Born on the streets of Toronto as a busking band in 2010, Canada's only Balkan- Klezmer-Gypsy-Party-Punk supergroup, The Lemon Bucket Orkestra, has toured the world and taken over international festivals ever since - and now land in Auckland to celebrate the Festival Playground with an exuberant free concert.
Performing a tantalising mixture of musical flavours, including blues, jazz, folk and a deliciously authentic eastern European sound, this 16-piece orchestra and their larger-than-life music act will, most of all, get you on your feet and dancing.
