Cheeky Balkan Party Music!!!
Originally a dictatorship formed by the cunning Mr Tea, the Minions have since overthrown him and their chaos has brought forth a musical democracy where cheekiness, fun and a love for the music bind the band together into one massive colourful explosion!
They’re on a mission to ignite crazy dancing by audiences everywhere, with their brand of Gypsy flavoured party music to get their audience stirred into a big bouncing frenzy of fun! A hugely popular festival band, they have played raucous gigs at festivals including Glastonbury, Boomtown, WOMAD,Nozstock, Goulash Disko (Croatia), among many others.
September 2016 saw the release of their debut album, ‘Tea Your Mind’. The Minions play their own unique take on high energy Balkan party music - combining Gypsy flavoured Ska, Dub and Swing with an infusion of soulful melodies, cheeky Eastern riffs and booming beats and bass to put a smile on your face and your knees up past your ears!
“The Minions seamlessly weave Balkan Beats with ska, dub and swing to create a bouncing set. It’s impossible not to get involved.” The Independent
"Mr Tea and the Minions played one of the best performances we have ever seen! Expect great things from these guys .” Swingamajig Festival
