Combining elements of punk, Gypsy music, and Brecht-ian cabaret, Gogol Bordello tell the story of New York's immigrant diaspora through debauchery, humor, and surreal costumes. Leader and singer Eugene Hütz's taste in music was spun out of black market tapes of the Birthday Party and Einstürzande Neubauten in his native Ukraine. After being evacuated to western Ukraine in 1986 following the Chernobyl disaster, Hütz became enamored of the mystical, outsider qualities of Gypsy music.
“…A whirling dervish of rubbery rhythms, bleating horns, and fiddles that rip like Slayer riffs.” – AV Club
“Few punks this side of the Mekons and the Clash make resistance sound as liberating as Gogol Bordello.” – Washington Post
Redefining what it means to be a brass band, Lucky Chops stormed onto the scene in 2015 with the help of millions of viewers around the globe. Together this group of six talented individuals has created a unique sound and energy which has resonated worldwide with viral success, launching a career that is now headed toward untold heights.With roots going back to New York City's LaGuardia Arts High School, the band started out performing on the streets of New York and in small venues around the city. After years of exploring a variety of musical directions and styles, the band realized that they had created something so powerful that it needed to be pursued at all costs. With a mission to capture the energy of a rock band and fuse it seamlessly with the dance-ability of an EDM DJ, the group took their act to one of the most energetic, evolving and continuously pulsating venues in the world: the New York City subway system.Very quickly the band grew a legion of followers from their performances in the subway, but it was one tourist from South America who posted a cell phone video of the band in March of 2015 that changed everything. Within days of the posting, millions of people had viewed the video and the numbers began to explode. Lucky Chops soon found themselves on a European tour which included groundbreaking shows in Denmark and France, further expanding their global fan base and visibility.Upon their return, Lucky Chops went right back into the subway and began performing at clubs all over NY, selling out rooms every time. As the attention on them grew they appeared as the house band for a season on MTV's hit talk show "Girl Code Live," opening up the band to a wider audience who quickly learned that a brass band from New York had the same musical and magnetic pull as their favorite stars. Heading into 2016 with a rabid fan base and over 40 MILLION views on all their videos in tow, Lucky Chops is setting out to show the world city by city, country by country, and video by video, the pure magic that happens each and every time they get together.
