Want to have a memorable night out? I haven’t seen them, but Antal Szalai and his Hungarian Gypsy Band is sure bet.
One of my fondest memories of our trip to Florence, Italy, was standing in one of the piazzas watching a Gypsy band busking. The gypsy music was so contagious and vibrant, the violinist was going off, the cimbalom guy was crazy. I think we were there for a couple of hours before our stomachs said it was time to eat.
I’m hoping that Antal and his band can kick up the same atmosphere and excitement. It seems that Antal Szalai has quite a few dates lined up around Australia, many in smaller venues.

By the way, it seems that he is NOT the same person as Antal Szalai, the classical violinist – http://www.antalszalai.net/
