VULGARGRAD (Melbourne) + Special Guests Raduga Trio at the Baroque Room, Katoomba Blue Mountains, FRI 5th April 2019

Nomadic Fish & Fusion Boutique Present
VULGARGRAD (Melbourne)
+ Special Guests Raduga Trio (Blue Mtns)
Live in concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel

Fri 5th April 2019
Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 86 Bathurst Rd (Upstairs from ‘The Harp & Fiddle’ Irish Bar)
– NEW ENTRY VIA THE CARRINGTON HOTEL DRIVEWAY –
Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.

Everybody’s favourite Russian criminals make their long-awaited return to Australian stages, launching their much-anticipated new album, “The Odessa Job”. The band has amassed an incredibly dedicated fan-base over the last 14 years, but for those who don’t know, VulgarGrad are a seven-piece band that play music by, for, and about Russian criminals – raw, raucous, and rude (particularly if you understand Russian).

VulgarGrad frontman and infamous Polish ne’er-do-well, Jacek Koman, is the rough diamond of stage and screen, known for his vocals on Roxanne from Baz Lurhmann’s Moulin Rouge and seen in The Great Gatsby.
He has just been released from penal servitude in the chilly film and TV studios of Warsaw, but only on a temporary basis. VulgarGrad are only likely to have a handful of Australian shows in 2019, so make sure you catch them before they get away.

After a tantalisingly lengthy wait (ten years!), the band now has a new album:  “The Odessa Job”, launching this April at the recently refurbished Baroque Room in Katoomba (Friday 5th April), and Camelot Lounge in Marrickville (Saturday 6th April) + Django bar (Sunday 7th April 2019).

The first single from the new album “I Remember”  (“Помню я”) is a psychedelic Soviet prison ode to the memory of dear mama, who always warned us not to hang out with thieves.

Be prepared for a night of gun-slinging, vodka-swilling, foul-mouthed disorder, and watch out for the biggest, most triangular instrument you will ever see, the contrabass balalaika.
Experience drunken songs, inebriated waltzes, manic stomps, hot swing from the Cold War days along with punk classics of the Perestroika era.
Wear a striped top and learn to swear in Russian, and you will dance or the trumpeter will shoot you.

“Raduga”– from Russian meaning rainbow or joyous arch – is an eclectic, energetic and exciting take on a raw gypsy style. Original compositions and arrangements of melodies and songs from around the world on the clarinet, piano accordion, ukulele and Gitano guitar, flavoured with tap dance and singing in Slavic and Roma languages. The trio plays without looping or digital devices – a truly live performance with high audience participation, expressed in dancing, clapping and sing alongs!

ON THE STOOP + Special Guests THE LOST MARIACHIS at the Baroque Room RELAUNCH, Katoomba Blue Mountains, SAT 29th September 2018

ON THE STOOP LIVE IN CONCERT
+ Special Guests THE LOST MARIACHIS
Live in concert at the Baroque Room, Carrington Hotel
RELAUNCH NIGHT following recent refurbishments!

Sat 29th September 2018
Venue: BAROQUE ROOM 86 Bathurst Rd (Upstairs from ‘The Harp & Fiddle’ Irish Bar)
– NEW ENTRY VIA THE CARRINGTON HOTEL DRIVEWAY –
Katoomba, NSW 2780 Blue Mountains.

On The Stoop don’t plan on sticking to the rules. Or expectations. Or the straight path.
Balkan Gypsy, Mariachi, New-Orleans Swing, Hot Jazz, Spaghetti-Western, Cabaret, Film Score, Cumbia, Ska, Punk-Rock and Funk and few other as yet unidentified genres are all represented in this magnificent ensemble. On The Stoop are making a mark with their own style of refreshingly unpredictable music.

On the Stoop are formed by an outstanding group of players who each bring their personal spark to the band. They share members with bands including Waiting For Guinness, Mikelangelo, The Rhythm Hunters, Watussi, Fat Yahoozah, Facemeat, Chronology Arts Ensemble and a host of others.

