Enjoy the wonderful sounds of live Greek Music from Helios Band.
The Helios Band was formed in 2008 by Lefteri Tsacle and Ivan Kabaivanov. The Helios band is one of the most versatile bands in Northern California, playing traditional Rembetika, Laika, Nissiotika, Demotika and Modern Greek music. The outstanding musicianship and vocals of the Helios Band members make each performance a truly special and memorable event.
Helios will be performing throughout the entire event.
