It's a Thursday theme night at Tractorgrease with the taste and sounds of New Orleans. The Milk Crate Bandits will be playing their New Orleans inspired DIxie Jazz and we'll be cookin' up some Louisiana style treats.
Tickets are $12 and available during business hrs at 604 858 3814 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. It’s music born on the streets. Walking down the streets of Vancouver you’ll see them on their stolen plastic thrones and playing the sounds of New Orleans. Yes, some may say they’re crooks but the petty theft of a milk crate from a back alley is surely absolved by the love they’ll 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!
In October 2016 the Milk Crate Bandits travelled to New Orleans to record two EPs with New Orleans great Kevin Louis on Trumpet. The first, 'The Neighbourhood', is out now.
