The Gypsy Hotel club nights keep travelling around London in search for a permanent venue since the closure of Bardens Boudoir – next stop is The Horatia on Holloway Road (the pub formerly known as Lord Nelson) - we hope to see you there!   “IF YOU ONLY HAVE 12 HOURS TO LIVE, SPEND IT AT GYPSY HOTEL!” GYPSY HOTEL - “Bourbon Soaked Snake Charmin Rock'n'Roll Cabaret” Saturday 25 September 2010  *LINE-UP*  DRUNKEN BALORDI – Gypsy Punks!  *Drunken Balordi have been storming the music scene for the last 2 years playing to crowds all over Europe and USA. Their debut gig at the famous *100 Club* in Oxford St.London was a fitting gig for a band with such strong punk roots, attitude and energy. With their eclectic roots from Italy/South Africa/Ireland/New Zealand they play a crazy high energy gypsy punk and completely work the crowds into a party frenzy. Driving their fusion sound of World Punk, Balkan, Klezmier and Folk tunes which sight The Clash and Negresses Verts as a big influence they have quickly gone on to support Stiff Little Fingers, The Blockheads, Spear of Destiny, Alabama 3, Kultur Shock, Pama International, The Popes and Shane MacGowan, System7, playing Stummerville Campfire stage Glastonbury 2010 and many other festivals this summer throughout Europe   MAT FRASER - Mutated Freakshow Legend! *Mat has graced the Gypsy Hotel stage on more than one occation and has had the audience in stiches every time!

After moving to London, a combination of serendipity and sordid late-night drinking sessions soon brought him into contact with exactly the sort of likeminded and talented musicians who could make his idea’s become a reality: ‘Drink has often given me the courage to pursue my many day dreams, some with positive results, others less so. Luckily, this time proved to be positively glorious.’ said Keith.
