The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra performed at a house concert hosted by Martin Comtois at his place on Cameron Street Saturday, June 16.
It turned into a pleasant evening of outdoor feasting, dancing and listening to the eclectic sound of this five-piece acoustic band.
Local musician Mark Lees responded to the need of a bass player Peter Mynett who broke the low “E” string of his stand-up bass, and loaned the group his Cort bass for the night.
The band members who hail from Alberta and British Columbia, were freshly back from a six-week recording session in Toronto with award-winning producer David Travers-Smith.
Their new album Follow My Lead; Lead Me to Follow will be released in the fall. Those who missed the concert can catch Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra this summer at Arts Wells.
