Steven Bernstein's Sexmob has been winning over global citizens of every musical persuasion with its offbeat, virtuosic cover songs for over two decades. Originally formed for a weekly residency at New York’s legendary Knitting Factory, they’ve earned a devoted fan base with boisterous deconstructions of tunes by a shaggy menagerie of pop acts, from Abba and James Brown to Prince and Elvis Presley.
Join us for Sexmob's Creative Alliance debut, as they perform music from their albums devoted to classic soundtracks. Gear up for tunes from Cinema, Circus & Spaghetti: Sexmob Plays Fellini, the band’s revered record focusing on the work of Federico Fellini collaborator Nino Rota, and Sexmob Does Bond, consisting of John Barry’s immortal music for the 007 franchise, as well as a few other classics from other movies we love.
The Grammy-nominated band is led by Steven Bernstein (slide trumpet) with Briggan Krauss (saxophones), Tony Scherr (bass), and Kenny Wollesen (drums).
ABOUT STEVEN BERNSTEIN

He leads the cinematically inspired band Sex Mob, the Millennial Territory Orchestra – an ensemble rooted in the territory bands of the 1920s and 30s, and the Butler-Bernstein Hot 9 devoted to the early jazz of Fats Waller and Jelly Roll Morton.
