The Gypsy Barn Dance Cabaret

Sunday, March 29, at 6:00 p.m.

Rockin' Y Ranch 7600 Stillridge Drive Austin, TX 78736

On stage: Flying Balalaika Brothers White Ghost Shivers Wino Vino

Musical Connections and Maven Made Entertainment are hosting a unique and energetic live music performance at the inviting Rockin Y Ranch. The event is all ages and begins at 6pm on Sunday March 29th. This is a family friendly evening event. Tickets are $20 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors and children under 12 are free. Tickets available through venue 512-656-6865.

Flying Balalaika Brothers blends modern-day and traditional sounds to create a futuristic fusion of experimental world music. Their shows are extremely interactive and our concerts illuminate the passion, excitement and sorrow for which the Gypsy music is famous. Seamlessly moving from slower traditional Russian folk songs to guitar and drum-driven punk rock, the groups high-energy shows feel more like a block party than a performance.

White Ghost Shivers revel in string-band music from the 20s and 30s, mixing early jazz, hokum, vaudeville, ragtime, western swing and hillbilly, yet unleashing the gutterous underbelly of a pseudo-rock world gone wrong. A joyous mixture of the absurd and sublime, the six-piece ensemble gracefully blends a musical amalgam of Hokum Blues, Hillbilly Swing, Country and Hot Jazz.

Wino Vinos syncretic stylings have earned them the attention of the most discriminating Musicphiles. Their refined blend of salty lyrics, bawdy Prohibition-era cabaret, and Eastern European folk music features multiple vocalists, guitar, fiddle, accordion, upright bass, clarinet, trumpet, and percussion. Vibrant melodies and marvelously florid tempos of this band of charming miscreants coalesce to create a cheerful playground for their sweaty, satiated fans.

The City of Austins Cultural Arts Division, a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts, and an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, all have helped make this event possible. Please join us!

HELP NEEDED

ADVITA FUND USA

Advita Fund USA was founded in October 2007 (tax ID: 26-1300404).

Patients in Russia and the former Soviet Union face unique challenges:

  • lack of national bone marrow donor registry;
  • bureaucratic red tape that families have to struggle with to obtain governments treatment quotas;
  • lack of supporting medications that have to be purchased privately;
  • high cost of imported equipment and medications, and
  • inadequate federal financing of healthcare

As a result, thousands of children remain untreated, receive inadequate care, or run out of money long before the treatment is completed. While close to 80% of children with cancer are cured in the West, only 50% survive in Russian hospitals. We strive to close this gap.
Your donations are used to pay for bone marrow transplants, cancer drugs and supporting medications, and other necessary medical procedures.
The fund is staffed by volunteers only.
Thank you for your kindness!

Advita Fund USA is a volunteer-run organization - it means we pay no salaries to our staff and incur only minimal administrative expenses, so that most of the money we raise goes to patients we support.

You can make the donation at the ADVITA website
