The Lemon Bucket Orkestra
the Lemon Bucket Orkestra started in Toronto by a Breton and a Uke over Balkan music and Vietnamese food. Tired of music "scenes" they hit the streets, busking by day and crashing parties by night, creating and living folk music music in the city with their folk-everything attitude and tendency to pop up everywhere, it wasn't long before they hooked up with other lemons who wanted in the bucket...
CNN, Fox News, CBC New and the New York Times all features LBO's spontaneous in-flight performance (over 260,000 youtube hits) on their broadcasts and websites. Late night show host Jimmy Kimmel has even polked fun at our guerilla folk antics, and Canadian Media mogul Moses Znaimer invited us to live in his coach house, tweeting us as "the best party band ever".
“We are cooking audio gumbo…our special recipe includes some funk, jazz, hip hop mixed with brass band traditions spiced up with African and other world rhythms…MUSIC FOR THE PEOPLE!"
Underground Horns is a Brooklyn based brass band playing Afro Funk Bhangra New Orleans grooves and beyond. AllAboutJazz called their 2009 debut record FUNK MONK "kick-ass dance music…that brushes up against psychedelia…with shots of funky brass juice."
Underground Horns performed internationally in Egypt, Germany and most recently at Tudo é Jazz in Brazil, stateside at the Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival, NYC Winter Jazz Festival, Lincoln Center and various Jam Band Festivals, sharing the bill with Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam's Funky Nation and B.B. King.
In the big city they make people dance in subway stations, parks and at their numerous club dates at Nublu, Barbes and Brooklyn Bowl, among others.
