The Benka Boradovsky Bordello band is a highly theatrical musical group specialising in music of Eastern European, Gypsy and Jewish flavour.

With music ranging from old to new (including originals and standards) they are remarkable in their ability to get everyone up and dancing, regardless of age, musical taste, or level of drunkenness!

Benka's globetrotting voice sings in a wide variety of languages, with lyrics in Russian, Greek, Serbian, Romani, Arabic, Hebrew, Spanish, English and more.

While developing a furiously expanding following in Auckland, the band has prepared itself to encroach on more distant surroundings. If references are necessary, they sound like Tom Waits, Shane McGowan and Franz Kafka drunk too much vodka and thought they were in 1950's Yugoslavia.

The BBB are supported by The Jews Brothers and DJ Balkanetic!
