Buffo’s Wake takes the style of Eastern European gypsy music and spins it on its head with a dark and macabre twist. Formed in Brighton in October 2010, Buffo’s Wake have recorded live sessions for the BBC, toured throughout Europe, played with some of the finest bands, stormed through some of the best venues throughout the UK and made a hell of a lot of people dance.
Their strange and unique blend of Gypsy Punk and Horror Klezmer Ska has earnt them a reputation as one of Brighton’s best and most energetic live bands. With snarling vocals, offbeat lyrics and sweeping violins, they constantly find themselves in a frenzy of foot stomping, drink swilling Gypsy madness.
If you’re a fan of Gogol Bordello, Cat Empire, Tom Waits, Molotov Jukebox, The Destroyers and Nick Cave, You’ll probably go nuts for Buffo’s Wake.
