WELCOME to the website of Notis Contoplianos and Kathy Sherman, The Plaka Band. We have been playing Greek music together as a bouzouki – guitar/vocal duet since 1989.
You can find us playing at cafés and restaurants around the San Francisco Bay Area as well as at street festivals and farmer's markets.
With a repertoire of well over 400 Greek songs we can enhance just about any special occasion.
We recently released our first CD of all original Greek songs, "New Songs of Old Athens," which has been receiving favorable acclaim both in the US and in Greece.
Please have a look around our website. We have information about New songs of old Athens including lyrics (in Greek), a brief description about each song (in English) and some fun facts about the meaning of Plaka.
