When The Hungarian Fortune Teller Booty-Calls Elvis

Ivan & The Parazol is an anomaly. An already generational icon rock band in their homeland of Hungary yet just in their early 30s.
The once high school and music school friends from the capital of Budapest are now one of the most established bands that conquered 3 generations of fans with their spectacularly timeless blast of rock & roll joy.
Their allure is simple: eastern european angst and anger mixed with vintage west coast bohemia.
