Squirrel Nut Zippers
THU, MAR 1
ďItís not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that itís hot.Ē NPR
Combine high-energy showmanship with elements of gypsy jazz, honky-tonk blues and witty swing overtones, and youíll have Squirrel Nut Zippers. In honor of the 20th anniversary of Hot, the bandís top-charting fast-and-loose ode to hot jazz, SNZ creator Jimbo Mathus and founding drummer Chris Phillips have enlisted leading musicians from New Orleans to serve up the bandís unique musical flavor, which owes its roots to that city. ďHot is exuberant, gin house swing without apologies and it rocks without pretense,Ē raves Pitchfork.com. Swing back to the 1920s and í30s and salute late-night speakeasy jazz with one of the most vivacious alternative bands of their time.
