2021 Almost Done Ho Boi!

Four more days till the end of this epic year! In August I rehearsed, premiered and recorded a multimedia album “Alley Flowers” in Cumberland. This fall Balkan Shmalkan finished recording and mixing a new album (release date TBA spring 2022) and played a stack of great shows this fall/winter. Teapot in the Tuba became the darlings of the Burnaby Financial report and we wrapped our last gig for 2021 as New York Deer. Everybody felt it when Covid struck hard in the last two weeks of December when holiday gigs and events got cancelled for a second year running and the snappy cold hit. I guess it’s time to update the gig list:
