Three of New York’s most in-demand virtuoso musicians, each with a distinctive voice on his instrument, explore and expand on Parisian musette. They bring this multicultural dancehall music to new places through the highest improvisational communication, emotionally honest performances, and original compositions. Featuring Matt Munisteri (guitar/banjo), Marcus Rojas (tuba), and Will Holshouser (accordion).

"Swings with speed and clarity, sways with mystery and eroticism....Not simply an archeological paean to past masters, this debut recording from Musette Explosion makes the genre relevant to NYC's musical landscape."
-- Elliott Simon, New York City Jazz Record

The last few months... 

Following our west coast tour last fall, we had the pleasure of recording a few tunes with Chaim Tannenbaum (singer / songwriter / multi-instrumentalist / professor of logic) for his forthcoming album on Second Story Records. In January, we played at the lovely Birdland here in NYC.
