Fiery Gypsy brass, soulful Balkan rhythms, and hip-grinding American funk. Brash and strong as slivovitz, these nine musicians forged a virtuosic brass band in the heart of NYC - melding East European, Mexican and Asian backgrounds with jazz and soul, and developing a reputation for a great party.
(excerpt from SSP!'s Media Info page)

With Latin, Jewish, Gypsy and American roots... SSP! makes new music out of the unplanned results of immigration, proximity and globalization. Pumping a strong Balkan brass sound through the life in New York's outer boroughs. This nine piece band has won fans in Carnegie Hall, Serbian schoolyards, skate punk tours and pasha's palaces! Playing over 300 shows in the past six years and releasing four albums."
