Platinum-Selling Jazz Rockers Squirrel Nut Zippers To Perform Carnegie Hall Citywide Series In Bryant Park
The Band Will Perform Songs From Latest Album As Well As Greatest Hits
Platinum-Selling Jazz Rockers Squirrel Nut Zippers (SNZ) have announced that they will be continuing their cross-country U.S. Tour as they perform a series of summer dates that kick off July 15 at Carnegie Hall Citywide Series in New York City. These select dates will precede the SNZ’s highly-anticipated tour with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Tickets are available at https://www.snzippers.com/tourdates.
During the tour, the SNZ have been performing their greatest hits as well as songs from their latest critically-acclaimed album Lost Songs Of Doc Souchon, which features 10 brand-new tracks – a combination of newly-penned Zippers songs, along with a few tunes from past times.
“This album was inspired by all of the mysterious characters from the history of New Orleans jazz music,” said band leader Jimbo Mathus. “It speaks to the hidden roots of where our aesthetic, interests and philosophy comes from. It pulls on the hidden thread.”
SNZ, whose last studio album titled Beasts Of Burgundy debuted at #4 on the Billboard Jazz Albums Chart, have released nine studio records throughout their career including their pivotal album Hot (1996). Lauded for taking their signature style of anti-establishment sound to commercial radio, Hot was the band’s sophomore album and was certified Platinum in 1997.
