Half Moon presents:
The Return of The Pogue Traders
The Pogue Traders + The Balkanoes
Entry Requirements: 18+ after 7pm
An awesome night of celtic folk punk: The Pogue Traders are the UK's best Pogues tribute band with support from The Balkanoes
“Hey London, Go see this band” - The Pogues
“The best Pogues tribute band I have ever seen” - Andrew Ranken, drummer with The Pogues
The Pogue Traders
It's not The Pogue Traders who describe themselves as the UK's best Pogues tribute band - that's what The Pogues' own drummer Andrew Ranken said about us; and we are delighted to be backed by The Pogues who recently posted: 'London, Go see these blokes!'
'I'll come straight to the point: The Pogue Traders are absolutely fantastic. Seriously, if you ever see these guys and leave without an ear-to-ear grin spread across your chops and a song in your heart, stop and check your pulse - you may very well be dead.'
Neil Skinner, Watford Observer
The Balkanoes fuse Eastern European and Jewish music with a joyous energy to guarantee a Balkan bash of mammoth proportions. Moving seamlessly from traditional klezmer to gypsy grooves and unique takes on well-known classics, The Balkanoes will keep you dancing all night long!
Formed in 2010 in Cambridge, The Balkanoes have played at venues across the UK and are available for birthdays, parties, festivals, bat mitzvahs, bar mitzvahs, funerals, big nights out, quiet nights in, anniversaries, weddings, dinners for two, and cheap manual labour.
