Mirror on the wall, who's that hot band in the hall?
It's the Squirrel Nut Zippers! The Zippers have a distinctive sound like no other
group out there. They like to play "hot" jazz. "Hot" jazz originated in
the 1920's and is consisted of ragtime and dixieland charts. On their latest
recordings, "Perrenial Favorites" and "Christmas Caravan", they go back
to their roots from Chapel Hill, N.C. and they play music that has a country
feel to it. At the same time it has a swingin', almost phsycodellic sound
fun playing their music and it shows. It doesn't matter if you can hit every
note. What matters is if you make it sound fun. Let me assure you, this
is fun music! You'll be tappin' your toes and singin' along with their
recordings when you hear them. The band is very entertaining.
The new recording Bedlam Ballroom is a must! Also, updates coming soon on their 2001 Sunfest performance in West Palm Beach, FL!
