About the Plaid Tongued Devils
Their music combines elements of Klezmer (Jewish), Roma (Gypsy), and Middle Eastern dance beats with rock, pop and ska. They are the world's only klezmer ska band. Think Fiddler On The Roof on steroids with Eddie Van Halen on violin and a guy with horns singing. Then dance!
They have toured Canada, the U.S. and Europe countless times, headlined over 30 festivals worldwide, numerous concert style shows, and written and performed live plays. They were headliners for the 2010 Paralympics closing ceremonies, 2007 Calgary Canada Day Celebration and for the official 2007 Junos After Party. Their hit play In 'In Klezskavania' won the 2005 Dr. Betty Mitchell Award for Outstanding Composition.
About All Hands on Jane
All Hands on Jane is a three-piece, Calgary-based band originally formed in October 2010. Material incorporates dirty rock and blues-style riffs mixed with grooving, grinding tempo changes, with solos and impromptu jams during our live shows.
About The Wandering Gypsies
The Lady Cathryn and Paul the Skald are both native Calgarians and long-term professional, licensed psychics within the city of Calgary. These two are The Wandering Gypsies; along with a cast of exceptionally talented readers, psychics, and friends whom they can call upon to provide a wonderful experience.
