When the gypsy-jazz band from Halifax cranks up the sexy rhythms and guitar ticklings that recall French guitar legend Django Reinhardt, anything can happen. [And] whatever happens on the dancefloor, stays on the dancefloor.

Each time we come back to Fredericton it is more awesome than the time before. Thanks to Wilser's Room and an amazing crowd for a crazy show tonight. There were some great moments: people chanting "Gina!" over and over, shouting "SPORTS!" for some mysterious reason, and requesting our tunes by name. We even played a whole set of miniature versions of songs we'd already done for people who had missed the first set. A wild and beautiful night.

Italian space/gypsy music band - Taluna), and at the Winnipeg
