Wild, abandoned, but right on the money, they soon packed the floor in front of the bandstand with a crowd of partygoers whose feet were scorched by the fast, rickety regularity of Gypsy Jazz’s la pompe rhythm

New Album is DONE! Due Out May 2015
We are so thrilled that our new album is mixed, mastered and on its way to the vinyl pressing plant as we speak! It is sounding so good it is going to melt some hearts, I am quite sure. Recorded at Joel Plaskett's New Scotland Yard studio (thanks to engineer Thomas Stajcer's steady hand), and with Joshua Van Tassel in the producer's chair these tunes really came to life. We can't wait for you to hear it. Stay tuned for more news: what it'll be titled, where you can get it, and extensive North American tour dates too.

MNS Awards and Montreal Animation Festival…
Happy fall y'all. We are proud to say that we've been nominated three times for Music Nova Scotia Awards this year. We are up for Best Video, Best Jazz Recording, and Best Group Recording of the year for "Horska". Very honoured and can't wait for the NSMW festivities in Truro in November (including a showcase for us). Also thrilled to say our video "Horska" will be featured in Montréal's Stop Motion Animation Film Festival in September. Plus we are busy recording a brand new album. Some of it is even in the can already and is sounding great. Exciting times!
You thousands of party people were just right - Thanks Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival!
