The Trouble Notes is a Gypsy Fusion trio consisting of violinist/vocalist, Bennet Cerven, guitarist Florian Eisenschmidt and percussionist, Oliver Maguire. Having been raised in different countries with contrasting backgrounds (UK, Germany and USA), each individual brings a unique perspective and flavor to the group’s core. What they share is a common sacrifice – the comfort and stability of career and home – to travel and spread their musical talents to every culture of the world while further growing as musicians and beings. Their music has been described as "a storm in a world fusion honeypot of Argentinian Tango and Spanish flamenco rhythms, mixed up in Klezmer melting over an operatically beautiful Gypsy violin and endless wonderous waterfall of Romani sounds."

They have embraced the traveler’s life and spent their first year together performing in the streets of the world. Upon embarking on their journey, they completely immersed themselves in their music, seeking to pioneer a new genre of Gypsy Fusion by mixing the traditional sounds of their many cultural experiences. A unique bond was forged with the street, enhancing their style and leaving a footprint on each composition. The group’s repertoire aims to take you on a journey, their journey, and tells a fantastic tale of dedication, suffering, and redemption.
