HUNGARIANS STILL ROCK
The Hungarian Embassy is still rockin’ five years after Ambassador Andras Simonyi gave his last performance with his own rock band, the Coalition of the Willing, and returned to Budapest.
However, the embassy’s new band, the Diplomats, needs help. The players are looking for a singer “with a characteristic tone fitting rock and blues songs.” They’ll take a man or a woman.
The band asks anyone who will devote about two hours a week to rehearsals to send an email to Rsvp.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr. Simonyi, ambassador here from 2002 to 2007, organized a band with drummer Alexander Vershbow, a former U.S. ambassador, and Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, a former guitarist with the Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan who now is a Defense Department adviser.
