Kalinka, based in the Santa Barbara area, is among the liveliest bands on California’s Central Coast, playing a blend of Jewish klezmer tunes, popular gypsy tunes, vintage jazz, French café music, Fellini film scores, and Eastern European melodies. Their acoustic sound is joyous, sweet, and gutsy. Kalinka’s members include Nicole McKenzie (violin); Fred Nadis (clarinet); Jon Brady (accordion); Ann Chevrefils (bass); and Mark McLaughlin (cardboard box).
This summer only “The Roadtunes Sessions” stretch-limo version airs Tuesdays from 7-10pm.
That’s a lot of fine music to take on down the road feeling good!
