Mucca Pazza

Mucca Pazza is a marching band that thinks it’s a rock ‘n roll band. The group is a collection of shameless band nerds wielding instruments of incongruous traditions, sometimes in competition, often in cooperation. Many of them played in traditional marching bands in high school, while others wanted to but couldn’t because they played violin or accordion, and no one had yet come up with the amplified helmet. With speakers strapped firmly to their heads, their rambunctious live show has brought them to such acclaimed venues as the Late Show with Conan O’Brien, Lollapalooza, and a fleet of canoes floating down the Chicago River. Their music borrows from many genres, never settling in one place for long, but held together by the band’s unmistakable sound and irresistible energy.
