Come to the Nathan Manilow Theatre in Park Forest to see the astounding Mucca Pazza theater and music performance October 20, and stay at the nearby Best Western Inn & Suites Midway Hotel!
Mucca Pazza combine marching band traditions and street theater spectacle with rock and roll sensibilities, high level of musicianship, and unparalleled eccentric, frenetic visual presence and genre-bending original compositions! They have earned critical praise and a loyal local following while playing at major festivals including Lollapalooza and Lincoln Center’s Out of Doors and collaborating with a range of artists including the Chicago Sinfonietta and Andrew Bird.
Mucca Pazza thinks of itself as a marching band that thinks it is a rock and roll band. It is definitely something you have never seen before. They combine brass, drumming, accordians, cellos and violins and cheerleaders into a spectacle. The group has appeared on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien and the Montreal Jazz Festival.
“Chicago’s Mucca Pazza splits the difference between Balkan gypsy brass bands and American football-game-style halftime marching bands with a brilliantly calculated mondo-bizzaro dementia and liberal amounts of humor.” The Wall Street Journal
