Event Description

THE TEQUILA MOCKINGBIRD ORCHESTRA are coming to Saltspring Island for the very first time!!!!

Friday January 13
Moby's Bar
$10 tickets
Come with your dancing shoes on!

Known through out Canada and The US as one of the most satisfying bands to dance your pants off to, TMO are thrilled to finally be making it to SaltSpring....already having performed at Hornby Island Music Fest, Island Folk Fest, Victoria Ska Fest, Cortes Winter Fest, and up and down the island, it seems complete madness the band has come to visit you all yet! Stoked to see what your infamous island has up it's sleeves!

Back after a year on the road, taking the band from Memphis to Montreal, San Fransisco to Bethlehem, The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra are stoked to be back in the west for a final fling before they move out East to Toronto to record with Mr. David Travers-Smith.

For those of us waiting with baited breathe to hear TMO's newest recordings, the band is touring with a 5 song EP in the works with a widening sound that binds the country-roots feel and harmonic storytelling of “The Blanche Album”, with the Roma and Afrrican inspiration that the band is known for from “The Double EP”, and as always, is firmly grounded in traditional and roots music.

With an absolute truth to their music that is immediately recognized by audiences, The EP sees TMO experimenting with purposefully plodding and visceral rhythms, described as “like a heard of elephants being held back tight with reigns”, interwoven with elemental break downs, jazz flourishes, and often unadorned, but striking vocals . The ballads have a nostalgic, romantic appeal and a developing mastership of group vocals and 3 part harmonies. It is as the band says, just a blueprint of the next album, to be recorded in January, 2012 with engineer and producer David Travers-Smith.

This show will be a chance to experience the live show that TMO are known for, and that keeps bringing them back to festival stage after festival stage.

"There's an authentic quality about the TMO that few bands these days posses. Their mesmerizing stage presence, and unique approach to live music put them in a position to dominate the National touring circuit..."-Paul Hinrichs, Director of Bookings & Promotions,The Royal
