Gypsy dance night in Nimbin, Lismore
NEWCASTLE'S Baltic Bar Mitzvah is on the road and on the way to Nimbin's Phoenix Rising Café.
The band is a collective of eclectic and raucous musicians on their first-ever tour.
Baltic Bar Mitzvah presents a ruthless fusion of musical genres to reinvigorate the soul: Gypsy, Klezmer, folk and fusion.
Steeped in the traditions of Western cultures, twisted by the globalisation of the contemporary world, then bottled with a label of class, Baltic Bar Mitzvah are a contemporary musical outfit with a sense of old-world familiarity, offering a variety of flavours to entice, baffle and delight.
The band wants Nimbin and Lismore residents to release their inner gypsy: "Join the dance floor to shake your booty and stomp your feet."
The band is formed by Neil Simpson on accordion, Adrian Quinn on clarinet, Hannah Murray on horn, Nick Scott on tuba, Alex Quayle on drums, Tim Evans on drums and Curtis Spiers on guitar.
At the Phoenix Rising Cafe, 2 Blue Knob Road, Nimbin, on Wednesday, February 3, from 6pm. Free gig. Also at the Lismore City Bowling Club on Tuesday, February 2, from 7pm.
