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. Their live show is a showcase of musical virtuosity, performed with extreme energy and a megadose of fun. 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, and numerous concert style shows. The Devils have written and performed live plays and muscled out countless "knock down, drag out, dance-on the-tables, hang-by-the-rafters" club shows. 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.
Known around the globe for their punk-rock bastardization of klezmer music, their sedated approach to ska, their belly-dancing cabaret mayhem and, most of all, their enthralling gypsy melodies,"

About All Hands on Jane
All Hands on Jane is a three-piece, Calgary-based band that was originally formed in October 2010. From the start, we have been keen on development and have been working hard on expanding our sound. Our new material incorporates some dirty rock and blues-style riffs mixed with some grooving, grinding tempo changes. Basically, we like to break it down and keep folks hopping. We enjoy jamming out with solos and impromptu jams during our live shows.
