1. Whoa....nice music.

Can't quite pin it down as to who, where, or when. I know what is.

2. They are based in TX but at least one band member is Eastern European

From the Ukraine maybe? They play lots of “Gypsy festivals”

5. Depends on what you call different

I played one of those throughout my entire college career. Made by Fabrika Lunacharskaya in what was then Leningrad, though the bass player here was playing it as if it were a western bass. Russians use a completely different technique.
