SAN FRANCISCO - Aug. 1, 2016 - PRLog -- San Francisco based event and experiential marketing agency, Trendy Lime will be hosting a concert and CD release party of Stary Olsa, a well-known Renaissance band from Belarus, performing for the first time in San Francisco on Friday, August 19th.

The concert called "Medieval Disco" will unveil their 13th album "Medieval Classic Rock". As the band experimented with creating a cover of "One" by Metallica, the song became an overnight Internet sensation, reaching millions of viewers on YouTube.

It is only right that Stary Olsa performs on stage at the Neck of the Woods in San Francisco, a stage that once had the pleasure of having Metallica stand on.

One of the trendiest and most happening venues for live music that hosts one of the best sound systems in San Francisco, this venue was a perfect choice for Stary Olsa's opening concert of their U.S. tour.

On August 19th, come dressed in your Renaissance best and enjoy an evening of medieval splendor from Eastern Europe. From covers of classic hits to dancing to tender ballads to sampling of delicious Belarusian dishes, this will be a night to remember.

To purchase tickets for this unique concert, go to www.staryolsa.eventbrite.com. If you are a media representative interested in covering the event, please contact Liana Burtsava at liana@trendylime.com.

ABOUT STARY OLSA: Belarusian band Stary Olsa (http://staryolsa.com/en/home.html) occupies a unique position at the intersections where past meets present, tradition mingles with innovation, and contemporary creative expression has demanded the cultivation of skills that date back to the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Much like their namesake (a wandering brook in the Mahilou region), Stary Olsa's path has been full of twists and turns, and is also deeply and inextricably linked to the traditional culture, history and music of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania (where Belarus was a significant region of cultural and geopolitical life in the 13th – 18th centuries).

In the late 1990s, Zmicier Sasnoŭski brought together a diverse group of musicians, some classically trained and some also self-taught, who encompass a wide range of professions (several music teachers, a computer programmer, and a professional chef). Their current line-up includes six musicians.

On February 26, 2016, the band launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for the new album by offering a wide range of handcrafted projects and individual performances. They reached their initial goal in one week and then set their sights on a stretch goal to fund a U.S. tour. By mid-March they had reached the goal and were planning their trip.

As they travel to the U.S. in August to kick off their first tour of the states, Stary Olsa's aim is to not only introduce U.S. audiences to the beauty of the Belarusian culture and the richness of its age-old musical traditions, but also show how much it has in common with modern rock classics as they bring living history to the stage!  Band is represented by Cool Hat Records.
