Looking for agent for Lemon Bucket Orkestra re summer 2015 tour!

After an incredibly successful tour this past summer (2014) and about to release a new CD in a couple of months it is the Lemon Bucket Orkestra’s goal to spend the summer of 2015 touring Europe. In order to make this viable they plan to remain base themselves in Istanbul for the entire summer and thus eliminate any need to make trans-atlantic flights. I am hoping to build a team of European Agents in order to make this happen and hope that you will be interested in collaborating with me and the group.


I would love to begin talking now. I will be at both WOMEX and Mundial in Montreal and hope that by then we will have an arrangement set up to make this tour a reality.

Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to have an further information or details regarding this plan.


Toronto’s Infamous Balkan-Klezmer-Gypsy-Party-Punk-Super Band

From Toronto to New York, Budapest to Berlin, audiences around the world are hailing the Lemon Bucket Orkestra as folk music revolutionaries. Since their birth four years ago, the band has grown from its initial quartet of buskers to a fifteen-piece guerrilla folk force with an army of grass roots followers and mainstream fans at home and abroad. Those discovering the band for the first time quickly realize that their shows are more than concerts: they’re wild, joyful experiences rarely contained by four walls; they’re celebrations of tradition and culture expressed with an explosive punk spirit; they’re ecstatic street parades that erupt from the collision of nostalgia and imagination.
“Adventurously multicultural…amazing” Wall Street Journal

“Music to shake you by the scruff, in the best possible way.” CBC Music

“If there was a way to bottle the unbridled energy of Lemon Bucket Orkestra’s music and gigs, you’d have to slap a sticker on the contents with the warning,‘Flammable Material!” Toronto Sun

“One of a kind sound…the best party band ever!” Moses Znaimer, founder & CEO, ZoomerMedia

“Toronto’s Lemon Bucket Orkestra delivered an amazingly frenetic, gloriously anarchic and ultimately joyous set of acoustic Slavic weirdness” Bartley Kives, Winnipeg Free Press

The LBO enjoyed worldwide media attention last summer after playing klezmer music on a delayed Air Canada flight en route to a three week tour of Romania– the video garnered 250,000+ YouTube hits and was covered by CNN, New York Times, Fox News, Huffington Post, Jimmy Kimmel, CBC, CTV, The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, and more.

2012 was a monumental year for LBO: they released their debut full-length album “Lume, Lume”(produced by Michael Phillip Wojewoda at Toronto’s Revolution Recording), toured eight countries in Europe and North America, shared stages with the most renowned artists in their genre (Shantel and the Bucovina Club Orke-star, Taraf de Haidouks and Fanfare Ciocarlia, among others), and were featured performers in “Midwinter Night: Sacred and Profane Rituals” at the legendary LaMaMa Theater in New York City. This was nothing short of expected to fans of the band in their hometown of Toronto,who bought up over 4,000 copies of the band’s debut EP “Cheeky” last year, and eagerly follow the band to every corner of urban space: last August, LBO drew a 500 person crowd into the Toronto subway system and took them to cavernous Union Station, where they performed an acoustic set in commemoration of the Eastern Seaboard blackout of 2003.
