My homeland has recently been behaving in a most extraordinary manner. The Canadian dollar is currently worth more than the Gringo greenback, the NDP are outpolling the Liberals in the upcoming Federal election, and last night, to everyone's shock, the Vancouver Canucks somehow managed to not snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Game 7.
Further investigation is clearly warranted. Therefore, I am authorizing Secret Society for a strategic insertion into Canadian territories. Our incursion will proceed as follows:
In all seriousness, Secret Society have performed in London, Milan, Amsterdam, and various other European locales but will be our first time hitting the Canadian jazz festival circuit and I am so stoked to be able to bring my co-conspirators on a tour of my home and native land. We're counting on our Canadian partisans to help get the word out, so please tell all your buds about these shows!
Bigband travel expense are no joke and there's no way we would be able to do this without the very generous support of the following awesome organizations:
And the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation!
The Society is insanely grateful to both of these organizations for making this tour possible.
Also, there is some official stuff I am supposed to say in acknowledgement of their support. Ready? Okay:
"This tour is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts which enables Canadian audiences to discover artists from other regions and provinces."
"This engagement is supported by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through USArtists International in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation."
