed with Vancouver label Nettwerk and released ‘Lost and Found’.
His intelligent, heart-felt lyrics and melodies have made such songs as ‘The Guy Who Says Goodbye to You Is Out of His Mind’ and ‘Better Than Love’ radio mainstays. House released his 8th album ‘Balls’ in 2013, garnering even more commercial and critical acclaim.
Last year House released ‘So On and So Forth’ – a collection of original tunes that are considered some of his best yet and sure to please both old and new fans.

Banda Magda @ Beyu Caffe @ Beyu Caffe
Jun 16 @ 7:00 pm

Led by Greek-born singer, accordionist, film scorer and composer Magda Giannikou, Banda Magda moves from baiao to jazz manouche, from Greek dance rhythms to samba beats. Their songs, sung in French (with forays into six other languages), hearken back to the golden age of Brazilian bossa, the best of cinematic arranging and the lush chic of vintage French pop all while drawing on the band’s global background. Trained in film scoring at Berklee College of Music, Giannikou’s film music finesse has won her awards and caught the attention of everyone from Kronos Quartet to Louis CK (she sang a duet with CK for the comedian’s TV show).

Live, Banda Magda bursts with humor and quirky sensibility, powered by a unflagging energy. The New York-based group unites an Esquivel-loving vibes player from Japan; an Argentinean jazz guitarist, a Nagasaki-born percussionist with contemporary classical cred; a hand drummer with every South American rhythm at his fingertips; and a rock-solid Greek multi-instrumentalist/bassist, all led by the sweet-voiced Giannikou. Together, these close musical friends turn Giannikou’s songs into engaging romps that have won them a spot with Carnegie Hall Musical Explorers Series, as well discerning venues like Joe’s Pub, Celebrate Brooklyn, Millenium Stage-Kennedy Center, The Jefferson Center and more.
