Event Description

Debauche [de - bsh]: an exuberant gathering involving drinking, singing and dancing.

Genres: Alternative / World / Folk-Punk / Russian Retro Punk / Traditional songs of criminals from Odessa and the Great Mother Russia / jail songs / songs of orphans and prostitutes / Ukrainian / Klezmer.

Debauche formed in about 2008 at Kahve Coffeeshop on Royal Street in New Orleans, where Ukrainian-born Yegor Romantsov sang every Friday from 10pm till 12am, drinking his home made honey pepper vodka and singing his Russian hooligan songs. Little by little, these evenings turned into debauche (jam sessions). Among frequent guests besides friends, neighbors, and police, were Eve Venema and Christian Kuffner (from the Zydepunks). Jesse Stoltzfus, who had broken his hand and couldnt play violin started with the band as a drummer. Later he had mastered both of those instruments and now can play on them simultaneously. He can also ride a unicycle and juggle at the same time. Later the band welcomed Vincent Schmidt an accordion player from Oregon, where he played in another Russian band Chervona, and also the bass player from Zydepunks Scott Potts, who later mastered the upright bass and took a truly Russian nickname Boroda. Now he is called Scott The Beard Boroda. And one of the earliest musicians was Eli Pritykin whos mostly responsible for all the band's graphic work. Joe Lilly, the ex-Zydepunks drummer, Joseph McGinty on violin and bellydancer Kerry Lynn are the latest additions to Debauche.
