PANDEMONYUM NOYZ

Pandemonyum Noyz is an octet of professional musicians based in Los Angeles. They play many styles of music including classical, jazz, and contemporary on brass and woodwind instruments. They also incorporate physical comedy and singing to their acts. Their music is presented with technical grace and accuracy, along with sound doses of humor and spiffy choreography. A central goal of the group is to create unique musical experiences that go beyond playing notes off the pages. Theatrical story-telling and skits often set up the songs that follow, which gives new context and fresh interpretations to their audiences.
