The multi-horn, multi-drummer, multi-singer, brass funk band My Son The Hurricane has sold out shows at Canadian, American, and European venues, and they continue to solidify themselves as one of Canada’s premier live music acts.
The band has unveiled their funky new single, “Mississippi ’88”, which is inspired by classic spy films, espionage, Get Smart, and the great Carmen Sandiego. The 12-piece brass beast spin some funk around this tale of a young female spy, code-named the Mississippi ’88.
“Musically the intro had been thrown around in practice for years, coupled with some new ideas it seemed the perfect base to tell a story of campy espionage! We understand that we aren’t writing “Bridge over Troubled Water” here, just having fun and we know this one will get the dance floors cooking.”
