The Flying Balaliaka Brothers were a joy to work with and brought to our theater and community the true Russian music experience. Their energy level and professional musicianship was top-notch. The crowd loved them and I heard more compliments from this concert than I have from any in my past year here at the the West Plain Civic Center. The band also did a workshop in the afternoon demonstrating their instruments and talking about the music in-depth. They were very accomodating to the audience question. I highly recommend this band for a fun, educational night of Russian flying fingers. Truely a fun time was had by all.
