Bang on a Can All-Stars Biography (Wikipedia)

The Bang on a Can All-Stars is an amplified ensemble that was formed in 1992 by parent organization Bang on a Can.

Called "a flexible and expert sextet" by the New York Times, the ensemble was formed as an agile group with a set instrumentation to take on touring and recording projects for Bang on a Can that would not be feasible for the organization's massive "Marathon" concert productions.[citation needed]

They appeared as guest stars in the season 17 episode of Arthur, "Binky's Music Madness", with Evan Ziporyn and Julia Wolfe playing themselves.[citation needed]
