"It's not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers."
It was about 20 years ago when NPR’s Morning Edition said: “It’s not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it’s hot.”The year 2016 marked the 20th anniversary of the Squirrel Nut Zippers most celebrated and commercially successful album "Hot," and the band is celebrating with their first tour in seven years, performing at major festivals this year including the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, LEAF Festival and Exit Zero Jazz Fest. “We are humbled and incredibly excited by the initial Zippers shows since the re-launch,” says band leader Jimbo Mathus. “It’s not a reunion, it’s a revival! The band includes cutting-edge talent from New Orleans and the songs have been brought to life in an exciting new way. But most things remain unchanged… An amazing experience for young and old.” Plans are underway for the band to record a brand new album, which will be their first new Zippers studio album in 17 years.
