Balkun Brothers House Party – Europe Here We Come


The Balkun Brothers held a House Party at the family home as a kick-off/fundraiser for their trip to Europe.  They will be playing Germany, France, Netherlands. Belgium, and Luxembourg.  They will be touring with Popa Chubby and kicking off a new CD.

Then Steve took over and told of this new adventure they are on.  He also told some family stories adding a touch of humor to the show.

Nick also joined in with comments of his own.


Then the music got serious.  But not before the buffet table spread was sampled.










Some young fans and students were in the audience.










Nick did his share.







It was a show up close and personal.







Nick joined in on the vocals.







And the evening was a lot of fun, even for the players.


After some US stops, Maine, NC,and the Daytona Beach Blues Fest, they will be going across the pond.

    It was a nice “send off” party for the Balkun Brothers. They will be doing some gigs in Maine and down south, before touring Europe with Popa Chubby. Should be quite an experience.
