The Brass Messengers and Tree Party with much pomp, circumstance and even more pomp announce their joint album releases to take place at the Cedar Cultural Center on August 25 th at 7:30 pm. Local Americana band Tree Party will kick off the evening with songs that will make you dance, cry, and hug a stranger. Tree Party is celebrating the release of two projects of their own. Shelterbelt has been in the making for three years, only put on hold because of a fire at the recording studio. You can hear the band's transition through those three years with folk and country-tinged songs at the beginning of the album transitioning to a more powerful indie rock ballad at the end. Tree Party is also releasing a 7” vinyl record made possible by Hymie's Vintage Records. The vinyl, Weight Off/ Drones, picks up where Shelterbelt left off and is the best representation of where the band sits now.
The Brass Messengers new release, Thigmonasty is an album of all original material recorded both live with lots of friends and in the studio all by themselves. All of the songs are made for dancing, whether tango, circus or celebration inspired. They've got an original by Dreamland Faces' Andy McKormick and a new Dancehall remix from their HONK! friend Ian Campbell.
There will also be honey tasting of Bolton Bees' 2016 honey harvest and jars of their "Tree Party" honey for sale.
