In 2009 Christian Garrick established the refreshingly unconventional and snappily attired Budapest Café Orchestra. The intention to present a broad range of music from all over the world in the most entertaining and fun way. One of BCO’s prime directives is to take the music seriously but not so much themselves. Part of the secret formula of the BCO’s show presentation is performing all the music from memory and, combined their trademark wit and charm, leave audiences tingling with warmth and delight.
BCO are one of the very busiest acoustic groups, today playing an average of 60 to 70 shows per year. Since their inception they have recorded one album every year and in January 2023 made their 14th Pavane (& the whole shebang-bang).
