About the Show

New Odyssey (3 Guys-30 Instruments) is a cover band from Chicago playing all types of music from across the decades including today’s top hits. These songs are performed on 30 different musical instruments including a pocket trumpet, accordion, sousaphone, melodica, banjo, and bass trumpet. The key to making every performance a memorable experience is a combination of fun, audience interaction, offbeat light humor, attention–to-detail arrangements and an all-age appeal. Your grandparents will have as much fun as your kids!

With more than 6,000 performances to date, band members conduct themselves in a friendly, professional manner both on and off the bandstand.
