Best Band With a Glockenspiel (2008)

LAS RUBIAS DEL NORTE

Olivier Conan, owner of Park Slope avant-garde music bar Barbés, fronts a fierce band that plays popular Latin music: boleros, cha-chas, and cumbias. The members of LAS RUBIAS DEL NORTE are a bunch of enthusiastic guy musicians from diverse countries and two Caucasian songbirds with classically trained voices. (Hence the name, "the Blondes of the North.") One of the warblers plays a glockenspiel.
