Bandwagon: My Son The Hurricane – “Parade”

Bandwagon, the local video series featuring intimate performances from excellent bands, continues its seventh season with a performance of “Parade” by My Son the Hurricane.

My Son the HurricaneMy Son the Hurricane are a “14 piece brass-fuelled funk and dance beast.” Hailing from Toronto and the Niagara region, this unweildly orchestra, including a beefy brass section, mixes New Orleans-style grooves with funk, jazz, and hip hop—along with bucketfuls of charisma and manic energy.

Their wild performances have made them perennial festival favourites, including at our local Peterborough Folk Festival. They were one of the most talked-about acts at the 2016 festival, so much so that they were invited back for Folk Fest 2017, then played a Folk Fest-presented show at the Red Dog last November, and played the Peterborough Winter Folk Festival at the Red Dog earlier this month.

Before one of their Red Dog gigs, the Bandwagon crew came by to film them playing “Parade.” Check it out:
