The Reptile Palace Orchestra is a fascinating experiment in resurrecting East European folk musics. Their combination of ethnic, classical and jazz instrumentation into energetic and dynamic arrangements is a plain invitation to dance. Residents fans will like the weird influx of electronics into some numbers and world-folk music fans will like the fresh, but preserving treatment of traditional melodies. 'Score one for the forces of trad-Finn-dance-folk-punk!' - MN Daily A&E '...sensuous, ambitious, impressive - excellent... You never know what's going to come next.' - Steven Thompson, Madison Newspapers 'Vocalist Anna Purnell is an unaffected Diva, singing everything from Greek and Macedonian traditional tunes to Michael Hurley classics. Their blazing clarinets, violins and percussion can take you as far from Wisconsin as you'd ever wish to go.' - Minneapolis Star Tribune 'Snaking through Macedonian mosh pits, Balkan ballads and gypsy jamborees, Madison's Reptile Palace Orchestra succeeds where others fear to tread.' - John Noyd, Maximum Ink.
