The Forgotten Bouzouki

Formed in 1988, The Forgotten Bouzouki is the premiere Greek band in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Nowadays the band consists of George Miminis and six first-class professional musicians: Dave Panting (8-string Bouzouki, baglamas, lute, mandolin), Darren Browne (6-string bouzouki, baglamas, mandolin), Brian Cherwick (accordion, baglamas) , Maria Cherwick (violin), Simon Miminis (drum kit, tubeleki) and Matt Hender (bass).

The band performs several genres of Greek music, including traditional, island, ballads, folk and Rebetika (the latter is the “equivalent” of American Blues) and has played in theaters, pubs, dinner & dance settings as well as a number of festivals, including the NL Folk Festival and the Wreckhouse International Jazz and Blues Festival.
