LEMON BUCKET ORKESTRA and LOWDOWN BRASS BAND
On April 6th, 2017, Torontos own guerrilla-folk party-punks return to the Great Hall for their first show of 2017 to celebrate the 8th anniversary of LBO's inception with local fans. Known for their wild balkan brass parties and inventive theatrical performances, this not-to-be-missed night will be the band's only local show until they release a brand new album in November. They will be joining forces with Chicago's notorious Lowdown Brass Band, another in a string of prestigious brass bands from around the world, that LBO have become famous for introducing to their legions of Toronto fans.
Voted Torontos Best Live Band by the readers of NOW Magazine, Lemon Bucket Orkestra have been wowing Toronto audiences for close to a decade and they have also toured around the world, bringing their unstoppable and infectious musical mayhem to stages near and far. This will be their first hometown show of 2017 and it promises to be a blast for fans both old and new. With new repertoire to draw upon and a few months of winter doldrums to break out of, you can count on the LBO massive to leave it all on the dance floor for this performance. A coupe of weeks after the show, the band will be heading to Europe to perform their immersive guerrilla-folk opera Counting Sheep. Its an interactive retelling of the Ukraines 2014 Revolution of Dignity, that some of the band members literally lived through that will be taking them to Germany, UK, Finland, Australia, and the US before the end of this year.
This will be the Toronto debut of the horn driven tour de force that is Chicagos Lowdown Brass Band. From street beat to metal and beyond, their unique high-energy style live has been perfectly captured on their latest release "Lowdown Sounds which features their version of the R&B classic "Everybody Loves the Sunshine" featuring soul legend himself Roy Ayers as special guest. LDB breaks the barrier between audience and performer with their kinetic live shows, featuring dynamic MC Billa Camp.
