Bio

We are a New Orleans styled trad. jazz, swing, dixieland punk old timey outfit that meets general theatrics and some rabble-rousing. 

Generally, we are a playful group of folks and that’s how we play. Learning most of our tricks from the streets and folk culture; we use storytelling and music to create acts of celebration and good ol' mockery. Although, we draw largely from New Orleans traditional jazz as a medium for performance (think Fats Waller and Cab Calloway), we mix this with our own sense of spectacle (closest would be World Inferno Friendship Society or the Flaming Lips) to create punk-esk dancehall music/shows. Our mission is to challenge social barriers and be good people through playing music. Also, we love making people dance. 

Up next for us, we are cooking up a new album to be released, April 2017, entitled:  

“From the Hot Club of Gutterland”

In our short time as a band ( total of 10 months together) we’ve already had some pretty memorable moments like; in May 2016 we recorded out first EP, “Professor Andy Dolgin’s Medicinal Tonic and Jazz Band” introducing a turn of the century medicine show, in June 2016 we went on a 3 week European tour playing in; Italy, Bulgaria, Serbia, Romania (notably, Revolution Festival in Timisoara), we played music with folks at the EKO refugee camp in Greece after our tour, interviews on CP24 and JazzFM91, being featured on youtube children’s show “Sing Along with Tobee”(airing in January) and documentary “BUSKERS”, playing at BuskerFestTO, Clay and Paper’s “Night of Dread”, an after party for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and parties in Nathan Phillips Square.
