7/20/2006 - Mood Area 52

Michael Roderick founded Eugene's Mood Area 52 in 1998 as a Piazzola inspired neo-tango ensemble. Since then the group has incorporated Eastern European influences, original polyglot vocal material, and Waitsian cabaret tunes. The lineup has changed, but their emphasis on nuanced, nostalgic, and harmonically surprising music has remained consistent. Come catch Mood Area 52 live at CD WORLD for free on July 2oth at 5:30 and celebrate the release of their new release!
