Mac & Cheez is an acoustic group specializing in traditional and modern village and urban folk music from the southern Balkans.

Their repertoire features music from Macedonia, Serbia, Albania, Bulgaria, Greek, and Turkey and is strongly influenced by Roma and Ottoman cultures and traditions. This music is typically performed for social-cultural occasions such as weddings, holidays and annual village festivals celebrating the seasons.

Tim Allen (saxophone) and Matthew “Max” Fass (accordion)bring an ancient-modern musical synthesis from the regions where East and West overlap and present it in their own style to audiences throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond.
