Ask Budapest West anything...

Q: Hey, your music is really great!! One question, why named Budapest? I live here in Budapest and really curious! :-) Wish you all the bests!
A: Hi: Thanks for the question. Although I was raised in the United States, I am from a Hungarian family and many of my family traveled back to Budapest, and we had relatives who still lived in the city. Some of the older family memebers even had newspapers shipped from Budapest back to the United States. So, although I've never personally been to Budapest, I have always felt a connection with the city, and would love to visit someday. I now live on the West Coast of the United States, near the Pacific Ocean...when I needed a name for the band, I thought Budapest West made sense, and had a nice sound to it. It represents my love of fusing Eastern and Western music, and has a personal connection as well. Thanks again for asking...that is a great question. Rob
