The instumentation and personality make for an engaging performance. Together they create a unique sound that is inspired by the Tex-mex and the avant garde traditions. A combination of hillarious proportions. A carnaval of improvisation... a tragedy of unfortunate notes...some laughs...and a really twisted wedding band....that’s what we are......“If we could only get a wedding gig, I could die a Happy man” Jean Martin
We are an eclectic quintet, featuring Justin Haynes (defretted guitar), Jean Martin (drums), Nick Fraser (drums), Ryan Driver (streetsweeper bristle bass) and Tania Gill (melodica) taking a fresh look at improvising, combining elements of song and free playing. The pieces explore aspects of jazz, folk song, texmex and the avant garde.
The group plays mostly original music and some classic Mexican traditionals.The music is created, by incorporating various elements; songs, composed melodic material, drums, fretless guitar, glockenspiels, melodica and the Quasi-ruler bass.
