Miracle Orchestra is gearing up with some new originals and old staples for its first headlining slot in over eight months. This Thursday April 4th, MO will be headlining Harper's Ferry in Allston, MA. Then on April 18th, MO heads to NYC for a stop at the Lion's Den. They're wrapping up their run with a stop at Colby College on April 20.

Way back in the mid-90's the Miracle Orchestra (MO) helped plant the seed that has become the ripe Boston jam scene. Layering abstract sounds over foundational grooves, MO brought us a refreshing mix of bass, drums, sax and guitar. Drawing on a variety of influences ranging from jazz to motown, MO created a spontaneous and eclectic soup at each show for their fans' listening enjoyment.

And then it all vanished. The band announced a hiatus to pursue a series of side projects. You've seen the names around - Mystery Mullet Circus, Kabir, Sphere, Dead Cat Bounce, Dub n'Bass - all musical offspring of the Miracle Orchestra. The MO side projects can be seen in some of Boston's hipper clubs, and will continue to play around town.

But on April 4, the full Miracle Orchestra will return to the stage, bringing the show back to Harper's Ferry in Allston. Who's The Fat Guy? will be opening the evening. For the NYC show, MO will be supporting ulu in a night of jazz funk not to be missed. Make sure you get out to see MO this time around, it may be a while before you have the chance to again.
