After a successful brining on the East Coast (many thanks to all the maritimers who we got to meet and play with) the lads are back at the Rex every Friday in December. 5:30-7:30pm with nearly a different line up every week. Merry Christmas. You're welcome
East Coast Tour. The Great Brining. 5 nights, 5 mediocre performances at least. Here's the promo for the Antigonish Jazz Festival on Nov. 16. https://antigonishjazzfest.ca/event/worst-pop-band-ever/
The In the Soil Arts Festival starts this week! We finally get to play in person at 12pm on June 17 at the Niagara Artists Centre. We'll be collaborating with collage artist, Jenn Judson and special guest, Sophia Perlman. We'll be making music for "Drawerings..."

Come join us for Adrean's last hurrah with the band for now as he goes on to pursue new opportunities on the east coast for the next little while (yes he is the new Anne of Green Gables) At the Jazz Bistro, Aug. 18, 8pm.
Fresh from the studio we're at the Jazz Bistro this Wed, Feb. 9, at 8pm.
We did a little prerecorded show at the legendary and newly renovated El Mocambo, as part of the City of Toronto and TD Toronto Jazz Festival's - “City of Culture” initiative highlighting different parts of the city. We got to highlight my fave - Chinatown. The concert airs on Jazz Fm 91.1 and youtube HERE on Jan.6 at 7pm
It's a concert from the safety of your own home - no riots, no viruses, no parking. Thanks to Josh @torontojazzfest, @jazzfm91 and @cityofto for having us.

Back at the Rex every Thursday in November. 5:30pm. Also had a great time filming at the El Mocambo for the TD Toronto Jazz Festival. I don't think it will be aired until the new year though.
So happy to be back at the Rex last week and the Jazz Bistro tonight. Hopefully we can keep it going!

Looking for something weird to watch/listen to during lockdown? Then may we humbly suggest the Worst Photo Booth Ever. With the support of the In The Soil Festival, The Canada Council for the Arts, as well as the Toronto and Ontario Arts councils at various stages, we put together a little video that is sure to cause some head scratching. It does feature some new music though and was done completely unrehearsed and socially distanced during that special year known as 2020. It's also exclusively available as a radioplay on our Bandcamp page, so you can download it or stream it like a podcast. You're welcome.
Another brand new video Love is for Losers
with special guests Sophia Perlman and Rebecca Hennessy. Special thanks to Matt Dusk for sound and camerawork.
