The five piece alt-country outfit known as Oh Dinah was formed in early 2006. They have become well known around the Halifax music scene, playing at local pubs and clubs. Their songs sound from the inside of the AM radio that played on Sunday afternoons while sleeping through church services and summer jobs. Oh Dinah channels artists ranging from Frank Black to Buck Owens, from Sister Rosetta Tharpe to Victor Pelevin. They are a family of young, delightful musicians who like to share a hearty dinner around the kitchen table after coming home late from a show. Look out for their upcoming release, Ardoise, in June 2008.

Oh, Dinah dear, thy Gumbo's here,
Waiting beneath the old gum-tree;
The stars of night are far less bright
Than is my Dinah's eyes to me.
The mocking-bird's note, which on the air floats,
Is thrown in the shade when Dinah sings.
Then Dinah dear, thy Gumbo's here,
While soft he strikes his banjo strings.
Give but one smile, to cheer this child,
And your own Gumbo will away;
Then all the day work will seem play,
And while I'm thinking of Dinah I'll be gay
And like the grape-vine which round the oak twine,
Oh, Dinah dear, to Gumbo cling;
Then Dinah dear, thy Gumbo hear,
While soft he strikes his banjo strings
