Tamburica Orkestar Braca!
On this edition of CF, Jerry and Karen are joined in the studio by the Braca Tamburitza Orchestra, billed as “Balkan music at its finest,” which played its first gig on Dec. 5, 2009, at Bronko’s Lounge in Crown Point. They are joined by Rich Krilich of surburban Chicago, Frank Mosca Jr. of Schererville, Rudy Grasha Jr. of Valparaiso, John Gornick of Chicago, and Wally Pravica of Des Plaines, who are here to perform for Lakeshore listeners. Rudy Grasha Jr. of Valparaiso (accordion), and violinist Wally Pravica, of Des Plaines are both being inducted into the Tamburitza Hall of Fame later this month in Phoenix. It’s a BIG deal in the community! Tune in!
