The Underscore Orkestra

The Underscore Orkestra

Underscore Orkestra is a Portland OR based band, playing a blend of Balkan, Klezmer, Gypsy Jazz and Swing, with a repertoire consisting of both original and traditional material from fast bulgars and melodious waltzes to odd meters and swinging rhythms. Our instrumentation includes violin, accordion, guitar, banjo, clarinet, horns, flute, harmonica, bass, vocals and percussion. Each of the members comes from various backgrounds and musical disiplines from as far away as Russia and as close as our own North West. The Underscore Orkestra has been performing for the past 5+ years, touring all around the western U.S., Mexico and Guatemala and has been seen from intimate coffee shop setting all the way to huge outdoor festivals
