DANCE Milk Crate Bandits Halloween in New Orleans *NEW TIME*
BC Tour - Criminally Good Music - Traditional Jazz
The Milk Crate Bandits started as Jack Ray busking on the streets of Sydney and Vancouver and of course stealing milk crates to sit on. The Milk Crate Bandits make music to make you dance, smile and party. Its music born on the streets. Walking down the streets of Vancouver youll see them on their stolen plastic thrones and playing the sounds of New Orleans. Yes, some may say theyre crooks but the petty theft of a milk crate from a back alley is surely absolved by the love theyll give you if you come and listen. The joy of the music will make you jump, holler and shout and some even say that being party to a misdemeanour makes it all the more fun!
They have released two EPs, The Neighbourhood and The View From Out Here both of which were recorded in New Orleans with Preservation Hall Trumpet player Kevin Louis. After a successful tours of BC in the Fall of 2017 and the Spring of 2018, featuring Brad Shigeta (Ellington Orchestra, Illinois Jacquet, Jack McDuff), The Neighbourhood hit #1 on the CBFX jazz charts. Milk Crate Bandits present a highenergy performance of New Orleans jazz, intimate acoustic moments and cheeky vocals.
The Neighbourhood is an incredible integration of New Orleans authentic jazz, scenic Vancouver lyrical illustrations, and original composing that results in a stunning collection of new music - Vintage Swing Review (2017) [On The Neighbourhood] A disc that has wonderful echoes of songs and swing but ultimately has its own distinctive personality. The Milk Crate Bandits offer pleasing surprises to even the most jaded listener. - Michael Steinam (JAZZ LIVES), 2017 [On Bandleader Jack Ray] The guy to keep Hot Jazz alive- Eddy Davis, American Banjo Hall of Fame and Woody Allen Jazz Band Banjoist.
