ABEL Contest: Loudest

I decided to rethink my choice for loudest ensemble.  A few weeks ago I went to an Abraham Inc. concert at the Iowa Memorial Union. Abraham Inc. is a giant melting pot of klezmer, jazz, funk, and hip hop music.  Some of the featured musicians are Fred Wesley on trombone, David Krakauer on clarinet, and Socalled on piano, accordian, vocals, and beats. I instantly fell in love with this band, and even though my ears were ringing when I left, it was probably the best concert that I've seen in a long time.  Here's a video of Abraham Inc. to give you a taste of what they are about.  They played all of these songs on their concert in Iowa City.
