The Underscore Orkestra

The Underscore Orkestra have been a band since 2007 and have taken on many different incarnations.
They were formed in Portland Oregon USA, now basing out of Cork Ireland. They have played 100+ shows a year, all over the world including USA and North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, SE Asia and Central America.
On this 4th UK tour, 2019 you will see Jorge Kachmari playing Fiddle, Saxophone, Harmonica and Clarinet, as well as Lead Vocals. Brian Leach playing resonator guitar. Jack Egan on Bass and Thomas Hodson on Squeeze box (Accordion) and keys.
Their music lights a fire within you, evoking the haunting sounds of the east with definite influences from the west. Guaranteed to get your toes tapping and your hips shaking! Its certainly danceable but also quite enjoyable to sit back and clap along.
