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!

From giants to circus midgets

Alturas are a quintet specialising in the performance of contemporary tango music with distinct jazz influences.
Inspired by the music of Argentina, ‘Alturas’ combines influences from classical, latin and tango to create a unique blend of haunting melodies with jazz-inspired solos.

‘Alturas’ have been performing as a group since 2009. The group started as a duo with Gaye Thomas (flute/bandoneon) and Jane Andino (piano). They have over the years grown to become a quintet, performing throughout Eastern Australia. Members also include Inge Courtney-Haentjes (violin/ viola), Greg Gibson (sax/clarinet), and Stan Valacos (Bass). The group have performed twice for the National Argentine Day celebrations in Canberra, at the request of the Argentinean Embassy.

With a constantly expanding repertoire, Alturas push boundaries with unique re-workings of traditional tangos, along with stunning arrangements of Piazzolla, Ziegler, Egozcue and contemporary composers including several tango-inspired original pieces.

“An absolute pleasure to play Alturas. Congratulations on a beautiful sounding album.” – Robbie Buck, The Inside Sleeve, Radio National

“I get a lot of CDs and my ears perked up when I heard yours.” – Lucky Oceans, The Daily Planet, Radio National.

Following on from their debut CD, ‘Café con Tango’, Alturas are currently recording their second CD ‘sin palabras’ which moves further into the genre of jazz and includes works from Venezuela and Brazil as well as many Argentinean classics.
They will be embarking on an album launch tour from May 2015.

Paragon’s Chef David Povelsen spent his first 4 years working at Solitary which saw the restaurant maintain it’s coveted position as a ‘one hatter’ in the Good Food Guide. In 2007 David realised a chef’s dream when Solitary attained 2 hats and was one of only 2 two-hatted restaurants in the state.
We are delighted to be able to include David and his talented culinary skills in these unique experience events at the Historic Paragon Café.
