Violinist Ernie Gruner and accordionist/singer Phil Carroll draw from diverse sources: Gypsy, Klezmer, Middle-Eastern, French, Italian, Russian, jazz and tango. Their music ranges from soulful to wild. They have both studied overseas, and play and record together in larger bands (Klezmeritis, Yalla!, Flirting Mazurkas).

Ernie specializes in Jewish music and Phil specializes in Middle-Eastern music. They have worked together on and in theatre and dance events for Russian, Armenian, Jewish, Turkish, French and Italian communities.

Australian concert highlights include the National Folk Festival and National Multicultural Festival. Phil and Ernie's five NZ tours have included the Wellington & Dunedin Folk Festivals and the Christchurch Jazz Festival.

This is lively passionate gypsy music to dance away your troubles by; played on abrasive fiddle and wheezy piano accordion, Bohemian Nights is reminiscent of Hungarian goulash, red wine, French bread, Gitanes cigarettes and sensuous painted ladies from the thirties...
