Brass, percussion, strings, and squeezebox; music, wine, and good times!

Balkany play upbeat songs from the four corners of Europe, getting audiences moving gypsy-style with a mix of covers and original music.

Band members hail from Wellington’s infamous 25-piece orchestra of chaos, The Balkanistas.

"Balkany added exactly the right energetic beats and environment to keep 900 attendees enthralled and up dancing throughout the after party at TSB Arena. Their pre-show trio also set the scene and helped build the right atmosphere in the large room at the start of the night. Thanks for your contribution to this successful night of Wellington celebration."
"Sensational band that cooked all night. They learned a complex song on request. Their music created an instant dance floor and was enjoyed by everyone. Their professionalism in liaising directly with the venue for all technical issues saved us a lot of stress. Could not recommend this band any more highly. The highlight of our wedding."

"Balkany was a perfect addition to our cocktail and awards reception. We were hosting an international conference and wanted a memorable and entertaining experience for our delegates at the closing event. The band was super easy to work with and were totally flexible in meeting our needs as far as the kind of music we needed to fit our programme. After the awards and speeches the band really got cooking and kept our delegates dancing well into the night. We were so happy to see the conference goers enjoying themselves and talking about how much fun it was having Balkany as the entertainment."
