Gig Information

Mikleangelo - THE BALKAN ELVIS via Australia

With six-piece band featuring members Niko Ne Zna


What if Elvis was born in the Balkans and played piano accordion?

Festival favourite Mikelangelo (of Black Sea Gentlemen fame) gives the King an almighty transformation, bringing him back to life in a way you've never seen before. Follow the exploits of Johnny Presley, the Balkan Elvis, as he searches for love, fame and fortune behind the iron curtain, reimagining the songs of 'The American Elvis' as lilting waltzes and barnstorming Balkan wedding polkas. Elvis hasn't been this much fun since 1956 - uproarious, uplifting and dead sexy.

Featuring a six-piece band, with Dave Evans on piano accordion and members of Niko Ne Zna, NZ’s finest Balkan brass gypsy outfit.

This hunka hunka Balkan love puts an inspired spin on the King

Adelaide Now

He's handsome, sexy, charismatic and with a voice two octaves lower than Elvis can seduce with a ballad or set your heart on fire with rock'n'roll desire Canberra Critics Circle

What Elvis Presley would have sounded like if he was raised in the Balkans on fire roasted capsicum instead of in Mississippi on fried chicken
