“Clayton picks are amazing, durable and have a great feel! I can’t use anything else!” — Jakovich Skolnick, QUEL BORDEL!
QUEL BORDEL! was founded in San Diego in 2013 when a Ukrainian gypsy named Jakovich Skolnick met renowned classical violinist Regina Brown on a French Caribbean cruise line. Adding two Filipino brothers Aaron and Allen after meeting on a sordid fishing trip, the band came to America and enlisted drummer Nick Sitar to form an insanely energetic gypsy band of the world. Immediately beginning with an year-long residency headlining Gaslamp venue Jimmy Love’s, QUEL BORDEL! has built a great following in San Diego. The band has headlined gigs at The Casbah and House of Blues Mainstage, and performed at the Get Shamrocked festival with the Young Dubliners and Dublin City Ramblers – all in under a year. The new EP “Qui Ne Chante Pas…” is receiving rave reviews and blowing up with with indie blogs. Likewise, the band has nationally touring dates scheduled through 2013 and an international tour slated for 2015 opening for French gypsy phenomenon BandápArt in Europe!!
