Blending Bjork’s visionary techno pop with the harmonic and improvisational elements of modern jazz, composer/arranger/multi-instrumentalist Travis Sullivan has created a truly unique ensemble that transcends genre and style. Comprised of New York City’s finest jazz musicians, this eighteen-piece ensemble features full horn and rhythm sections as well as vocalist Becca Stevens performing Sullivan’s arrangements that span Bjork’s entire catalogue. Individual members of the Bjorkestra have performed/toured with the likes of The Arcade Fire, Charlie Hunter, Clark Terry, Ray Charles, The Spam Allstars, Jessica Simpson, and the Saturday Night Live Band.

Since their debut in September 2004 at New York City’s Knitting Factory, Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra has performed to packed venues across the Northeast and received extraordinary praise from both fans and the press alike.
