Over A Cardboard Sea is a 9-piece nostalgia act from Portland, Maine that plays American popular song from the golden age of Tin Pan Alley (1890-1939). Comic songs, novelty tunes, and tear-jerkers from the era of wax cylinder recording come to life when this ukulele-led line-up takes the stage! It’s a wow! It’s gigantic! It’s a real humdinger! Four-part harmonies, musical saws and bad jokes make this group of ragtime rascals a must-see! They know show business from A to triple Z, and it shows! Just take a look at the Fabulous Burd Duo: a brother/sister act with harmonizing hand-farts!
Cirkestra is the group that started as a circus pit band and stayed together. The group has created 4 original scores for circus.
