The Benka Boradovsky Bordello Band’s Final Show:
The Polkapocalypse Is Now!
After an epic 27 date ‘Gypsy Fever’ tour around New Zealand over summer, The Benka Boradovsky Bordello Band have announced that they will play one more gig on Saturday 6th March at the Monte Cristo Room in Auckland before calling it quits.
Having spent the last three summers touring NZ, six months based in Berlin, headlining 7 packed out Gypsy Fever events in Auckland and performing at such festivals as Splore, Prana, Parihaka, Jambalaya, AK07 and AK09 their departure will no doubt be lamented by all those who saw them play and danced wildly to their unique fusion of Gypsy/East European music, punk, cabaret and jazz.
After first emerging from an alleyway behind Auckland's Wine Cellar sometime in May of 2006, The Benka Boradovsky Bordello Band released their debut ep on Monkey Records early 2008 and followed it up with their album, Polkapocalypse in May 2009. During this time they produced videos for ‘The Dance of Death’, ‘Polkapocalypse’ and their cover of the Dead Kennedys’ ‘Too Drunk to F**k’, all of which have become cult online favourites. The ep has now sold out and limited copies of the album remain.
Don’t miss your last chance to see New Zealand’s favourite Gypsy band live and experience their outrageously frenetic stage show – you will dance, dance, dance as if your feet were on fire…
