On April 6 2017, Toronto’s own guerrilla-folk party-punks, the Lemon Bucket Orkestra, return to The Great Hall for their first show of 2017 to celebrate the 8th anniversary of LBO’s inception with all their local followers. 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 the string of prestigious brass bands from around the world that LBO have introduced to their legions of GTA fans.
Voted “Toronto’s Best Live Band” by the readers of NOW Magazine, Lemon Bucket Orkestra have been wowing Toronto audiences for close to a decade while also touring around the world, bringing their unstoppable and infectious musical mayhem to stages near and far. This first hometown show of 2017 promises to be a blast for fans both old and new. With a new repertoire to draw on and a few months of winter doldrums to bust out of, you can count on the LBO to leave it all on the dance floor for this performance.
This birthday show in The Great Hall’s Main Hall will also feature a special wedding hora themed short set — by popular request.
Then, a couple of weeks after the show, LBO will be heading to Europe to perform their immersive guerrilla-folk opera Counting Sheep. It’s an interactive retelling of the Ukrainian 2014 Revolution of Dignity, that some of the band members literally lived through. This tour will take the band to Germany, the U.K., Finland, Australia and the U.S. before the end of the year.
Watch a little of the Lemon Bucket Orkestra fun right now, right here.
LOWDOWN BRASS BAND
This will also be the Toronto debut of the horn-driven Chicago tour de force Lowdown Brass Band. From street beat to metal and beyond, their unique high-energy style 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 Roy Ayers himself as a special guest. LDB breaks the barrier between audience and performer with their kinetic live shows, featuring dynamic MC Billa Camp. www.lowdownbrassband.com
