The Mango Balloon, Volume 3

Romero Records is very happy to announce the release of Volume 3 of Julian Curwin’s The Mango Balloon series. Developed in 2010 as a stripped-back version of The Tango Saloon, the smaller band has quickly taken on a life of its own.

Each recording has a special guest bringing their personality to the music, and on Volume 3 that guest is Shenzo Gregorio, best known for playing ‘stunt violin’ in his project Shenzo’s Electric Stunt Orchestra (essentially, he flies!). With The Mango Balloon, Shenzo plays viola, and keeps his feet firmly on the ground, though still manages to bring plenty of fireworks to the occasion.

Volume 3 is officially launched March 19 at Venue 505.

Review of ‘In Black And White’ Launch

The Tango Saloon’s launch for the ‘In Black And White’ video has received an amazing review from John Shand for The Sydney Morning Herald! Some highlights:

“This, quite simply, is one of Australia’s best bands and yet as superb as the eight players and singer are, Julian Curwin’s brilliant compositions are the ultimate stars.

“Put this band on any stage anywhere in the world and the audience will be engrossed as well as amused.”
