Dining Room Diplomats


Band Rock Funk




"CD Review"

Recorded at Private Ear Studios with John Paul Peters,
local group Feng Shui’s first EP, Under My Sweater, is a
diverse record of rock ‘n’ roll styles. The record starts
with Gasoline, a protest song with strong vocals and
great guitar presence - both of which are hard to miss
in this eclectic album. Sunny Afternoon is an upbeat
tune with a ska flavour. Lonely is simply a poignant
ballad, while Robobaby has a jazzy yet Doors-ish flavour with killer vocals. Shift to First
gives you that blues feel. Sly Jim in Abm takes that vibe one step further with a serene
piano intro and guitar licks that remind you of the Tragically Hip. Feng Shui is no doubt a
tight band; they would rock any venue and the vocals are phenomenal. Keep your ears to
the ground - they are on the up and up. - The Uniter


Formerly FENG SHUI, the Dining Room Diplomats are in the midst of recording their second EP. You can sample the first two tracks off their first EP, Under My Sweater, which was recorded with John Paul Peters at Private Ear Studios in Winnipeg. Their second, soon-to-be-released EP was recorded at Unison Studios with Jay Tooke and will debut in early 2012. Check out Under My Sweater's review from The Uniter in our press section!



Formerly FENG SHUI, the Dining Room Diplomats are a whiskey-drenched, blues-infused, pop-rock band from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Staying warm during the frigid winters of the northern prairies isn't easy, so this quintet got together to share songs and music that makes the dark and frozen months upbeat and endurable. Inspired by music that's become innovative in the Rock'n'roll genre, songwriters that have something to say, and vintage sounds and tones unmatchable to the digital age, they've created a sound that fuses old recording techniques with new technology. "Our main goal is to write honest music that honestly makes you wanna move your feet or hold up your lighter. If a song doesn't make an impression on us then we wouldn't expect it to entice the audience either."
