WORLD INFERNO / FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY

 

“a Brooklyn band that mixes Weimar-style cabaret and roisterous ska-punk“ – New York Times

 

 

Its style merges punk, soul, klezmer and jazz, while its collective membership features horns, piano and guitar. The ensemble has over 40 members, including a former member of Dexys Midnight Runners. About seven to ten members usually perform at a time. The group is led by singer, Jack Terricloth, who has been the only constant member during the group’s history. Terricloth is known for his pointed commentary during shows; his monologues have touched on politics and his transformation from the “old school”. This time around the live show features Pete Hess and Scott Hollingsworth retuning to the band after a 15-year hiatus.
