QLICIOUS – Performer Spotlight – The Rude Mechanical Orchestra


The Rude Mechanical Orchestra is a New York City-based radical marching band. Klezmer, some Balkan and Brazilian notes, plenty of funk, some Latin beats, a little jazz and a Le Tigre cover, all of it served up with a patina of punk. Their mission is to serve the efforts of progressive and radical groups and causes striving to bring joy and inspiration to these communities and to bring new people into radical causes. Internally, they work towards being a safe, welcoming place for all genders and gender identities, ages, races, backgrounds, sexual orientations, disabilities and musical skill levels. Through their musical selections, they pay tribute to the world’s cultures and the revolutionary role music has played throughout history.
