Biography

The Krebsic Orkestar formed in November, 2006 after musical director for the group, Alex Krebs, returned from Valjevo, Serbia where he studied with gypsy musicians. The repetoire of the band consists of lively, danceable, fun gypsy songs traditionally meant for weddings and parties.
Our influences are the great romani brass bands of the Balkan region: Fanfare Ciocarlia, Boban Markovic, Goran Bregovic, and Ekrem Sajdic.