Recent times have been generous to the band with a bunch of festivals under their belt, some regional touring capped off with performing at the Sydney Opera House.
Their latest LP, ‘Home’, received extensive radio support in Sydney including album of the week on Eastside Radio and airplay on community radio stations 2SER, FBi, ABC Radio National and RRR in Melbourne.

“My new favourite Zappa-flavoured, Spaghetti Western, gypsy-eyed, banjo powered, 1920’s/2040’s, Newtown, Balkan band” – John Hardaker, Words About Music

“I described their self-titled 2016 debut album as “Eastern-European, Tango, Balkan, Spaghetti Western, Gypsy, Vaudeville, Theatre, Blues, Zappa meets Trad Jazz’ and I was not kidding! On listening to their second album Home, I now have to add Mariachi, New-Orleans Swing, Cabaret, Film Score, Mexican Cumbia and Punk Rock. This is ludicrous I hear you proclaim. Well so is On the Stoop and I love them for it. Mariachi and Cumbia feature big time but not in their traditional forms.
On The Stoop bend and break the rules like no other Australian pop group and they do it in great style and with raucous abandon!

One moment they can summon up Frank Zappa in his zaniest moments and then next moment we’re in New Orleans with a second line street jazz band and then off to Mexico with a modern mariachi band. But these wildly varied flights of fancy are always framed in excellent musicianship in the composition, the arrangements and the playing. The horn harmonies are smooth and slick at times and weird and atonal when the song is begging for bent.

Only a group of highly accomplished musicians could keep up with the mercurial Serge Stanley who leads the band on a very wild ride. Dirk Kruithof contributes guitar lines that are sometimes pure spaghetti western and at other times have the angular attack of a musical chain saw. The rhythm section of Tim Bradley on drums and Joe Manton on bass is completely capable of all the myriad grooves that Stanley’s imagination demands. All the horn players are exceptionally good, playing in tight formation at times and in crazed cacophony at others.” – Peter Winkler, Loud Mouth

“This could be eight different bands from eight different corners of the world except it’s more like one fevered collective musical brain firing off ideas like skyrockets. Look, there’s one exploding above you right now” – Bernard Zuel, Music Journalist


On The Stoop come to the Blue Mountains fresh from playing a bunch of regional shows including filling halls in the mid North Coast and electrifying the dance floor at local festivals.

They are excited to be bringing their energetic mix of genres for a super fun night in the newly refurbished Baroque Room with two sets guaranteed to give the new sound system a great work out!

THE BEEZ “Don’t Mention the Wall!” – Live At The Attic, Upstairs Hotel Blue, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sun 26th Apr 2015

THE BEEZ – Don’t Mention The Wall!

The Beez and Fusion Boutique Present: THE BEEZ – Don’t Mention The Wall!

Sunday 26th April 2015

Original Songs, stories, short films and slides from the fall of the Berlin Wall and beyond, with native Berliner Deta Rayner (accordion/voice) and Australian expat and Berlin resident since 1988 Rob Rayner (guitar/voice) This unique show encompasses their experiences, both personal and political, during the Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

From Balkan to Bluegrass, Polka to Punk and Klezmer to Cabaret, this is the unadulterated truth about the dramatic post-Wall banana shortage, East German Country and Western harmonica production and Stasi-assisted sound checks, all from a uniquely German/Australian perspective.

Cabaret sensibilities and trademark soaring harmonies inform Rob and Deta´s performance in a funny and moving account from two musicians unwittingly caught up in one of the most significant events of the 20th century.

Following a successful Australian tour in 2013 (generously supported by the Goethe Institute), this truly unique show is currently being performed in Germany to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

“Don’t Mention the Wall!” will be touring Australia from January to May 2015.

