The Tower of Dudes
from Victoria BC
The Tower of Dudes is a high-octane, traveling folk-gypsy-country-punk band that employs an impressive variety of instruments. Their energetic stage presence and rapid fire delivery has been known to incite dancing, chanting and demented sing-a-longs that only end when this band of half-crazed misfits either pass out, or explode.
Their eclectic range of instrumentation: accordion, mandolin, banjo, melodica, vibraphones, washboard, and other musical tackle, separates this band from standard punk-rock acts. Their driving rhythms, pulsating bass lines and pounding beats send them soaring far beyond any folk or country bands. The Tower of Dudes cynical, often humorous lyrics tickle the ribs of even the most ardent jazz-snob.
