The band, A Hawk and a Hacksaw, hails from Albuquerque. Lately, they've been living and performing in Budapest. But recently, the group had an unusual gig -- as the house band for a Romanian restaurant in London. The World's Hugo Boothby took in the show -- and a meal -- and sent us this Global Hit.
Music in restaurants can be a hit or miss affair. But, once in a while if you're lucky the house band is the best thing on the menu. Tonight in this Romanian restaurant, the main course is A Hawk and a Hacksaw. The band's songwriter and accordion player is Jeremy Barnes.
