The Café Band players are mainly based with the Orchestra of Opera North and is a unique group inspired by the tradition of live music in Viennese coffee houses at the turn of the nineteenth century. The unusual septet of accordion, strings, clarinet and piano is an exciting new venture bringing a rich variety of sound and texture to popular waltzes, operetta and light classical music; at times a delicate blend, at others more of a double espresso, but always harmonious and engaging.

“One of the finest new ensembles to come from the North of England in many years”
