For these two groups, breaking molds and charting a new musical course is what helped each attain the highest level of success. The performances by these two critically acclaimed bands make for a delightfully eclectic and entertaining evening, with two sets plus collaboration.
ABOUT SQUIRREL NUT ZIPPERS
The Squirrel Nut Zippers sold over 3 million albums from 1995 to 2000 and their watershed record Hot was certified platinum. Their musical journey began in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the mid 1990’s, as a musician’s escape from the cookie-cutter world of modern rock radio. The current all-star cast of New Orleans musicians breathed new life into the old material, and inspired band leader Jimbo Mathus to return to the studio to reignite the band’s unique, enigmatic sound. Their current release Lost Songs of Doc Souchon, was inspired by all of the mysterious characters from the history of New Orleans jazz music. In it are ten new tracks, a combination of newly penned Zippers songs, along with a few tunes from long gone times.
