Plaid Tongued Devils

 Calgary, Alberta, CAN

Together 18 years. 2 electric violins blasting out feisty gypsy dance party good time! CBC Radio called them "the thinking man's party band" and "Canada's loudest folk band". We never fail to please and audience. We've toured Canada and Europe extensively.


We combine gypsy and klezmer with rock and ska. We also delve into middle eastern feels, a bit of jazz and pop. The sound is unique and consistent.