“The Beez were one of the most colourful and entertaining ensembles to ever play for us. By the end of the festival they had quite clearly become the most popular act.” – Illawarra Folk Festival Australia

“They were the hit of our 2007 Cobargo Folk Festival. It was mostly their manic energy and superb musicianship that raised the atmosphere of the Festival to new heights. They packed our main venue to bursting and beyond with dancers flanking the fringes.” – Cobargo Folk Festival Australia

SOLD OUT – THE UNDERSCORE ORKESTRA (Portland, Oregon, USA) Australian Tour at Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sun 22nd Mar 2015

THE UNDERSCORE ORKESTRA (Portland, Oregon, USA) Australia/NZ Tour

Special Guests ‘THE SQUEEZEBOX TRIO’

Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains.

Sun 22nd March 2015, 6:30pm. Doors Open 6pm.

BALKAN, KLEZMER, GYPSY JAZZ & SWING.
With a repertoire consisting of both original and traditional material.

Eclectic and energetic band ‘The Underscore Orkestra’ are based out of Portland Oregon, USA and have been touring the US, Canada, Europe and Central America, Australia and New Zealand for the past 8+ years.

Guaranteed to get you up and moving whether you like to swing dance, Balkan Folk dance, or just go out and shake it!

Their Performance evokes the old world and the new, the eerily haunting air of sounds and movements from the East, with definite roots in the West. Influences are far and wide but range from New Orleans Jazz, to Eastern European Roma and Klezmorim music, Manouche Swing, to Acoustic Metal. They often incorporate live Belly Dance and Circus Arts in their shows.
Syncopated Rhythms and original dance vignettes. Guaranteed to get you up and dancing! It will put the p in your pistol and the zing in your zinger. Guaranteed to boost your bravado and perk your package, tempt your temptress with The Underscore Orkestra. An experience you have to see and hear to believe.

Instrumentation is Violin, Guitar, Accordion, Horns, Clarinet, Bass, Sousaphone Percussion, Harmonica, Piccolo, Ukulele, Bambazoo and Belly Dancing.

The Underscore Orkestra has taken many forms over the years and has travelled far and wide in many ways. Including vegetable oil powered tour bus, planes, trains, boats, autos, hitch hiking. Their favourite way is by bicycle, which they have done numerous times in Europe.

The Underscore Orkestara will be on their 3rd tour of Australia. They have built up a good following from their extensive touring in the past (previous tours included a range of shows over 3 months and also multiple festival appearances at Illawarra Folk Festival, Cobargo Folk Festival, Numeralla Folk Festival as well as Peats Ridge Music Festival and Rainbow Serpent Festival and this year’s Falls Festival in Bryon Bay!)
They will be all up and down the East coast from QLD, NSW, VIC, and back up again.
They are very excited to be returning to play new material written and inspired by their previous Oz adventures.

Their live shows are something to remember for years to come, they are fond of selling many wares, including Underscore Underwear, Uncle Jerry’s Magically Malicious Mustache Wax, CD’s, Neck Ties, Nude Calendars, Music boxes, and Stand up tub Basses.

“The band’s Eastern European sound is sort of a mix between Gypsy rock big guns DeVotchKa and Gogol Bordello. They’ve got the very ethnic sound of the former, and though they play fast, it’s not at the manic punk level of the latter. The phrase ‘foot-stompin’ also is apt, as their original and traditional pieces have a way of making people move” – Reno Retro Mix

“You know a band is good when at the end of their sound check the audience starts clapping” – New Paltz Cultural Collective

“Best Local Album” – KBOO Radio “Amazing!!!” – VPR

The Squeezebox Trio are an amalgamation of piano accordion, violin, two gitane guitars and hell of a lot of Jazz and folk stylings! Thomas Hodson, Michael O’Donnell, Javen Sanchez and Luke Chapman (respectively) form the increasingly inaccurately named ‘THE SQUEEZEBOX TRIO.’ Formed in 2012, this ensemble of vagabond musicians have since brought their energetic live performances and unique musical styling to the Jazz Manouche genre popularised by Django Reinhardt in the 1930’s to several corners of Aus; incorporating influences and a repertoire of European Folk Song, Bossa’s, French Musettes, Jazz favourites, Disney/film classics as well as many originals.
