DeVotchKa is a four piece multi-instrumental and vocal ensemble that fuses a variety of musical styles including Romani, Greek, Slavic, Bolero, Mariachi with American punk and folk roots. Originally a backing band for burlesque shows, in their early years DeVotchKa also toured with fetish model Dita von Teese. The quartet is made up of Nick Urata, who sings and plays guitar, piano and trumpet; Tom Hagerman, who plays violin, accordion, and piano; Jeanie Schroder, who sings and plays sousaphone and double bass; and Shawn King, who plays percussion and trumpet. DeVotchKa, along with composer Mychael Danna, composed and performed the majority of the music for the film Little Miss Sunshine and the two were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack in 2006. DeVotchKa's latest studio album, A Mad & Faithful Telling, was released in March 2008.
