Ska, Klezmir, Old Times & Blues Rock - Wells, British Columbia
The Interstellar Jays rise from the compost pile of musical decomposition to bring you a galactic tea of old tyme, klezmer and ska. Fiddle driven and bass powered, this Cariboo four-piece embraces the bush experience in all its music, yet still ventures into town for a good time. The Jays’ refreshing selection of tunes and their commitment to groove is specifically designed to enhance the bounty of your mental garden.
The Cariboo’s Interstellar Jays are excited to announce the release of their debut album. Recorded in Cottonwood, BC and self produced from concept to pressing, Musasabi Madness is 55 minutes of groovedriven good times. 14 tracks boast an upbeat blend of ska, klezmir, and old tyme fiddle designed to brighten up your day.
Interstellar Jays embrace instrumental music by exploring all that a melody and a rhythm have to offer. Original arrangements of obscure and familiar old tunes mix with traditional gems to fill a large and growing repertoire of music for any occasion.
