(HUDSON, N.Y.) – The Pioneer Valley-based Gypsy-punk ensemble Bella’s Bartok brings its fusion of Gypsy swing, Balkan brass, Bohemian punk and pop sensibilities to Club Helsinki Hudson on Friday, February 3, at 9pm.
Bella’s Bartok is a brassy, theatrical six-piece ensemble that melds Gypsy swing, Balkan brass, Bohemian punk with pop sensibilities. Their sound moves way beyond labels, pushing the envelope towards the darker side of Eastern and Central European music, blended with the sounds of vaudeville and the downtown avant-garde. The group will appeal to fans of Beirut, Gogol Bordello, Howard Fishman, and the Klezmatics.
Bella’s Bartok has shared stages with musicians and acts including Rubblebucketburlington9, Red Baraat, Indigo Girls, Larry & His Flask, The Suitcase Junket, Parsonsfield, And the Kids, Kanye, Rough Francis, Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan, West End Blend, Adam Ezra Group, Meat Puppets, World Inferno/Friendship Society, Rupa & the April Fishes, and Arc Iris.
With multiple awards under their belts, including the Valley Advocate’s Best Band in the [Pioneer] Valley 2014 and the Deli Magazine’s Best of New England, this eclectic group of guys have carefully crafted a sound that is part strange and creepy, part pure pop for now people. With an aura of theatricality, Bella’s Bartok shows not only entertain, but they invite listeners to partake in the wild party they are having on stage. In a word: a spectacle.
This program represents Club Helsinki’s commitment to presenting regional, emerging, and rising artists.
