Gig Information

Niko Ne Zna. New Zealand’s own very own Balkan Gypsy brass extravaganza. With a history that goes back eight years, this nine piece band has evolved into a true Gypsy juggernaut stunning audiences everywhere they go with their thrillingly energetic performances.

Their music is high energy with dark undertones and sexy gypsy style, combining exotic tunes, fantastic grooves and exciting solos.The band consists of some of New Zealand’s finest instrumentalists who come from a wide array of musical backgrounds. Two trumpets, saxophone, bass and tenor trombones, sousaphone, percussion, Balkan bass drum (tapan) and snare drum produce a cocktail that will make your ears rise to attention and your feet move in a frenzy. Vocalist/percussionist, Nikkie Rich, sings in Serbian, Romani, Macedonian and Greek – ancient languages in which songs like ‘Ederlezi’ have been sung since the beginning of time.

In the best tradition of Roma Gypsy bands, Niko Ne Zna can roam while playing, giving the whole performance that authentic flavour and enchanting the audience into dancing, singing, clapping and stomping all night long.

The band has three of its original songs featured on the film 'What We Do In The Shadows' which was a hit in cinemas in New Zealand and film festivals around the world.

Doors from 9pm, Show at 11. $5 on the door.
