I have to second Charlie Hook's comments about the festival in Hungary. ]
The Boondockers were there last year in 2004 & we had a great time. We did
5 concerts from one end of Hungary to the other. Tamas had everything
wonderfully organized. The music at his festival was superb, including his
Bohem Ragtime Jassband. There is also a young 15-year (probably 16-year old
by now) trombone player there who is very good & will someday be a jazz
At a restaurant we saw a phenomenal Gypsy band. They could play anything.
The food was wonderful. For 5 of us, complete meals, desserts, drinks, tip,
was about $90.
As I remember, the very nice hotels ran about $20 to $30 a night.
The country was beautiful and the people were very gracious & friendly. We
would go back in a heart beat.
I do encourage anyone wanting a great, inexpensive vacation good Jazz, to
visit Hungary during the festival.
