The Royal High Jinx – Gypsy Balkan Swing Dance Party with guests The Footscray Gypsies 

For an Open Studio First!!!
Melbourne musicians, The Royal High Jinx with support from The Footscray Gypsies will be throwing a Gypsy Balkan Dance Party!

The Royal High Jinx write, play and sing music inspired by European traditions, shaded with gypsy jazz and a pinch of classical virtuosity, while sporting a spectacular wardrobe combining dapper suits and burlesque exuberance.
Enjoy a smorgasbord of romantic continental classics and frantic Gypsy Jazz/Klezmer musical treats. Experience a stage of colour with Sarah (Former Violinist of The Woohoo Revue/Bushwackers), Silas (Women In Docs/Bushwackers), Jen (The Great Chefs Of Europe) and Terry (The Fratellini Bros ). These four fine musicians will seduce your soul with their original songs and boisterous instrumentals on violin, guitar, mando, drums, bass and keys. Guaranteed to get your heart grooving and your toes tapping. Sing along and don’t forget to pick up a copy of their brand new full album ‘Wheel Of Poor Choices’ A live show not to be missed!

Footscray Gypsies is a world music community orchestra based in Footscray in the western suburbs of Melbourne. They play klezmer, gypsy and balkan music on fiddles, accordions, guitars, woodwind, brass and percussion with some great songs and dances conducted by Terry Cole.
