The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra
From the Promoter
THE TEQUILA MOCKINGBIRD ORCHESTRA
The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra are a collection of musicians, linked by common sonic journeys and familial ties. It doesn’t matter much how they got here, but rather that they are traveling with each other. Now they are here in the room with you, the way music in the folk tradition always is, to bring people together; to share real flesh, blood and feeling.
WE MAKE REALLY PARTY is a 5 song EP that returns to the old world sounds the band became known for in its early years. With both original and reimagined roots and folk songs in English, Spanish and Italian WE MAKE REALLY PARTY captures the band playing live off the floor in a three day session after their 2016 summer tour. It is a record that is refined in both playing and production while honouring the band's past musically.
TMO have spent years weaving their stories with guitars and violins, with accordions and bass, with melodies and music makers gleaned from their wanderings. Here are the troubadours to remind you that this music (no matter what kind of device it ends up on) could not exist without warm bodies in search of harmony.
Nanise started out as a young un in rural Alberta. She moved to the big city, moved away and moved back. She moved. She shifted. Shifted her perspective. Her perspective around needs. What she needs. What people need. Need for their body and mind. Mind next to body, not over or under. She understands the body. What the body needs. à la Nanise.
The queen of gentle agreements
