Explosive and Eclectic “Molotov Jukebox”
September 2018 UK tour
“The band truly produces a sound which is unique to the ever-eclectic music industry”. Daniel Willis – Quay News.
The world-renowned party purveyors of contemporary world music Molotov Jukebox, are heading out on tour in September 2018 for their 10th Anniversary Tour.
Internationally acclaimed actress Natalia Tena (Natalia who starred in the Harry Potter Film series as Nymphadora Tonks and in Game of Thrones as Osha), fronts the band with her infectious and sultry lead vocals.
Molotov Jukebox’s music has been described as explosive and eclectic. The band started out as a 2 piece with Natalia playing accordion and her partner Sam playing Balkan fiddle. They became a 6 piece with the addition of trumpet, bass, drums and guitar, playing anything from Balkan/Eastern European music, to Tropical Gypsy. The band’s sound is also influenced by the music in countries they are touring.
Having traversed the globe with their headline performances while racking up hundreds of festival appearances, Molotov Jukebox are a band of true universal appeal and are celebrating their 10th year of global touring this year. They have sold out shows in Mexico, Brazil and Spain to name a few.
With their album title Tropical Gypsy giving name to their unique genre, Molotov Jukebox prove again and again that dancing has no borders with their bi-lingual fiesta floor fillers.
Luke Pritchard of The Kooks, co-wrote tracks on Tropical Gypsy.
“Molotov Jukebox came to Bristol to party, and party they did”. Conal Dougan (The Fix Magazine).
“I had high expectations and, thankfully, MJ meet ’em with a cracking set of ska-tinged, salsa-inflected tropicalia. This is a crowd pleasing set that induces some of the hardest, most carefree dancing I’ve seen at a gig in Norwich. If the government really wants to tackle obesity, they’d be better off scrapping the sugar tax and making it compulsory to see Molotov Jukebox”. Pavlis (Outlineonoutline.co.uk).
Support for this tour is Huw Eddy and The Carnival.
Igniting in the south west cider guzzling country side and nabbing a bunch of rowdy northerners on the way, ‘Huw Eddy & The Carnival’ were born in Leeds. Pedalling sound waves with a gob stopping core of Indie Folk yet generous lashings of Rock and Roll and blues influences they bring you a show that has audiences stamping their hoofs and slapping their hands in uncontrollable merriment;
‘They deliver catchy, punchy, uptempo songs that get people off their feet. They have a real “groove” about them and Huw Eddy has an outstanding voice’ (The Very Thing)
Having just released their debut EP ‘Goodbye Kinderland’ the carnival are rolling out across the UK and Europe to deliver their pulsating parade to the masses;
‘‘Goodbye Kinderland’ is more soulful and nicely two-toned country punk than anything else’ (Unpeeled)
